Source: Zaib Kaleem. “Ethernet Crossover Cable Pinout”. WlanBook. WlanBook, 16 March 2008 . Web. 12 December 2011 . 2. (4 points)  Discuss why it is important to cross the pins in the cable. Include the functions of  the pins and the problem solved with crossover. A: It’s important to cross the pins in the cable. The main reason is to reduce EMI and RFI  caused by crosstalk. It will also cause the data to be lost or not able to send and receive  functions are crossed over at both ends of the cable. Also, it combines of clocking and data  into a stream with low error rate. 3. ( 2 points ) Explain why it is important to have no more than   1/2" of wire extend from the  outer sheathing of the cable.   A: If it’s more than ½ of wire out of sheathing of the cable, it will be very fragile and easily  to break if someone pull the wire. It is better to make sure the cable is in the sheathing of the  cable to reduce the risk of have cable break. 4.
