    I was reading this, ,
    and I want to ask something related to the ¨Crossover Cable¨,
    does the information there means that the cable is diferent to the one I already
    use?,
    is it like inverted?,
    and laso, can I buy a ¨Crossover Cable¨ at a store?

    Yes, you can buy the cable at staples. Basically, the "send" wires on one end is connected to the "receive" wires on the other end and vice-versa (hince crossover). I use it to connect directly to another computer without a router. Otherwise, if you use a normal network cable between 2 computers, the "send" wires on both will be connected but the "receive" wires will never receive a signal...then you'll need a router or switch box.
