I have a practical question.
When dealing with tranceiver cables, how does one tell the difference between
the three? I was told once that on a Ethernet tranceiver cable pin 1 (ground)
was missing; ground really being on pin 7. Is this true? Need I worry about
the type of tranceiver cable I use? The cables are rarely marked "For use with
802.3 etc.".
