Fastest Cable for X-Link Kai/Ftp?

Recommended Posts

Is there any benefit to using a Cat6e crossover cable vs. any other type of crossover cable? I expect that the limiting factor would be the NIC in the Xbox, but I was curious to know if there are any benefits to using newer cabling standards for X-Link and FTP.

No, the Xbox only supports 10 or 100 Mbit per second data transfers  - Cat5 will do.

And most newer Ethernet ports support auto-MDI/MDI-x making a crossover cable unnecessary.  The port automagically connects the proper pairs of wires on each end to allow data to be transferred.  The Xbox does not do auto-MDI/MDI-X but if your computer's Ethernet supports it, you are good to go using either a crossover or standard Ethernet cable.
