ID this cable please

By jennyn ·
Found a network (Cat53) cable with the following wiring at the jacks:

END-1
brown/brown-white/orange/orange-white/blue/green-white/blue-white/green
END-2
blue/orange-white/orange/blue-white/green-white/green/brown/brown-white

the jacks are wired well, and it looks like someone did this intentionally, jacks are so neat, it looks machine made.

What's it for??? (curiosity only - thus the low points - sorry!)

Fraid not - doesn't look like any crossover I've seen before - or like the crossover in your link... reread spec.

Crossover is
END1
Orange-white/Orange/green-white/blue/blue-white/green/brown-white/brown
END2
Green-white/Green/Orange-white/blue/blue-white/Orange/Brown-white/brown

Ready for next suggestion...

Is cross-over cable for eithernet only ! Wire color code does not matter except between the 2 ends !

FYI - Even that can be fixed in the jack to wire interface.

Or the guy that made it was color blind !

OK - clarify - cos I can't see any logic even between the two ends. Even if this was a crossover using the wrong colors, say blue and brown, it wouldn't be right... explain agian and maybe I'll concede the points!! :) or maybe the cable is just a piece of shhhhh...
