So it's cheap - and it works using a hub which I know is what it is intended for and I know it's not a cross-over cable so I can't expect too much more than that.
Even if it's NOT a crossover cable - these days even straight through cables are detected on windows machines and automatically crossed over at the network card to make Node to Node connectivity possible. For some reason this one does not do it.
Good quality actually - and useful for cable testers or as promo items but otherwise useless for what I need.
I will try the other one that's available here and see if that one will do a Node 2 Node connection like all other CAT5 cables you can buy in a shop.
Still really happy with it - but I'm just hurting that I bought 20 of them and they didn't do Node 2 Node...
