RJ45: Do I use straight or crossover cable between Virgin hub and switch?

Posted 2nd Jul 2021
Hi guys.

I've confused myself.

I understand that you must use straight unless you are connecting two similar devices.

My question is: do use straight patch cable between my Virgin router and my network switch? I'm not sure if those devices are considered similar.

Is this correct:

Virgin hub 3
|
straight patch cable
|
TP Link TL-SG105s (tp-link.com/uk/…05/)
|
straight patch cable
|
Laptop or TV or PS5


Thanks.
