Universal network cable

Via Cool Tools

The Universal Network Cable is another great gadget that helps me quickly and easily switch to the cable I need when working. You select the cables by rotating the yellow collar to one of the five cables including:

ROLLED: Connect a host to a Cisco(TM) router or switch
CROSSOVER: Communicate directly between computers without a hub or switch
STRAIGHT-THROUGH: Use as a standard RJ45 patch cable
ATM / LOOPBACK: Test if a network card is working by checking for link lights with no need for a hub or switch
T1: Connect to DDS lines / T1 trunk lines
