Crossover Cable

I am going to be putting the laser in tomorrow and have heard somewhere that in order to use a cat5e or cat6 I have to use a crossover cable to use ethernet directly to my computer, making the cable is not a problem just wanted to know if this is the case. I will be connecting the computer I built for the laser over WIFI so will use the ethernet port on the computer to the laser.

sorry if this has been asked before, its my first post here …Thx for having me BTW

Any hardware built in the last ten years should have Auto-MDIX Ethernet ports. If your computer supports gigabit speeds it will certainly support auto-MDIX.

Of course the best test is to just try it and see.
