Cat5e Patch or Crossover cable from ONT to Router?

Message 1 of 2

Having FIOS internet installed on Monday.  I want to run Cat5e from where the ONT will be placed to the location of the new router.  Want to do this in advance so that I can run inside walls and through the attic.  My question is, do I want a Cat5e patch cable or Cat5e Crossover cable between the ONT and the router?  May be a dumb questions, but given the amount of work to fish through my walls, I don't want to have to do it twice.

 

Thanks, Jon

If you question is should it be wired for 568A or 568B it doesn't matter as long as both ends are the same.
