    I found this ethernet coupling and opened it up. If you find one like this its really easy to make a crossover coupling. Just switch 1 for 3 and 2 for 6. 1 is the one bent down. Just bend the wire down and it pulls right out so you can switch it.

    Then just use 2 regular straight cables. I seem to have about 10 in a box here just laying around.
