Yes you can

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

is it true that newer ethernet devices have crossover switching built into the ports? So you no longer need specific patch and crossover cables?

If you have the Macbook Pro, just look on it. The ethernet port is on one of the sides.

As for automatic crossover switching, it should not be assumed.

Crossover is PC stuff - the Mac senses which cable config is connected and just works
