nGWY1 vs nGWY2: Do I Need To Use A Crossover Cable When Connecting Directly To The Gateway With A Computer?

nGWY1 requires a cross-over cable to connect directly with a laptop.

nGWY2 does not require a cross-over cable, a straight-through cable will work fine (generally T568-B) when connecting directly to a laptop.  The nGWY2 has a LAN8720 Ethernit chip with Auto-MDIX.
