Crossover LAN cable

Hi All

Need help to get a crossover lan cable to connect LAN cable between 2 computers for file transfer purposes. No access to USB ports etc.

Anybody knows where I can buy?

No need for crossover cable. All modern network cards are auto MDI/MDIX now, and will automatically switch as necessary

as mentioned. All modern network cards have the capability to auto detect and crossover as necessary. The crossover cable is a legacy thing that many people still think is needed. Unless of course you are networking very very old computers.
