Depends on what you use it for.

It is either a patch cable (same color sequence both ends), or crosslink. The latter is for connecting PC to PC.

What do you mean by color sequence? Do you mean like the colors for each like pin at the end of the cable?

Then its a patch cable. You can connect your PC with the router with it for example.

It not going to be the cable. Its going to be the networking settings.

Please explain to us what you are trying to acheive and your current physical network set up.

No offense but it sounds like the OP is a bit of a newbie when it comes to networking. Sometimes it isn't as easy as plug in an go.

The PC didn't ''find'' the cable and there aren't any form for LEDS blinking on the back of the PC, and I'm at a friends house and he is using a cable and it works just fine for him so I guess the router is properly set up.
