That was what I first thought of.
When I did my feedback to the "router" distributor I suggested they add crossover cables to their catalogue.
He emailed me:
The ethernet ports on the ALIX 2-3 are autosensing for crossover/straight connections, so any cable should do the trick if yo don't find a crossover cable anywhere.
It turns out that ocicat got it as you noted. :]

Best wishes.
