Answers Explanation & Hints:
The auto-MDIX feature allows the device to configure its network port according to the cable type that is used (straight-through or crossover) and the type of device that is connected to that port. When a port of a switch is configured with auto-MDIX, this switch can be connected to another switch by the use of either a straight-through cable or a crossover cable.
