What is so special about the Red cable for connecting the fibre modem to the hub? is it a crossover, standard or propietary cable?

The only thing special is the colour. The cables are colour coded just to help people plug the cable into the correct sockets.

It’s just a cheap Ethernet Cable, you can use any.

The only reason they were colour coded them was to make them idiot proof.

Sorry, let me rephrase that. It was to ‘try’ and make the idiot proof but unfortunately it doesn’t always work.
