Does the Thunderbolt/Gigabit Ethernet Adapter support auto cable detect?

IE, will the adapter sense whether it is connected to a patch cable or a crossover cable, and adjust transmit/receive line assignments as appropriate?

    I tested it and no it does not. You will need a cross connect cable instead.
    Good news, if needed you can increase the MTU to 9000
