    They are being fecitious.

    Of course all lengths will have "some" resistance; that's the nature of the beast.

    More to your answer though; what are you using it for and how long of a run are you talking about.

    For ethernet or IR or phone usage, you can run several hundred feet without degrigation in terms of quality/noise to signal ratio.

    Official specs are as follows:

    (100Base-t IEEE 802.3u)
    100Base-T4 Category3 or 4 = 100Metres (4 pair)
    100Base-TX Category5 = 100Metres (2 pair)
    100Base-FX Multimode fibre = 2Km , single mode 10Km
    (100VG IEEE 802.12)
    Category 3 , 4 or 5 (4 pair) = 100Metres
    Multimode fibre = 2Km

    You also have Category 5 Levels 5 ,6 & 7 which surpass Category5
    There is also Cat5e

    While these newer categories may now enhance the lenght they go some way in helping the signal - meaning you can move data faster over the same distance.

    Of course in the 'real world' getting these distances can be a hit & miss affair , especially if you are cabling in an industrial zone. (Although there shouldn't that much interferance in your own home!)

    Wasn't being one.
    That's technically the only right answer.

    For your xbox, you're good to about 100 meters.

    I think once you've been around here long enough you get the idea who will be helpful and who is an asshat. From the looks of this thread though, you did get a pretty comprehensive answer. If you need any help on a play by play, don't hesitate to PM me and I'll walk you through installing and perhaps getting all the components needed depending on your needs.

    I hope we don't come to blows over this! :lol:

    Oh well, we amuse ourselves if nothing else. ;) That puts me in a state of felicity. (To save people from having to look it up: the state of being happy)
