how much cat 5 can you run before you start to get resistance from the cable its self
just want an answer need to run one about 50 or 60 feet to hard wire xbox sick of wireless adapter.
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!)
and thanks for the none comment i thought this forum was for people who need help but apparently it is for smart a**es.
thanks yoda for your help router to xbox 360
Wasn't being one.
That's technically the only right answer.
For your xbox, you're good to about 100 meters.
I'll bet you meant facetious.
100 meters sounds good way more then i prob. need thanks
100 m = 328.083 feet for those not use to metric
If he's being a smart***, then it's fecalious.
I'll bet you meant fecalicious.
That depends upon your tastes. :eek2:
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.
Now you're confusing my being facetious with your being felatious.
There is alot of people here that are willing to help. If you feel that people are not being respectful or rude. You can always click on the "report post" button to the left.
I have about a 300 ft run of Cat5 DB going from my house to my office and I have no problems here.
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)
