dcole13: I have heard that Cat5e can do 10 Gigabit, is this true?


Maybe over a very short distance.  Cat6 has more twists, better pair separation, and heavier copper.  So it is really quite different electrically at those high frequencies.


Plus that long shaft in the middle :)

(Core/Separator)

Not sure if sex joke or just saying that

Also, Tim what do you do at voda?


He gets JohnR's Coffee.

Anyone know where to get RJ45 keystones? Doesn't need to be 10gbps as that's a future upgrade

Yeah we have J A russell account, but they are still quite expensive, is there any rules about getting them from places in Asia?

Guys. Hard question. What color cable should I get? I'm thinking red so when I make patch cables I can distinguish between cat5e and cat6. Thoughts?

My thoughts are you are seriosuly over thinking this lol...

Seriously don't waste your time making patch cords. Just buy pretty colour ones and then you have the choice of like 10 colours!

The way we do things (and how the MoE do it) is this...
Red - Servers
Yellow - Uplink
Blue - Data
White - Wireless AP's

Then we normally just use beige or grey for any voice cabling.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

I would but really I have a load of Cat5e and it would be cheaper for me to just make my own, it doesn't take that long to make one and I would feel better.


Also, would these be okay to use?
