I've now patched them all to a managed netgear switch and subsequently have that plugged into my router ( that is starting to die slowly but that's on another thread here ).
All work fine and I appear to be getting close to my max ADSL2 speeds at each wall socket i.e almost identical to the speed i get on the main desktop that is plugged directly into the modem/router so I'm thinking all good.
Standing here looking at one of the dynamix patch leads I see on the packet it says Cat 6 UTP Patch Lead 550 MHz (T568A Specification).
It's the T568A specification bit I'm obviously questioning. Does that matter. I'm guessing if it did then I wouldn't be seeing good data rates across the system etc?
Can some smarter person than me explain if it indeed matters or not ?
