Hi any one can tell me for what is the cable cat 5 using and. what are the best cat5 or cat5e.
cat5, cat6, cat5e are some of cable “categories”
the cat5 is a cable that can handle up to 100mbps in a 100meters range without suffering from external interference
and if the cable is cat5 the manufacturer tested the batch assuring that
the cat5e is a better one … “enhanced”
that could in theory handle up to 1gbps
but cat6 is actually less expensive and better than cat5e
Cat5 is designed for 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T
I can connected it to routers
what’s the desired range and troughput?
or WiFi …
(cable size I mean, not wifi coverage range)
Is note using to covered WiFi
ok, but what’s the wanted troughput?
For office I don’t think anything could be better than cat6 because even if your WAN is below the 1gbps, your internal network (file sharing and stuff) would be greatly improved
in my home I don’t even use cable anymore since the Linksys Velop mesh Network
so, cat6 is your way to go
5 metres … to home
cat5 and cat5e can deliver 100mbps top
if you need more than 100mbps you will need the cat because of the maximum frequency
