#1

ok… i got a question about a cat5 cable… im gonna be hooking it into a router… is there any length limitations on how long the cable can be?

cause im planning on getting a 50ft cable… atleast 25ft minimum.

here is a couple i been looking at… http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=12-146-003&depa=0

and…

is there any differance in 350mhz and a basic cable?

100 metres on CAT5 although i know of some colleges who have it slightly longer but 100m is the recommended limit, your well within limits :wink:

A switch/router acts like a repeater and strengths the signal also. But Mr. B is right, you are still in for the recommended length.
