Cat5 cable question



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…


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.


thanks for the replys.
