Honestly. FWIW I'm a sysadmin in control of about 70 boxes, a Sun SAN several Cisco PIX servers /Checkpoint and juniper firewalls - an enterprise ESX server and whatever else you can think of. Hosted across 3 bluesquare and 2 C&W data centers in central. With SC clearance due to .gov projects. And the rest of it. Just as we are playing the pissing contest game.

The OP's actual question has long since fallen beneath a shroud of "I am the best nerd" and frankly it is pathetic.


It's OK to be wrong sometimes Dave. HTH

These days, there is little point in Cat 6, unless you want to use it for it's improved EMC properties (over 5e).

Ethernets use a balanced signal over twisted pairs over relatively high frequencies. Unbalance the signal (by installing incorrectly or running the two components of a balanced pair in parallel) then the signal to noise ratio becomes too great and you can't get the signal from point A to B (this is also length dependent).

Either use 5e or 6A.

IT infrastructure consultancy. Mostly revolves around the specification of the physical side of things (i.e. Cabling).

For the record. I might have overreacted. Slightly.

What the fuck happened here. I don't care about cables, but in the cabling world I believe Ed gets paid to know stuff, so he is Top Trump on this one.

I find 3 core cooker cable gives me great gigabit connections between my three machines

It's a bit of a bastard to terminate but once you get the hang of that, it's a winner
