    Exclamation Help! I really need a quick reply.

    Hi all. I got this assignment to map out a huge building with 5 workstations. I need to know the maximum length for standard cabling [gloworange](CAT5 UTP I think) [/gloworange] And if anyone knows any Ausralian sites that sell them please let me know!
    Thanks for the help all.

    Jonty,

    I really shouldn't tell you this, it could easily be found using any search engine... but its maximum length is 100 meters...

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Yeah thanks. I was so sure of it but, the only sites I found that sell them only went to 50 metres, which made me think. But thanks for telling me.

    Speed: 1000 Mbps
    Max Len: 100 Meters
    Cable: UTP, RJ-45 connectors


    Fast Ethernet, 100baseT
    Speed: 100 Mbps
    Max Len: 100 Meters
    Cable: UTP, RJ-45 connectors


    Twisted Pair Ethernet, 10baseT
    Speed: 10 Mbps
    Max Len: 100 Meters
    Cable: UTP, RJ-45 connectors


    Thin Ethernet , 10 base 2
    Speed: 10 Mbps
    Max Len: 185 Meters
    Cable: RG-58 type coax, 50 ohm impedance


    Thick Ethernet, 10 base 5
    Speed: 10 Mbps
