the cat 6 cabling should be up to 1Gb.

try checking the port speed or your NIC, else the cable isn't terminated good and has too much noise. or it's quality is poor.

i thinks its quality problem, because i have tried by manually setting the 100MBPS property for NIC, if i do so it stop working at all. it only works if i run it on 10 MBPS.
