Question regarding draw on switch.

Unanswered Question

If I have a port on a switch connected to a 100 foot ethernet cable but nothing connected at the opposite end will this cause any problems? Can it act as an antenna?

I have this problem too.

That will cause no problems. There are many networks where many a switch port connects to a long cable run that terminates at a wall jack, with nothing plugged in.
