Re: Achieving gibabit thruput in CAT 5 LAN

There are dozens of references to 1gb over cat5. Hit google (or your fav. search tool) and take your pick. Just remember cat5 is more than a type of cable. It covers the entire structure so good cat5 cable that busts the installation requirements may cause problems. It certainly did when we bumped from 10mb to 100mb on a few of our runs.
