Best if you can find someone willing to share a box
So each meter will work out around 35-60 cents depending on the brand.

Level 2 at a corner
LHS sells Belden, likely Made in China.

Sidetrack a bit, does anyone know where to get cheap DIY trunking.

Really waste the fibre bandwidth using wireless router only.

I plan to wire up my home, longest cable run per cable should not be more than 50m (2storey house, network equipment under the staircase) thinking of diy to save $$$. Cat 6 should suffix, use cat6a is waste $$ since not more than 50m right? Or even cat5e is enough? I heard cat6 & 5e price , what about cat6 & 6a?

Should I go for shielded or normal utp? If using shielded cat6 should go with shield jack(socket) otherwise as good as unshielded right? Similarly go for shielded plug? My understanding is go for shield if a lot of cables together or side by side with other electrical cable to prevent cross talk.

Are all plug & jack the same, or they also have cat5e/6 ?

Hope the experts here can advise.

Forget about shielded cable. Quote:
Although STP prevents interference better than UTP, it is more expensive and difficult to install. In addition, the metallic shielding must be grounded at both ends. If it is improperly grounded, the shield acts like an antenna and picks up unwanted signals. Because of its cost and difficulty with termination, STP is rarely used in Ethernet networks.

Note: grounding for high frequency circuits is not simply connecting to earth wire of ac supply. With high frequency, capacitance and inductance of cables come into play, becoming much more significant than cable resistance.

Additionally I believe your equipment must also be shielded in order to use shielded cables.

There is no difference over the short 25m. I tested before with a throughput test for 30m cable.

U can order 30m cable from DealExtreme.

thanks for the SIC...hooted the 15m one instead.

Does anyone know if ISTM Engineering at SLS or LHS at SLT sell quad 4 jack wall sockets for the ethernet cables?

Hi, I intend to get some Cat 6 cables for my Lan network at home.

The apartment has already been wired up using Cat 6 by the builder.

I will use short cables to link up the ONT to Router to Network Switch to Patch Panel. (all in one location).

Can anyone recommend be a good brand/Type of Cat 6 cable?

Thanks in advance!
