4 pairs of wires, or 8 wires total

Cat, stand for category. A category 5 cable may be used as ethernet cables, telephone cords, or tv video. Each category of cable pertains to the level of cable. For example the category 1 is the most primitive.

Pins 4 - 5 and 7 - 8 are not used for carrying network signals. They may be used for other purposes.

Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) is twisted pair cabling includes a shield.This type of cabling is not commonly seen in modern LAN networks deployments till 2011 however some newer very high speed Ethernet technologies may require a cable that has a shield.

A cable or wifi. If a cable is used, it may be classed as a serial, parallel, or USB connecting cable - depending on the type of printer.

Cat 5 is the lowest standard that can be used for Ethernet networks, which are typically used to connect computers to DSL or Cable Modems. It is capable of delivering speeds compliant with the 10-BaseT Ethernet standard, which runs at 10 Mbps. Cat 5e is the next step up, which can run at 100-BaseT (100 Mbps) Cat 6 cable is usable for Gigabit (1 Gbps, or 1000 Mbps) connections. Since DSL or Cable Modems can only operate at a maximum efficiency of 5 Mbps, and Cat 5 is the cheapest of the three cable choices, Cat 5 is the most cost-effective solution for internet connections. If your network hardware (adapters, routers, switches, hubs) are capable of hosting 100-BaseT or Gigabit connections, and you plan on swapping files locally (within your home network), then Cat 5e or Cat 6 may be reccommendable.

You may need a "return" for the signal. If you do not the other wire is twisted in various configurations along the length to reduce crosstalk and signal leakage. It is easier to balance capacitive loads,

If your cable box has a HDMI cable port, buy an HDMI cable to connect the TV to the cable box. The next best alternative is to use a S-Video cable with a pair of Audio cables. The third best alternative is to use a RF Coaxial cable. The last option is to use a composite Video and L/R Audio cables.You should note that while the TV may be HD capable, the cable box may not support HD so you will have to upgrade your cable box to a HD compatible cable box.

Cat cameras are used to capture the nature of outdoor activities that a cat may partake in. It's basically used as a research device that records the activity and behavior of outdoor cats.

Capacity for cable 70mm (143-212 amp) and may vary depending on installation method used.

CMR cable is Communications Riser cable. It is used in risers or shafts from floor to floor and only a riser or plenum (CMP) cable may be used for that purpose. Though CMP can be used in lieu of CMR, you cannot use CMR in a plenum space. CMR and CMP are fire resistance classifications. CM is for general purpose that may be used elsewhere not requiring special fire code considerations.

A stray cat may just be a cat which wanders outside all the time. A feral cat is a cat that isn't used to being around humans and may be terrified around them or violent. Stray cats usually aren't violent or terrified of people.

You may mean "COAX" cable, or Coaxial cable, which is the large, round cable wire with a single pin that is used to provide cable television, internet, of phone service. These cables are inexpensive and standard for most cable-line services. They may be purchased at any electronic store.

If the cable is broken at the handle in the car, you may be able to grap the broken cable with a pair of locking pliers. If you can, pull it while you have someone pushing down on the hood. That will make it easier for it to unlatch. If it's broken where you can't reach it, oh boy, you may be able to grab the cable housing through the grill, cut it and grab the inner cable that way. Hope this helps. Good luck. 1

Yes, but depending on the environment and the specifications of the data port it may not perform to the data port's potential. Cat-5 has lower quality standards and may not prevent enough EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) to support the full speed.

One may use Cat5e network cable in bulk to connect to the internet or ethernet. Large amounts of cable may be used in a business or office setting to improve signals and connections.

Since you asked what they are used for, and did not ask what they are made from, here goes: Cat 1 (an informal term) - telephones, doorbells, burglar alarms, thermostats and ISDN. Cat 2 (also informal) - 4 Mbit Token Ring networks Cat 3 (official rating) - 10 Mbit ethernet Cat 4 (informal) - 16 Mbit token ring Cat 5 (informal) - 100 Mbit ethernet Cat 5e (The official term for rated cable) - 100 Mbit ethernet and 1000 Mbit, or 1 Gigabit. Note that only Cat 3 and Cat 5e are officially rated by EIA and it's spinoff TIA. Any wire will work with a lower service (Cat 5, say, will do everything Cat 4 will do), so many buildings are wired with just Cat 5e, since it reduces the inventory that the builder needs to carry. A lower rated wire, especially those with informal ratings may look the same electrically, but may have nonstandard insulation colors, etc. Also, there may be additional ratings, such as fire resistance, or ability to bend around corners, that are not covered by ratings. In a given city, or under a given building code, tighter restrictions may apply.

It's more expensive than using twisted pair cables in a network.Fiber-optic cables can be expensive, so depending on the user's budget and the extent to which they will be used it may not be feasible.

Advantages and disadvantages of each are application dependent. With Verizon FIOS for example, the Fiber to the house is converted to twisted pair for a CAT-5 connection and coax for TV applications. Fiber can carry a lot of data but the termination process and modulation and demodulation may be more expensive. Twisted pair is cheap, but has distance limitations. Coax can also carry a lot of information, but is more subject to radio frequency interference.

A 34-pin ribbon cable will connect a floppy drive.A 40 (or 80) conductor ribbon cable is for (E)IDE devices.Other ribbon cables may be used (80 conductor for SCSI, and in older systems, MFM and RLL Hard drives).A smaller ribbon cable (10 conductors) may be used for USB Headers.I think that covers most of them.

Money. A linear bus network may be the least expensive way to install a network; you do not have to purchase concentrators.Length of cable needed. The linear bus network uses shorter lengths of cable.Future growth. With a star topology, expanding a network is easily done by adding another concentrator.Cable type. The most common cable in schools is unshielded twisted pair, which is most often used with star topologies.

If it is just the inside handle broken off you can pull the cable with a pair of pliers. If it is in the middle, you should be able to reach up from underneath and cut the cable and then pull the inside cable. If the latch end has pulled off, you may be able to trip the latch from underneath, or take the grill out and unbolt the latch.

It's 100 meters according to the specification. This is set as 90 meters for in-wall cable and 10 meters for patch cords. You may be able to get the proper performance at longer distances, but even though the cable may perform at distances greater than 100 meters, the installation would still fail as 'out of spec.'

A computer monitor splitter cable is used to send video signal from one monitor to a second monitor. This may be helpful when making presentations to meetings or for demonstrations in classrooms.

You may need to contact your cable provider. MSNBC may have been removed from your cable provider or you may have to spend more money to get the extra channels. Please contact your cable provider to find out what is the problem. But before you do that try disconnecting the power to the cable box for a minute then readding it. Also, make sure the cable plug is secure. If you have used a cable splitter this may have resulted in the lose of that channel, make sure the cable box is attached to the outlet to the cable and not split with a splitter. If this is all completed and you still have the same issue contact your provider and you make need to pay more or have a technician come and to reprogram your cable box.
