For any Cat 5 cable, the maximum segment length is 100 meters per segment.


The price of any cable will change depending on the length needed. I was able to find a cat 5 cable for as low as $0.99 and one for as high as $55.00.


Cat 5/5e/6 cable has a maximum installed length of 100m, but that is a written standard, not an operational maximum.


You can tell the CAT level (or category) of a cable by looking for imprinted markings along the length of the cable. Look for the number preceded by 'CAT.' That is the category of the cable.



A Cat 5 cable is an Ethernet cable, used in computer networks. Cat 5 cables are designed for high signal integrity, and can carry two separate telephone lines.


There is the USB cable and the twisted pair cable (Cat 5 and Cat 6) for networking.


Cat-5 cable, sometimes called Ethernet cable, is short for Category 5 cable, a current industry standard for network and telephone wiring. Cat-5 cable is unshielded wire containing four pairs of 24-gauge twisted copper pairs, terminating in an RJ-45 jack. If a wire is certified as Cat-5 and not just a twisted pair wire, it will have "Cat-5" printed on the shielding.


Yes, it is a very good and reliable company. It is the best. Just go to this link http://www.cat-5-cable-company.com/ Order your category 5 or cat 5 cable.


A cat - 5 cable uses four twisted pairs of wires. This is a total of eight wires in the cable set.


There are 8 wires in cat 5-e cable.


You can use CAT 5 ethernet cable or the higher grade CAT 6


Just buy any Cat 5 or Cat 6 ethernet cable. The only concern you should have is about which length you purchase. It needs to be long enough to connect from the back of your PS2 to the Modem or router


A Cat-6 cable has more twists than a Cat-5 cable, meaning that a Cat-6 cable has less crosstalk and interference.


The "e" in Cat-5 stands for enhanced. A Cat-5 cable has more twists than a Cat-5 cable, meaning that there will be less crosstalk and interference.


Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat7


It's short for "category five", which is a type of cabling. The "Cat 5" part refers to the technical specifications of the cable, such as the bandwidth. Cat 5 cable is (usually) unshielded twisted-pair.


$10-30 depending on size or length, type (cat 5 or cat 6) quality, and whether you are paying full retail for an item that is normally discounted


Cat 5 is a type or standard of ethernet cable (350 Mhz) and is not as good as the Cat 6 (500+Mhz) which will work wherever you were going to use the Cat 5 ethernet cable and not require replacement as cable/DSL broadband internet speeds increase


The maximum allowed length of a Cat-6 cable is 100 meters (330 ft) when used for 10/100/1000baseT and 55 meters (180 ft) when used for 10GbaseT


i think a CAT 5 cable is either 5 channels are its a recommended cable.Anymore questions contact me my e mail is micaela.briggs@yahoo.com.My name is Micaela by the way


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.


The Cable Cat 6 is an Ethernet cable that supports fast Ethernet 10G BASE-T. This cable is available in a 20 meter length online from various retailers including cabling4less.


Cat 5 is a type or standard of ethernet cable (350 Mhz) and is not as good as the Cat 6 (500+Mhz) which will work wherever you were going to use the Cat 5 ethernet cable and not require replacement as cable/DSL broadband internet speeds increase


That depends on what you will be using the cable for. In general, the higher the frequency of the signal being sent down the cable, the shorter the cable has to be. The environment of the cable is also important. If the cable is in an electrically noisy environment, it needs to be shorter. There are various standards that specify the maximum length of a cable. Sometimes it will work (some of the time) if you use a longer piece of cable, but following the standard is much more likely to work correctly all the time. Some examples from computer networking standars: For 10BASE-T Ethernet, the maximum length of a cable is 100 meters. Note that this standard was defined for Cat 3 cable, so you'll probably be able to use Cat 5e cable to send the signal further. However, there's no standard specifying how much further - you'll probably have to test it yourself. For 100BASE-T Ethernet, the maximum length is also 100 meters, but the cable grade is specified as Cat 5 (not Cat 5e). So you might be able to make a longer run work with Cat 5e. For 1000BASE-T Ethernet, again the maximum length is 100 meters, but now the cable must be Cat 5e. Also, all four pairs of the cable are used, whereas in the other two standards only two pairs are used. HTH, Gdunge
