Wow, Thanks a lot.. Your reply has identified a litle problem i've been having.... I only get 10MBS thru a lot of cable runs I crimp... From the spec you point to...
"If you split the + and - signals so that each on is part of a different pair, then the cable may seem to work at 10 megabits per second (10BASE-T) but not at 100 except for short lengths (under 5 meters)."
Wow, that got it... I've pulled an additional CAT5 thru my
phone conduit at home (for a very nice home network). WHile I was very carefull to match the colors at each end crip, I didnt match the +/- pairs - Result: I only get 10x transfer thru some runs!!!
I inspected and re crimpted a couple runs and I got 100X everywhere now!!!
From now on I'l match the more than just colors! but the +/- pairs too...
Ya fixed a problem that's been buggin me for a about a yr now!
