Cat5 Vs Cat6

Recommended Posts

since I have just been upgraded to 200meg speed, I had to buy a new router that was fast enough to handle the higher speed. I did a speed test on my computer with the old router and got 75meg speed, since hooking up the new router, my speed jumped up to 215meg. I have a smart TV hooked up to the network, so I did a speed test on that with the new router, and it only hit 73meg. thinking it could be the 50 foot cat5e cable, I hooked up my old computer at my TV, and that only hit 73. my question is if I get a newer cat6 cable, will that get the same speed, or the 200meg speed to the TV?

It is hard to say if the cable is the bottleneck. It could also be the NIC card in the old computer but... since the TV is getting the same speed it sure seems like the feed cable is the bottleneck. Wish I was closer cause it would take no time to whip up a new cable vs what it cost to buy one. Cat 5 is smaller gauge wires and less twist per inch then Cat 6

Looking at Amazon, you can buy a 50 foot cat 7 ethernet cable for 15 bucks. It might be worth an experiment.

well I was at menards today, so I picked up a 50ft cat6 cable for only 13 bucks, I hooked it up, and still only got 75meg speed on the TV. I did not try the computer. I am thinking its all the faster the TV can run. I will hook up the computer sunday for a test.

    • pulled the sled out, turned the key after putting in fresh gas, and it fired up spot on. seems to want to go, as it jumped at a little throttle, bring on the snow, its ready.
    • Del is correct 3ea 12v batteries in series are required to get 36v. 2 in series to get 24v and each battery 12v. You can connect a + and - wire to each individual battery, while wired in series, and run 3 separate 12v isolated devices. A + and - to either of 2 in series gives you 24v.   You NEED a "3 bank marine charger" which has 3+ and 3- charging wires which charges the 3 batteries independent of each battery. When one battery reaches full charge, that bank shuts off other 2 banks continue to charge until respective batteries are fully charged. Batteries will not overcharge.    You can run both 36v and 24v motors on a 3 in series batteries but DON'T run both at the same time. Current draw on the 2 24v batteries will greatly reduce battery life and under serve current on the 36v motor.   Best solution is separate battery banks and chargers for each motor and a separate 12v for starting motor and running 12v electronics.    Suggestion, carry a set of jumper cables long enough to reach from the battery bank to your primary motor battery. If your starter battery dies 5 miles off shore, just jumper to any one of the trolling motor batteries to start your engine.
    • Well that game went about as expected. Was worse for me, because my directv went out, so I had to listen to the game. Couple plays I wish they would have done differently...go for the touchdown at the end of the first half, instead of field goal. And when it was 4th down midway through the 4th quarter, they should have kicked the field goal instead of going for it. Was fun having a top ten ranking while it lasted. That loss guaranteed gameday won’t be here for Wisconsin game.
    • You definitely want a salt shield as it will keep SOME slush gravel  etc off of the sleds but plenty still comes over so you want to have a quality cover on your sled to
    • I have wondered what happens to those mallards that the kids feed bread to all summer on Vermilion when duck season starts...  Summer... walk out on the dock and here they come....  Fall ????
    • All the corn I have starts with an A.  And I have plenty of them.  A couple houses hung too.  Spose I should put the Free Food and Lodging sign And get some more takers. 🌰🦆👨‍🍳
    • You know if you feed them corn all summer, they are extra tasty and easy to shoot in the fall...😀
