100 Ft Cat5e cable

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought a 100ft cable to run through the attic up and over everything all the way to the living room where my computer is. The question I have is the cable I got from (rhymes with flea bay), after I got it in the mail I noticed didn't have any shielding in it, its just the wires and plastic over the 8 wires that are in it. Will that cause any problems with my gaming computer?


oh here's the link if it works for you

It might be a problem if the cable runs parallel and next to other wiring (e.g. electrical wiring) due to RFI or EMI.

That is just standard UTP cabling. As already mentioned above, there could be problems with other electrical cabling, but not additional ethernet cabling. The twisted pairs reduce EMI. The distance is fine also.

So I think I should get back up there and make sure it doesn't run with any electrical wiring and then I'll be fine. Thanks for the replys.

UTP ethernet cables are the norm. Even if it did run next to other wiring, I'd still test it since the cable is very cheap. STP cables' price range goes between 3 to 10 times the price tag of regular UTP.

~115v won't mess with it much - just keep it away from the ~240v or the main coming into the circuit breaker box and you'll be just fine smile.gif

Still, shielded cable is the way to go next time.
