    You must already know this exceeds the distance limitation of Ethernet. Now, what does a "credit management" device do?



    Ethernet over that distance is done with ethernet extenders and serial data at slower speeds will travel the 200 meters without a problem or can be extended via short haul modem.

The max distance that Cat5e or Cat6 can be run is 90 meters or 295 feet. As cnavarro stated, signal repeaters would be best utilized in your situation up to 590 feet otherwise fiberoptics are the next and more expensive route. You should also divide the run equally with the repeater as it would not be effective with an offset balance.

I need networking cables, which cables are best for use.


CAT6 cables & jacks are better than CAT5E.
CAT5E cables & jacks are better than CAT5.
CAT5 cables & jacks are better than CAT3.
CAT3 cables have problems going faster than 10Mbit/second.
CAT5 cables support 100Mbit/second, and seem to work with 1000Mbit/second ("gigabit") devices.

The scrren either says resolution is not supported (mode 1) or the screen wiggles and shakes (mode 2). A directly connected pc works fine. I am sending to a tv with pc input as the remote display


The QVS VBC5 video extender supports a maximum resolution of 1600x1200 @ 60Hz for up to 50meters (164feet) & 1024x768 @ 60Hz for up to 100meters (330feet).

Make sure your maximum distance of Category 5 cable from your source to your television is no longer than 330 feet if using a 1024x768 resolution. Try dropping the resolution on your source computer in Mode 2 to resolve the issue.

I bought 1 box of belden cat5e for LAN. when i test it with LAN tester the cables are good but when i connect it to the modem/hub it is not connecting.. please help me.. thanks..


If you've tested the cable and your not getting a link light, there is a posibility that either the port in the switch or the network card is bad.You can try moving the cable to an existing working port on the switch to see if it links up. If not then try another device like a laptop or printer with a NIC card on the cable

Max cable lenght for cat 6e cable


The cable standard provides performance of up to 250 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T / 1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet). It is expected to suit the 10GBASE-T (10Gigabit Ethernet) standard, although with limitations on length if unshielded Cat 6 cable is used. Category 6 cable can be identified by the printing on the side of the cable sheath.

Cat5e is suitable for 10/100/1000baseT ethernet for 100 meters, when properly installed.
Cat 6 is also good for 10 gig ethernet for 37 meters, but that is pretty short, unless just in a server room.
There is no Cat 6e, but Cat 6A will be good for 10/100/1000/10GbaseT ethernet for 100 meters.
Unshielded Twisted Pair has no ground shield around the wires. It is the standard in the US, where most network standards were defined. There are extensions to the standards to allow for the more common in Europe, Shielded Twisted Pair.
Some Cat-6 cables are too large and may be difficult to attach to 8P8C connectors without a special modular piece and are technically not standard compliant. If components of the various cable standards are intermixed, the performance of the signal path will be limited to that of the lowest category. The maximum allowed length of a Cat-6 cable is 100 meters (330 ft) when used for 10/100/1000baseT and 37 meters (120 ft) when used for 10GbaseT. This applies for UTP cables only. Shielded Cat 6 and Cat 7 cables are capable of 100m.....sodeep

Plz explain me exactly for which purpose RJ-45 cable used ?


RJ -45 is a type of connector used on cat5, cat5e....etc cables to connect networked devices...the RJ stands for registered jack but there is really not much you really need to know about it....a RJ 45 JACK is a little bigger than a telephone jack, you'll notice the female type of input on your computer or laptop and the male end will be on the end of the cable that goes into this jack....hope this helps

CAT 5E DISTANCE


Considering what you started with, it should be slow :-)

If this were my installation I would run HUGESNET>Router>BRIDGE>BRIDGE>ROUTER/AP>PC

The first router is the 150N. The Bridges are two Wireless Access points in bridge mode designed for distance. A nice unit for this application is a TP-Link WA-601G with antennas (ANT2408) found here:

http://www.tplink.com/products/wlan.asp

It will cost you an extra $100-150 depending on antenna, but it should get you good results, considering the SAT is probably 300 down and 128 up :-)

Difrence of lan wan


The Lan limit on unshielded twisted pair cable (UTP) is 300 ft for a local area network (lan). The cable uses the 802.3 Of course if fiber is used in a LAN then this # can be extended substantially.

Now the main difference between the LAN and Wide Area Network (WAN) is that LANs typically have 1 brodacast domain and froward packets at data link (layer 2 of the OSI) level using MAC addresses.

The WAN operates at the network level (layer 3 of the OSI). WANs are and reads IP addresses. Routers can extend far distances (as you said 40-60km) and band with depends on distance. the further away, the more attenuation on the line.

I hope this helps.
