The maximum length (maximum certifiable length) for CAT 5 patch or crossover cables is 328 feet (100 meters). Beyond that, you run the risk of signal loss and other complications.

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.

Two equipments of the same type - two computers, two routers, two switches - should be connected with a crossover cable.

Lag switch


Hey, you are dealing with high frequency - what a strange idea is this? Do you have a 100Mb/s- or 1Gb/s-network? What do you want to achieve?

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

CAT5e


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.

Transfering data from one computer to another


I think there is no way to do that. You CAN do it, however, with a crossover cable. It looks the same as a regular cable, but it's not. With the crossover cable, just connect the two computers and give 'em two IP's in the same network. Then enable file sharing and it should work. Sorry, I can't go into much detail because I haven't done that in a looong time, but I think that's about it. Hope it helps.

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.

A wide area network
