95 meters is simply too long. No way of getting a signal on the other end without the use of a repeater. The maximum distance for CAT5e and CAT6 is 295ft, which is roughly 90 meters, but even that only works in an ideal environment. Often the max distance is announced with "300ft = 100m", but that is not true (and 300ft are only 95 meters anyways.)

The best option is fiber optic cable, but that is very expensive.

Read also this article - it has some good explanations and comments.
I would buy a cheap router (WRT54G i.e.) and modify it with some third-party firmware as repeater. That would cost you not more than 25-50$. (Tip: google "Router as Repeater", and you will find many results.)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Max distance for Cat5e cable is about 100M, but that is the best case scenario, essentially a straight line, down a building. If you have any kind of interference, like flourescent lighting, high voltage lines running parallel to the ethernet cable, the distance will be much less than 100M. Although it looks like you have 60 feet to spare, anything interfering with the cables will cut the signal down. Try to move the switches closer together, make the cable from pc to switch longer and ADSL modem to switch longer and cable between switches shorter. Use a known good straight through ethernet cable, as modern switches don't require crossover cables.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_5e#Maximum_cable_segment_length

According to the ANSI/TIA/EIA standard for category 5e cable, (TIA/EIA 568-5-A[5]) the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 meters (328 feet). If longer runs are required, the use of active hardware such as a repeater, or a switch, is necessary.[6] [7] This 100 meter limit is all inclusive. According to some authors,[who?] the practical limit for permanently installed cable is about 90 meters, leaving 5 meters at each end for the patch cables that connect the end equipment to the wall panel.

Hope this helps.

Need to know what i need to connect my prewired home (with cat5 cable running from box in garage to jacks in 4 rooms) to the internet. currently just have cable modem in office.


You would need a 4 - 8 port router... with a wire going to each Jack... and these would plug into the Router ports, The router plugs into the Modem. You have to put the Ethernet plugs on each end of the Cat5 cable. Then you setup your network. But if you have a wireless router you simply need each PC WiFi enabled, IE: A wireless card in each PC, that way you do NOT need Cat5. Then each PC, simply connects to the Router/Modem.

Well see Cat5 & Cat6 are different spec's and are wired differently...They have different wires inside the cable. You would be able to use the actual Wires, BUT they will have to be wired to the "Other" standard in the Outlet Jacks. Either that or get one that works on Cat6. http://www.connectworld.net/syscon/support.htm

Hi Joe,

How are you connecting to the port in the back of your router? if you have crimped a male plug on to some UTP cable then this may be the problem. UTP cable has a solid condutor and needs a different male crimp plug than UTP patch cable, which has stranded conductors.

I suggest you connect the UTP cable between the office and the loft to an RJ45 wall or surface socket in the office, use a terminating tool designed for the make and type of outlet you use, i.e. if using an ADC socket use the ADC termination tool. The sockets are designed for solid cable and have a colour code for you to follow. Then use a factory terminated patch cord between this socket and the router port.

I assume you have terminated the cable from the office onto one of the patch panel ports and want to use a patch cord to patch from this incoming socket to the sockets that are terminated onto the cables going to your other rooms. If you have access to a laptop connect this directly into the router port and ensure you have an internet connection, then plug the patch cord connecting the loft port into the router and take the laptop into the loft and ensure you have a connection at the incoming port on the patch panel. If you get the connnection there then use a factory patch cord to patch to a room you would like a connection in and then take the laptop to that outlet and ensure you have a connection.

If you want to run outlets in multiple rooms without re-patching every time then you will need to have an active switch in your loft and connect the port from the office to this and then patch out of the switch ports to the various room outlets.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Jason

Is it possible to have 2 pieces routers to expand the distribution of internet connection instead of using router to hub? what type of cabling should i used to do it? please help thanks


I guess you have a single incoming internet connection and wish it to be shared.

You only require one DSL / Cable router. To share this connectivity you will need Ethernet / Cat5 or wireless.

An ethernet switch or hub will enable you to extend connectivity.

All cable should be CAT5e or CAT6.
Suggest you consider the slightly more expensive switches that have auto-uplink. The negates the need of crossover cables.

Blinking light on NetGear FS108


One LED is a Link light that will blink on activity.
The other shows link speed.
These boxes have AutoUplink negotiation so no crossover cables are required.
Test again with a standard straight though ethernet / CAT5 cable.
