Existing cable is CAT5e - New runs CAT6?
I have about 15 runs (3ft to 25ft) using CAT5e to RJ-45 ends and punch down wall outlets in my house today. Using this for streaming movies, music and data backups. I have about 200ft of the CAT5e cable left to use.
Should I continue my runs using this cable?
Can I use CAT6a in a mixed environment?
Does Cat6a require special rj45 ends or punch down for outlets?
