|ahhh, so RJ45's have to be rated for CAT6!!!|
i thought all RJ45 are the same...
I should clarify....sorry, I realize upon rereading my last post I misspoke, or at least, wasn't completely clear.
With the RJ45 ends (male) they're typically not specific to a cable type (ie: Cat5e or Cat6) The keystone style RJ45 connectors (female) on the other hand are.
As far as I know, there are two types of RJ45 ends (male). The type you use with solid core wire and the type you use with stranded core wire.
Solid core = 1 single piece of copper in each wire
Stranded = multiple (smaller) wires combined together to form each wire.
One thing to keep in mind, at this point in time I have not made any Cat6 patch cables (but I've made a bajillion with Cat5 and Cat5e). The RJ45 ends for Cat6 may be specific. I know all the Cat6 I've worked with to-date has a thicker casing than Cat5e and also has a divider inside. Typically though, when you pull cable through a wall, it will terminate to a patch panel at one end and a keystone at the other end.
but my router wont mind RJ45 rated for CAT6, even thought it is not gigabite router?
It not only won't mind, it won't know the difference between Cat6 and Cat5e
my gigabit network exist only after my gateway (inside my house till my router)... is that right??? thats why i need CAT6 inside...
A typical SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) router is 100 or 1000 Mbps to the desktop (ie: the LAN ports) whereas I've never heard of one with a WAN (external) port that was more than 100 Mbps.
Most ADSL and Cable highspeed connections are from 1.5 to 100 Mbps.
100 Mbps is still rare but it's coming available in more and more places.
Most telco's (telephone companies) typically use a Cat3 type cable because it works perfectly for their needs. It doesn't work for networking. Keep in mind, your ADSL comes through the phone line, into your house to a device called a "modem" (MOdulate/DEModulate) which switches the signal from phone line to network cable. Some Modems are "combo" units which are a modem, a SOHO Router and a wireless access point all in one.
Oh and you're not bothering me and like you, I always like to understand as fully as possible.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
