| Cat5e cable for home?|
Looking at the following cables to install about 22 cat5 drops in an existing house.
The 2nd one seems to be a little cheaper ~$50 vs ~$100. The 4981 and 1700 are rated to 350Mhz. Right now I have a 100Mb/s network, but would eventually like to go to gig.
Is the 350Mhz cable worth the 100% premium?

There is no requirement for 350Mhz even for gigabit ethernet. If you install the cables according to acceptable practices, you will be fine.
