|I recently got Cat 5e outdor rated cable (manufacturer: generalcable). I need to do long distance wiring outside, and when I connected the communication failed. I guess this is because too long. Similar short wersion worked perfectly. |
What kind of cable should I use which gives me the longest horizontal run outside? Should I go Cat 6? where can get it in Miami Fl.?

To get the longest horizontal run over 295 feet (90 meter), you would need to run fiber and use media convertors for tyour system. All copper is limited to a link limit of 295 feet
