 RJ21-CAT5 distance
What is the maximum distance we can run RJ21-CAT5 25pair cable without enduring cross talk signal drop. Is it similar to standard CAT 5 4 pair of 100m or CAT5e 350m
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 14 Oct 2005
Dear PAUL,

All the same rules apply: 90 meters (295') for the link (cable run); 100 meters (328') for the channel (including equipment and patch cords).

BTW category 5e is the same, not sure where you got 350m from but that is incorrect
