category 5 or 5E?
hello, i have a question about the category 5 wiring. i don't know the difference between category 5 and 5E. What's the difference? Is the 350Mhz performance of a category 5E over a category 5 100Mhz wire noticable? Also, catgeory 5E 350Mhz has been called "the wave of the future" so does this mean that there are no network cards immediately available that supports 350Mhz? finally, which brand of wiring do you recommend? which brand is known for being the best of the best (for both category 5 and 5E)? Thank you for taking the time to read my email. =)|
