Hi all,

Can I use cat 5e RJ-45 connectors and keystones with cat 6 cabling and still
be able to have the network get up to gigabit speeds?

I have attempted to dig up information on the internet and have found
nothing but contradicting information. Any information would be appreciated.

Have you tried posting in "comp.dcom.cabling"? That
is the most appropriate newsgroup for cabling questions.

CAT5 alone supports GIG connections, even without E/6. If you use 5e
keystone connectors, then you have a 5e connection with expensive cable.
If you use CAT6 keystones with 5e cable you have a 5e
installation/plant, but have nice keystones.

If you do CAT5 properly, you can run GIG without any issues.

Thanx, that's just what I was hoping somebody would say. Is there a physical
difference between the cat 5e and the 6 connectors? I know that the cat 6
cables have thicker copper but I haven't been able to find anything on the
connectors.
