Hello, I am gowind to run a network drop using Cat 5E 350MHz CMR cable running from a guest house to the main house. The guest house has a Linksys router from which point i will run the Cat 5E around the outside of the house, drop down and burry in pvc pipe to main house, totaling roughly about 300 -325 feet. When i reach the main house I will plug into a Linksys switch to feed 2 Netgear WN802T Wireless N Access Points. From the Linksys switch I will have to go about 50ft to one Netgear AP and 30ft to the other Netgear AP. I know thats kind of reaching the max distance for Cat 5E cable. Do you think this will work or do I need another plan. Thanks for any help. Thegeek

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s not the total length of the run that counts. It’s the length of the cable between two devices. As long as the cable between the router in the guest house and the first network switch in the main house is under the limit you will be fine.
