  • Can you get two pairs of 10/100 connections out of a four-pair Cat 5 cable?

    On a Cat 5 cable with four pairs I know that you can get 10/100 TX out of one pair which is the IEEE 802 standard. But can you also utilize the other two pairs for an additional 10/100 TX network drop? Will this work? Where is it stated that you cannot do this if it does work and someone is saying...

  • UTILIZE 4 PAIRS CAT 5 CABLE FOR 2 100TX DROPS

    I am trying to figure out if that I can legally run a CAT 5 cable and use all four pairs to utilize 2 ethernet 100tx drops. If so is does that deviate from the IEEE 802 standard. If this is possible do both drops still have good quality 10/100 tx network drops.
