    Integrating Greater than Gigabit DOCSIS 3.1 into a 10gig Network?

    I've not had any issues at all. I'm using the adapter to connect to a Netgear Nighthawk CM2050V cable modem with Xfinity gigabit internet service. Because of overprovisioning, I'm getting 1400-1500 Mbps downstream and 42 Mbps upstream. I'm getting these numbers consistently, and I haven't...

    Integrating Greater than Gigabit DOCSIS 3.1 into a 10gig Network?

    I don't think the NIC is required to negotiate. My Mikrotik SFP-to-RJ45 adapter (Mikrotik S+RJ10) is connected to a UniFi Dream Machine Pro, which only supports 1/10G. So the adapter is negotiating to 2.5G. When I replaced it with a UniFi SFP-to-RJ45 adapter (which only does 1/10G), it would...

    Ethernet Cable Recommendations for Home

    Finally got the CAT6a and fiber optic line run. I dropped 3 lines + 1 fiber optic to my office. Getting it up was just as hard as getting the fish tape down. Probably would've been a ton easier had I pulled 1 line at a time. The head of the ethernet cables (that I did a great job taping but...

    Out of curiosity, if I had gone with shielded cable instead of unshielded, how does one ground the shielded cable? Do you ground at the cabinet with a shielded patch panel and simply run the ground wire to the grounding bus bar or is there more to it?

    Integrating Greater than Gigabit DOCSIS 3.1 into a 10gig Network?

    I have a Netgear CM2050V. Love it. I don't use the telephone jack on it. Only ordered the telephone version because the CM2000 was backordered. It has a 2.5G RJ45 port. Wish it had an SFP+ port.

    I also found where they ran CAT6 and terminated it (probably due to running out of cable and needing to "splice" it together). What did they terminate it with? 5e. :rolleyes: Not sure if it would actually prevent 2.5G connections to an access point.

    I was tempted to just run fiber, but when I took the wall plate off one of the current office pulls, the cable is damaged with exposed wire. I'm surprised I'm not getting a ton of issues from it. I'm going to pull a draw string with it in case I need to pull anything in the future.

    Ethernet Cable Recommendations for Home

    It took almost all day to get the fish tape down the conduit from the attic to the basement. It kept getting hung up between the corrugation and the wires. Tomorrow, I plan to pull 4 100' segments (I can trim it later if needed) plus 1 fiber optic. 3 runs to the office, one as a spare, and...

    That would involve changing out the NIC's and wouldn't allow PoE if I installed fiber.

    Ethernet Cable Recommendations for Home

    The 4 computers for 10G are from 50-150 feet (network cabinet/master switch is in the basement, going to offices and bedrooms on top floor). One of the AP's is 25 feet away, one is 75, one is about 100, and one is 150 feet on the other end of the house on the top story.

    Ethernet Cable Recommendations for Home

    I'm wanting to upgrade my ethernet cable from CAT6 to 6a. I currently have the following powered via PoE from a central switch (2.5G, may upgrade to 10G): 4 PoE access points, which I plan to upgrade to WiFi 6-compatible (probably 2.5G links) 6 PoE-powered switches, OK with them running 1G 2...
