Hm .. great deal, was paying about 80p per meter before
#2
Just to confirm, because I'm not familiar with the patch cord terminology...

Can I use this cable to connect my desktop to my wireless ADSL modem/router at home, in order to get internet on my computer?

Or is this one of those cables to connect one router to another etc....
#3
Yes (computer to router).

Yes (computer to router).


Thanks for the answer! Pretty cheap I must say for 10m... and just what I was looking for :thumbsup:
#5
these are great - i use one to connect my 360 to the router which is upstairs, running the cable on the outside of the house. soooooo much better in connection terms, and cheaper than the 360 wireless adaptor!

yes although do you really that length of cable - shorter the better tbh.....my only concern is that it doesnt state whether its shielded....this is important if you want to avoid electrical interfence, etc eg from power cables

outside of the house, lol are you sure...doubt if itll survive long unless its in sleeving.....agree re: the xbox and wireless....i gave up 9 months ago with countless dropouts and rubbish throughput despite having one the best wireless n routers, dlink 655.....so now use the netgear homeplugs...been generally excellent and mega simple to setup.....obviously as usual dont get near the quoted throughput of 200mb/s - but get near 30-50mb/s.....wireless n doesnt come close - near 18mb/s (mind you wireless router isnt in the ideal place as behind a 1 foot brick wall lol

great price for gigabit ready cable, shielding is a point, however for the price, its brilliant!!!


hot from me, even though i make my own cables ;)
#10
If you need more than 10m, you can get a 50m coil here for £7.75 and the end connections are pennies, that way you can make your own cables any length you want. Good price for ready made though.

#13
I wouldnt buy anything from pre pay mania ever again.I ordered the Generic Clock Digital Photo Frame that was posted on here a few weeks ago and never received it.I contacted them several times last week but they never got back to me, luckily the item was only £6 but at the end of the day its £6 that shouldnt be in thier pockets.

It will last years. as long as your house if you tack a little Conduit over the top. Don't pay extra for External Cable. waste of money.
#16
I never have to buy cat5 always make my own from the left over cabling from the cablers :D

I have a cat5 cable as a temp link between two buildings 30m apart with no problems for two years.

i am forever slinging this stuff in the bin, the 300m boxes fall to bits in the back of the van, mind you the van is a tip:-D
#19
Just so I can get this right - I could use this to connect my Xbox 360 directly to my wireless router (the comp is upstairs - the router in the front room next to the modem), to acces the LIVE malarky? If so so do I need specific connectors with the wiring? Cheers for help

You might want to reconsider that :whistling: If you get a lightning storm overhead you might find yourself needing a new router and 360. I used to be a datacomms engineer and have replaced probably 2 dozen modems, routers, network card and PCs in my time because of natures go juice :roll:

Don't worry about it. It should go 100m without problems at 100Mbits/sec. Although it isn't shielded (screened), the signals are balanced and travel along twisted pairs, therefore having a high degree of interference rejection. Besides which, TCP/IP, unlike, say, HDMI, just retries if it gets errors; it will only reduce the data rate a bit, not corrupt the data.

I would like to know the quick code for that as well. A quick manual search showed results for 15m, 25m and even 30m but no 20m.

it ok.

I still remember i bought 100m from Amazon for £14.99, 2 years ago. 8-)
#38
I did a job about 6 months ago and managed to get a box of 305m for about £35, I had loads left after the job and every job I have done so far I have made my own up, works out very cheap, I bought the termination points in bulk 50 at a time, and I already had the crimping tool so it works out at about 14p per meter or £1.40 for 10 meters...
