i am using gigabit powerline adapters but the question is the same if i used premise wiring vs powerline.
my powerline adapters are gigabit on both ends of the connection (ie adapter in my room & adapter in room with LAN switch), so:
- if my cable from adapter to PC is cat5e, do i still get the max speed gigabit offers?
- what if cable from switch to its adapter is cat5e? switch does have a gigabit port but i am just using the rj45 port.
- & what if cable from switch to ISPs router is a cat5e?
basically i am trying to determine which, if any, cables i should upgrade to improve data speeds on the LAN. educate me to your like/patience! googling it gives me all kinds of mixed feedback so i remain confused.
