If my cable modem works for 10 Base T cables, can I use a 100 Base T cable anyway, even if it won't increase speed?

Basically 10 Base t cables use two pair of standard cat 3 cabling or better ( cat 5). 100 Base tx uses two pairs of standard cat 5 or better ( type 1 stp ) as well. So the answer is yes. The difference is in the physical layer standards used by either media dependent sublayers.


Cheers !!

Yea, the type of cable doesnt matter, althought the speed will not increase.
