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 !!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
