Re: 470Ft Cable Run

said by whoaru99:

Maybe it's the plan, but perhaps not a bad idea to lay in a double or triple run of Cat6 in the trench while you're at it, just in case.

I suggested getting some bridge media converters and running fiber.

I would have to agree with tech guru. Burying ethernet cable, or any copper cable is not wise. You can buy preterminated fiber optic cabling relatively cheap, and a pair of media convertors. The media convertors are a tad on the pricey side, but it will keep lightning out of the system and your house.

That depends on which plan he plans to get. 30/4 a 100 base-fx pair would be fine which can be had for a fairly low price (starting around $30 each). BUT if he gets the 100/5 plan he will need a gigabit connection which costs a lot more ($55+ each)

NewEgg is probably the best place to get a pair.
