Re: Networking Ideas Questions for a Retro Build.

Are you planning to run cables from your basement to the old location?

If you are you can use the 110 patch panel you found and punch down your existing cable on the patch panel install the c4 clips then punch your feeder cables on top of them But remember you have a 100 meter length limit on cat 5.

Best bet would be just install a switch in the attic and run a up-link to the switch from the basement switch.

Thanks for the info.

I am not worried about distance as I am only going about 50FT total on each drop. So i can use a 110 Cat5e Block and use a C4 to cross connect it back to the patch panel downstairs.
Does that sound about right?

You got it. I have used this method before when moving closets and cabinets

Jacket93,

Thanks for the help and info.
One more question.

I was told that no matter what punch block I use I will have issues with crosstalk. Did you experience any issues in the past with your setups?

TIA!

If you keep the proper twist with the cables and have the insulation cut back right to the connectors you should not have a issue with crosstalk. Just sure you have the C4's punched down evenly or you will have issues.

Jacket93,

Does it matter which one goes on the bottom and which on the top?
I was thinking... Cat5e to the patch panel on the bottom and the C4 to the PC...

I would have your feed going to new closet on bottom and cable going to pc on top. So if you had to rerun a cable pc you can just pull it off the top of the c4

Jacket93,

That's exactly how I have it.
