So I went to CA and got that readynas and some HDDs as well as ordering a 20m cat6 cable to go with it, I've gotten home to discover they've given me a Cat5 instead (though charging me for Cat5). I need to get this thing installed using some cable covers today and they close at 3. Is it worth taking it back or will I find no difference anyway? both my router and the readynas are gigabit.

No difference, I've got a readynas NV+ and it barely even makes 200 megabits / second when transferring stuff. They're a slow POS.

e: Actually maybe over 20m it might matter, my NV+ is connected to the switch through a 30cm patch cable cat5e I think

yeah cat6 isn't going to make a difference when you're not going to be able to transfer data anywhere near the 1000 megabit connection limit
your readynas probably does 200~mbit per second, the cable is capable of 1000mbit
if you had a fully sick nas with more drives it might come close, but even then it would hardly be worth the drive back

There is about two fifths of f*** all difference you will notice the way in which you are implementing it

Only real difference is a separation barrier between the pairs and some tighter twists to reduce cross talk

Cat5 is fine

It will be cat5-E anyway, and that doest realy have any issues doing gigabit connections, expecially over 20mtrs.

CAT6 just means you dont have to worry about interference from electrical etc over longer runs.

Minor correction viper the tighter twists are to reduce cross talk among the pairs, interference issues you would would use stp cat5/6 instead of utp

I highly approve of this euphemism, though I like to say five eights of f*** all.

my dad always used "three fifths of five eighths of f*** all"

also take the cable back, although there's bugger all difference speed wise, you asked for cat6, paid for cat6 and you got 5...

I think I was at the counter beside you, I was buying a bunch of TV Tuner gear for my media centre.
I can confirm you did specifically ask for Cat6 as well.

Oh and I agree with the comments, you will not notice a difference.

That's worthy of a spotted thread Phase.


I've hooked it all up and indeed noticed f***all difference. I had to put it in a cable cover and stick it to the wall, I needed to know whether it was worth taking back before I did that otherwise I'd have to take it all out again.
