HDHR5-4US: maximum length of LAN cable?

Post by chuckles67 » Sun Aug 18, 2019 10:32 pm

I'd like to try a 100 foot run of CAT5E LAN cable from a HDHR5-4US to my router switch. Has anyone tried this length of CAT5e (or CAT6) cable and does it work okay? Any guidelines for what the maximum recommended length might be?

IIRC, the max length is 100m (~330ft). Longer than that, and you need a repeater or some other device (like a switch).

Correct, ethernet specifies a max run of 100m.
