    Yeah they look the business.

    Definitely avoid CCA at all costs. If it looks cheap and doesn't state its construction, don't buy it.

    Re: Who makes good quality RJ45 Network sockets please?

    The TUK ones average £4-15 depending on where you buy them, Zak just paid about £18 for 12

    I know 3M are good but £111 for 8 wth!

    I would seriously consider going Cat6 rather than Cat5 if you've not bought anything yet. Cabling will probably be in your house for more than 20 years. We've been at 1 GbE for at least 15 years now. Price difference is tiny. Cat6 can support 10 GbE over short (40-55 meter max) lengths.

    I bought most of my stuff from the electrical counter. No issues.
    Only provisio with Cat 6 is watch out for the minimum bend radius. It's a lot bigger than cat5e so be careful you don't damage them or plan to run them anywhere with sharp turns.

    G0nZ0 has warned me about my new best friend..... the 5cm bend radius rules.

    Im gonna try it.

    He's found me some solid Cat6 cable and now I just have to man up and tell the missus how it's gonna be ......

    I might be living with my new TUK tombstones and 5cm bend radii in a shed with awesome internet speeds......

    If you can't it should still be ok for gigabit speeds, otherwise an oscillating multi tool can be handy under skirting boards to open up the gap to allow the radius.

    Cough - it’ll only ever be as fast as the slowest part of the link - your internet connection - but you know that

    I did run fibre to a friend’s ‘shed’ theoretically 10 Gb. He did get better speeds on his intranet though (but didn’t have anything that could max it above about 600Mb/s)

    true... but the plan is that I might put my home server under the stairs with the router... so having a quick link to the upstairs office is good.

    Besides.. my old house started at ADSL 6mb/s then went to ADSL2 at about 12mb/s then to Infinity 36mb and rapidly to over 60mbs.. that was in 12years.

    SO if I live here for 12 years or more I might need a good connection from lower to upper house ;-) / shed ? ;-)

    Re: Who makes good quality RJ45 Network sockets please?

    found a length of CAT 6 solid copper here at work to study.

    it's clever, isn't it? That quartered plastic core and the string to pull to cut the sheaf ... you don't know what you don't know

    great thread so far guys, thank you all :-)
