    I'd be looking for around 100m of cat5e cable, as the house is on three stories and all computer harware is very spread out!

    CAT5e is dead cheap. Just run it round the edges of the flat and stuff. Or consider re-arranging your computer stuff, so everything is more centralized.

    Re: Linux Server (NAS)

    Is there not a flat-profile version of the cable?

    I'd like to be able to keep the NAS in the loft, so that would require some means of supplying power up there.

    Re: Linux Server (NAS)

    As I seem to be doing all the searching for you, here's one more on me (Google search terms were, surprisingly "flat cat5e cable" and I selected "pages from the UK")

    http://www.cdlmicro.co.uk/html/show_product.php/pid/490

    or

    http://www.cdlmicro.co.uk/html/show_product.php/pid/491

    No personal experience of buying from them though.

    Re: Linux Server (NAS)

    Flat ethernet cable is a really, bad idea. And calling it Cat5e is misleading advertising. It doesn't conform to Cat5e specifications if the conductors aren't twisted pairs.

    Interesting point, I don't care about using standard stuff as long as I can conceal this eaily under carpet, through doorways, up stairs and into the loft.

    CAT5e is twisted pair so you can't make it flat. Anyone who says they can isn't selling you CAT5e.

    It does. The twisting of the pairs provides electrical noise cancellation because of the way electrons propagate through a conductor. It also provides a level of shielding against crosstalk. The more noise in the environment there is, the greater the effect of frame corruption there is. TCP can usually handle this by re-requesting the same corrupt packets, but if the noise is bad enough it will give up and the socket will end up being closed.

    That said, in low noise environments it can still be used with little observable performance loss. But it's still *not* Cat5e.
