I have phone 8 wire cable, shielded, with no pairs (wires go along to each other, no twisting).
I wonder if I can use this cable for wiring an Ethernet network?
Wires in the cable are in the following colors:
white green blue red brown grey orange yellow
I presume the problem with this cable is because the wires are not pair twisted and that's why to many interferences happen. Am I right?
I have done some tests. I have connected very short cable (cca. 0,5m) and the network works fine at 1Gbps. I think the performance would dramatically decrease with the length of this cable, as I saw with 15m cable that is not working, router just blinking (as it try to establish the connection).
