The main problem is an electro mechanical problem called cross talk where signals traveling in one direction in your cabling cause interference in the signals traveling in the opposite direction. Result is corruption in the signal which appears as packet loss on layer 2. At least that's my layman's understanding :) Typical copper network cabling has 8 ...

Cat 5 cable is good for gigabit speeds (100MHz) so your theoretical 150Mb isn't anywhere near overloading it. If you tried to push a signal down the cable that was too high a frequency, then the inductive and capacitative effects within it would cause the signal to be come increasingly attenuated (degraded). This causes errors and ultimately failure of the ...
