How far or the maximum length of UTP cable can connect an internet connection?
Some switches will boost the signal so that it can make it down another run of cable. But there are dedicated signal boosters that will do the same thing. Try to put the booster well before the 100m or 300ft mark though, maybe by at least 50-100 ft. That way you've got a strong signal to boost, instead of one that has almost attenuated to nothing.
Category 6 cable
When used for 10/100/1000BASE-T, the maximum allowed length of a Cat 6 cable is 100 meters or 328 feet.
the protocol that runs over UTP has a maximum length for performance and other technical reasons such as Ethernet Collision. if you need of a connection extending any further, you should place a hub/switch between two cables.
Hello, yes the maximum distance recommended according to the specs is 100 metres. You could extend it by connecting it to other hardware like switches, etc.
The maximum run for a cat. 5 or cat. 6 cable used at 10/100/1000 mbps is 100 metres. You may be able to use greater lengths, but you'll be exceeding the official specs.
