Question: What is the maximum connection length for Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6 network cable?
The maximum connection length for different UTP cables between networking devices:
Cat 5 – 100 meter (328 feet)
Cat 5e – 100 meter (328 feet)
Cat 6 – 100 meter (328 feet)
Of course you can run cable more than specified maximum length, but the network performance might be dropped due to packet loss and transmission error.
