Are rj45 connectors the same for Cat5 and Cat6?
The connectors (technically called “8P8C”) are the same for Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a, and Cat7. The cables themselves differ in frequency, shielding, cross-talk, and their consequent maximum signaling rate, but their pinouts are all compatible with an 8P8C/RJ-45 connector, and the jacket colors should also be similar.
Does Ethernet wall jack slow speed?
An Ethernet cable may slow your connection if it’s the wrong type or damaged. For example, you shouldn’t use a CAT 5 cable for an internet connection faster than 100 Mbps. And a damaged cable will slow your connection, as will an Ethernet switch box that’s going bad.
Can Cat5 connect to Cat6?
Things You Need to Know: They can be plugged in to the same ports. Therefore, Cat6 cable works on Cat5 Network. However, Cat5 cable can’t be used on Cat6 network since Cat6 network has more requirements on cabling performances and capabilities, which Cat5 cable can not reach.
