I'm wiring my home with cat 6 cable to future proof (already purchased), and have a few questions before I purchase all the small things.
- I didn't realize the keystones coupling jacks also came in cat5 or 6 versions. Are the cat6 keystones necessary or a marketing ploy?
- I need one room with 4 Ethernet ports. Am I able to run two wires and split the pairs to 4 different ports (sorry if wrong terminology). If I can, will I still be taking full advantage of cat6 gigabit
- I have one room already wired with Cat5e. If i plug that wire into my gigabit switch, will everything on the network reduce to cat5e speeds even if the device is gigabit?
