I looked at the ZT60 Panasonic specifications and noticed the ethernet port is not specified as 100 or 1000 Mbps.  The manual also does not list speed of port.  A quick search under "Plasma flat panel displays" retuned no information.   I know my current cabling is not 5e capable while my new router does offer 1000 Mbps hard connections. Before I start rewiring can someone let me know if this re-wiring endeavor will improve streaming content from my router and my NAS device?   One other question is if I am hard connected should I shut off the wifi?  Currently wifi and hard connection are enabled.  

 

 

Thanks,

What does the wiring have to do with the devices? If you are going to rewire you do it with 5e or 6. If you have a device with both wired and wireless ports, you use the wired and disable the wireless one. If you are currently hard wired you will not see that much improvement UNLESS a device is doing multiple ethernet tasks at the same time.

I would like to know if the ethernet port on the ZT60 is a gigabit  port.  My current wiring will not support Gigabit speeds.  I do not want to rewire unless I know for sure the TV port is faster than 100Mbps.

It wouldn't matter in any case. If it was gigabit, it would auto-negotiate 100 or 10 mb. And the tv could not utilize the 1g bandwidth anyway.

Why do you think auto-negotiate will go down if my router has 1G port, new wiring is 1gG capable?

What do you mean by "go down"??? If the tv is 100/mb, the port will run at 100mb.

My initial question is to find out definitively what speed is the ethernet port on the ZT60 TV 100/mb or 1Gb.

From p27 of the manual, 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX. I wouldn't think, given the current state of consumer broadband, there would be any real need for gigabit speed to the display.
