Re: [802.3af] Category 6 cabling


I believe 100BASE TX is written to Category 5. The same I believe is true
for GigE. Cat 6 and 7 aren't written into either spec... so I don't know if
the IEEE has a charter to address this (them?) directly, but is likely
deemed 'out of scope' since a non-conformant infrastructure is being used
in either case...

I could be wrong here though
