    Got some network cable off a well known online auction site the other day and am about to run it round the house. It was advertised as cat5e which is what i want. On closer inspection of the actual cable it says "Enhanced CAT5 UTP 350MHz verified" Now does this mean that I have got CAT5 or CAT5e?? :confused:

    Phew! :cool:
    I was kinda hoping that enhanced CAT5 was CAT5e. Feeling a bit happier now. Don't you just hate that 'I think I've been ripped off' feeling in the pit of your stomach??
