    but it's different to RJ45? or not? I'd give up, I'm a lost cause when it comes to hardware. Software is where it's at

    Cat5 refers to the grade and type of the actual wire. RJ45 is a misnomer - RJ45 is a completely different thing. The actual name for the connector on the end of an Ethernet cable is an 8P8C connector.

    Cat5 is used as networking cable, but that's just one of the uses. It can also be used to run RS-422, audio, video, both audio and video, and even buzzer circuits.

    They probably haven't drawn the winners yet :p:

    Be patient it will happen!

    We'll be sending emails out to the winners in the next 2 days! Survey only officially closed at the end of last week :yes:

    Ethernet can also carry power...

    that is if you only use 2 pairs for data, limiting the speed to 100Mbps

    I do have priorities, I'm just not keeping to them. I have an entire revision schedule but at the moment the laptop is more important :sexface: (you know what it's like when you want a new toy)
