    Now, we just need other network hardware to support such speeds. Personally, i think wireless is the future, rather than fiber optics. I'm sure that they will eventually encorporate each other though. Good find phantazmm. :grinthumb

    :confused:
    I've used CAT6 cable in my home network for about six months now. I guess it's unofficial then?

    Normal, cheap, 100MBit 5-port hub. It's just the cables that are CAT6. I had some problems with CAT5 cabling, they didn't handle 100MBit at full speed but CAT6 ones do. Probably too much RFI in my room.
