Local cable installed a 120 foot cat5e cable from our router to our smart TV, but there was no connection, so I decided to terminate the cable again myself. I bought a crimper and some rj45 connectors. I terminated both ends and now receive a connection (before there was none at all) however when I run a speed test I don't receive speeds greater than 6 Mbps, which is odd because the other computers in the house, which are hardwired, receive above 60 Mbps consistently.
Am I crimping it wrong? Too tight? Perhaps the cable wasn't made to be used for such distances?
Cable says: ETL LISTED CAT5E UTP TIA-568-B RoHS COMPLIANT
Any help / advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I believe the order in the RJ45 connectors is: White orange, orange, white green, blue, white blue, green, white brown, brown.
