I've found it myself: Ribbon cables are standardized by the AWG norm (American Wire Gauge). You can measure your cable with THIS table.

As long as the pin outs are the same(no crossovers or combinations) and the connectors fit, there shouldn't be any problems.

After playing around with proper cables and removing the insulation off the Ebay ones, I came to the realisation that the cheap cables had no foil or wire shielding. This also resulted in the case of the connector not being grounded. Replacement with another cable with sufficient shielding and proper grounding resolved all issues.

The most logical explanation would be that there's 1 pin interrupted (4,5,7 or 8). that would cause the cable to work in 100Mb-mode but not in gigabit mode. Check into thins before anything else.

The problem with the length and bitrate is closely related to the way how bits are represented. The following description is valid for basic amplitude modulation that applies to your proposal of "sending bits through a cable". As @sawdust points out in the comment below, modern networks do things rather differently [1]. Ones and zeros are expressed by ...

There certainly is a maximum transfer of information rate for any given wire. I seem to remember there used to be a well respected formula for calculating it but I suspect is has been overtaken by newer information theories because I can't find it. The factors though are many so it isn't at all easy - probably not possible - certainly not for me!! To work ...

Standard Ethernet cable outside: not on the long term. It will work, but after a while the coating will degrade due to weather patters or in-trench conditions. Then the coating of the wires and then they will short out. Exterior cable should be used in such cases (it's different from the standard one because it has special coating). The distance from power ...

Cat 5 and cat 6 cables can be protected with network isolators like the EN-70HD or the EN 60KDS from EmoSystems.com. These include medical grade isolation transformers good up to 8KV, whereas normal enamel coated transformers are prone to flashover during high voltage events. These devices also have TVS diodes integrated into the enclosure to suppress high ...

I did some digging and found some useful information in a review on Amazon. As you suspected, there is no analog/digital conversion hardware in the cable, the RCA lines are tied directly to the USB pins. The reviewer says that he disassembled a cable and found this pinout: USB Ground and USB Data- -> Ground of all three RCA connectors USB Data+ -> Left ...

hook a rca camera to the usb cable and you are now able to use any camera as a video conference room camera. No driver needed. Most conference calls are able to be recorded thru the website you are using for the call. You are correct! It will not work for recording, unless you are using some other program that allows you to delicate this camera for use ...

Yes they really are. I have one such cable and it works well. Twenty meters of untwisted copper wires simply won't be able to work at 100Mbit/s.

windows asks your controller what kind of device it is and the device doesnt answer the question. it often is about cable or connection.
