My house has a 5 pair twisted pair copper wire running. The cable reads "Pony 0.6mm X 5 pairs." Currently, I have a 100TX switch and I'm getting a throughput of around 70mpbs.
I am considering upgrading to gigabit switches. Is there any way to figure out if it will connect at 1000base?
Can the testing be done with one gigabit PC and a gigabit router?
The pairs seem to have about 1 twist per cm. Does that make it closer to CAT 3 or 5?
Edit: I tried connecting using Gigabit equipment. I used one PC with a gigabit ethernet port and had a C9 Archer router connected at 700mpbs to a Surface Pro on the other end. Using Iperf, I'm getting speeds upto 340mbps. Does that mean the cable supports gigabit speeds?
