I’ve moved house and I’m setting up my system for the new layout. One end point DS will be quite a distance from the Roon core (nucleus) and my NAS, which are side-by-side.
Is there a maximum distance I can expect go with a single ethernet cable, before there’s quality issues (drop out or similar)? Are there factors that can influence that (e.g. type of cable)?
Would appreciate any advice.
The maximum length of a Cat 5, 5e, 6 etc cable between points, ie network switch to device is 100 metres, so the furtherest apart you can have them is 200 metres, ( Roon core -->switch/router–>DS)
Oh right, no problem then. My house is not that big, alas
Pay attention to the quality of the cable, min cat6 … and do not install close to electric cables …
Also keep it away from any co-ax or screened cables carrying RF or analog video. Ethernet can certainly interfere with the low level signals coming from aerials.
Right, will do. Thanks guys.
