'... cut the run in half.'
nope, unless I built a birdhouse or something to house the switch
again, im not looking for workarounds or suggestions, just looking for someone
to say 'hey I ran cat5 329+ feet and it worked OK' or 'I ran 327' and it died.'
to the other suggestion I got off list (fiber) the last fiber run I dealt with cost
$2,000 and it sits idle bc
1.) the cat6 run next to it works beautifully
2.) the SFPs and the patch cables/interconnects to complete the fiber cost
more than the cat6 cable itself.
