Hi Folks,

I am looking for a long network cable - somewhere around maybe 150 feet...? Does anyone have one to sell? Are any of you set up to make a cable that length?

Thanks!

If you go to Sonic Northern you can get one made. I usually find that the max length out there is 100 ft.
Go with Cat 6, it may be more expensive but it will allow for future bandwidth expansion.

Cat5 works up to 328 feet or 100 meters. If you can't find anyone to make you one let me know, I have a box of cat5 and ends.

I think I might have read that a local pawn shop on Queen street carries 100 foot cables for a decent price - is this true? Which store would it be? Sorry - just moved back to the Sault, and am not aware of any of the local pawn shops. After measuring, I realized I do not need 150 feet as mentioned above, just 100 feet.

Any more suggestions?

Thanks everyone.

Thanks Duffy - what is the name of the pawn shop? I want to look up the address. Can you tell me a store which it is near?

Thanks!

Disappointingly, that pawnshop is out of cables (which according to the gentleman on the phone sells for around $15 for 100 feet - wow!), and will not have any more in for a few weeks at least.

Any other very reasonably priced local places to get my hands on 100 feet of network cable?

Clockwork Computers is the only other place I know that sells the cables like that. If I were you, iI'd contact Shawn. He says he has a hole box full of CAT5 cable. I imagine it'd be reasonably priced too. :) Good Luck =)

I purchase all my bulk 1000ft cable boxes and other network gear from Monoprice

1000ft boxes of Cat5e are about $78 each plus shipping and Cat6 1000ft boxes are around $115 plus shipping. I usually get them shipped to Pak N, ship or wiers across the river. Network cabling has gone up as the last box I got 2 years ago was around $50 for Cat5e...
