Shielded patch cables if using on a POE adapter
Yeah, no. Unless you are shielding everything including patch panels, riser wire and keystones you are doing nothing. And while you're at it, slimrun 28ga wires work just as well as 24ga wires for POE patching up to 30w per port. (And are TIA approved as such)

Be aware that CCA cannot be qualified as CAT6 cable, so this is NOT CAT6 cable.

There is a huge problem with CCA cables being counterfeit.
Let's be honest, CCA is like counterfeit copper

It doesn't meet spec so they can't call it CAT6 or CAT5e.

Quote from wysiwyg1652 :
They are connected via the Nyquist theorem that defines the maximum bandwidth that can be encoded for a given sampling frequency
Saying 550mhz is less than gig Ethernet is nonsense. I'm not getting into physics, bandwidth and frequency are not the same thing. Period, end of story. Higher frequency allows for higher bandwidth but the statement I responded to was nonsensical.

Yeah, you are completely off. Frequency and bandwidth are two different things.
550mhz only? What if my PC is running at 3.5Ghz+? 😂

Would this be ok for running out of attic and under siding to a lower level? Thinking not.

If you are going outside at any point unless you know what you are doing you can get into trouble. Minimally you want wet rated and uv jacketed (cmx), but also if you go outside you have to bond that interface properly because if you have a near lightning strike you can destroy equipment and or electrocute people. You should also do a drip loop. People think behind siding is dry and free of uv, nope. Running conductive cable outside is dangerous.

As people have noted aluminum is almost never seen in home wiring anymore for a reason, it sucks as a proper conductor and oxidizes. Theoretically the copper clad reduces but cmon this is cheap and a good lightning strike will set the side of your house on fire too.

Cable is cheap enough, pls stay away from cca. And its not cat or ul certified either, and dont run poe over it.

This listing should be removed because it is misrepresented and false. No hit to poster, but cant believe amazon doesnt flag this.

Thanks so much for your response very helpful. I know it is far from dry under siding. It would just be powering my pixel Christmas light controller from October-Jan. I run the light show on its own network with an old router so not so worried about equipment damage. I'll do some searching based on what you recommended.

Thanks again

Quote from ouuwee :
If not CCA, what should I be looking out for?
For something where you're not doing power over ethernet (PoE), this would work just fine. Pore copper (non-CCA) carries the power further and more reliably. Most PoE switches will power something like a security camera up to 100 meters away. If your camera is close to that 100m mark, you may have issues and have to provide additional power at the camera. Using thisnin the house to wire a non PoE device like a TV, game system, computer, etc would be just fine.

I have cat6 but it's the stranded kind not solid core.. the verizon guy said it's a b*ch to crimp a connector on the cheap stuff.. they prefer solid core but this was better to wind through a drop ceiling with lots of twists and turns(without breaking a wire inside the pairs). I get about 880mbit pc to pc on data copy. Only have 300mbit internet so it's not a deal breaker.

side question since there seem to be some knowledgeable people here.......

I need an outdoor ethernet cable. Will run through conduit as much as possible, but there will be a few areas where it will be run through siding instead. What do you recommend?

Certainly glad to see a number of users correctly chiming in on the specific challenges around calling any cable built around copper clad aluminum an ethernet patch cable. The last biggest challenge in the industry was around non-standard (invariably thinner) gauges. Lately CCA has become the scourge (with questionable manufacturers trying to save a penny at scale). This may likely get worse in the retail space for some time as CCA is getting widely recognized as a problem in data centers (so the supply will be shifted).

Glad to know the slickdeals community is on this one!

Good luck!
Jon
