The rule of thumb is 15m (or 50ft) before you start to loose line
rate. The best way to go is a DB-9 to RJ45 adapter. Use a straight
ethernet cable and do all the pinouts on the adapter
This says the same while using high quality cable.
also I guess Tx,RX should be on the same pair of cables inside the cat
Just like the Ethernet
1 2 3 6 each two in a pair.
If we did not do it like that, we start to loose rate after 25m on regular
I have been told that twists do some thing to reduce resistance!
