TowerTalk people know a lot and have opinions on even more, so I thought I'd
risk the following.
I need to run Ethernet "CAT5" (or better) wire on an outdoor wall. I have
PVC jacketed Belkin CAT5e cable "designed to meet advanced UTP
horizontal-cable applications". The box tells me some other things, like I
should wash my hands after handling, but it says nothing about interior vs
So what's the wisdom of using such cable on an exposed exterior
installation? Is there a better alternative that is readily available? I
see that Belden 7923A is "industrial" cable that should be better, but I
don't want to buy 1000 ft of it...
Tnx & 73, Martin
