Exactly how and where did you connect the shields on each end? What 
equipment (makes/models) were you connecting? 

The biggest problem with using shielded CAT5 for this purpose is 
that for much of the equipment we are connecting, it isn't easy to 
find a suitable connection point for a cable shield (i.e., a 
reference plane or the shielding enclosure). Without those 
connections, a cable shield won't be effective.
