As far as I know, there is no final CAT 6 standard yet and the place I buy my network stuff from doesn't list them. To answer your question, search http://www.google.com/ with cat 6 rj-45. Larry

Larry,
If there is no final Cat 6 standard, how about a Cat 7 standard?

I see it listed at various places. Would you like to bring us up-to-speed on it? After poking around on the cryptic TIA web site I came to the conclusion that I just have not got the time to worry about it right now. Larry

there IS a cat6 standard, but it is only a proposed one. cat7 does not exist. by following the "proposed" standards, then there are only minor shielding differences between cat6 and cat7, but NOT worth the 300%-400% price hike.

A proposed standard is not a standard. It is a proposed standard. Larry
