    Can anyone explain this? My old Cat5E lan cable was cutting out and could not be repaired. So I went and got a new CAT6 UTP 9106 cable. The guy showed me this cable and it looked very tough. He asked how much I needed and I replied about 80 meters. My old cable was 70 meters long. ( I think the guy just put the new ends on the cable as it was already rolled up and he came back in about 5 minutes with the new end installed. There was not enough time for him to unroll all that cable, measure it and roll it back up again. Once I ran the cable and secured it there was a good 8 meters or more extra.)

    I wanted to also run this cable inside flex tubing to further protect it from the elements. You may ask why the long length. I share the internet with my neighbor and that is how far it is from his modem to my house. Not a problem installing the cable things went fine and the cable was easy to push thru the flex tubing. I left the protective covers on while I ran the cable. Once everything was secured I hooked the lan cable up. Then proceeded to to a speedtest at speedtest.net. My download speed was what it was before. My upload speed was half the speed of what it was before. I did not change of the settings in the Bigfoot Killer Network Manager software . I did not change of the settings. Current settings are 1000 Mbps Full Duplex. My question is this - why did the upload speed drop in half? Before my upload speed was 20 Mbps and now it is only 9 Mbps. The modem is a fiber optic connection and is only 2 months old. I live in the country and to take the the cable out of the tubing and go back to the shop and shorten it is way too much work. Any suggestions anyone?

    Sharing your neighbors internet is almost certainly a violation of the terms and conditions of his ISP agreement so unfortunately we don't want to assist with this and I'm going to close this thread.
