    I am using a D-Link DIR-655 router on a Windows Home Server network.

    When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

    The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

    Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

    The WHS box needs to be downstairs.
