I bought a new 100 foot CMPLE cat6 500mhz grey cable.
Which of course was no good, my luck.
I did get a full refund including shipping
As soon as I got it it was overflowing its tiny box.
then I noticed the ends were melted.
Then I look at the 'gold' connectors and they look oddly tarnished
Then I plug it in and of course can only connect at 100, not at gigabit speeds.
I was wondering if it is worth it to put new ends on this and see if it can work at gigabit speeds?
I peeled back the cracked cover and do these wires look like it has enough twist?
What is a known good working cat 6 brand to buy?
