Cat5, Cat5e, and Cat6 all do 100m (328ft)
10Base2 (Thin Coax) does 185m
10Base5(Thick Coax) does 500m

These distances are from nic to switch, and switch to switch.

There are two ways of wiring up cat5 cables to reduce interference:

green-white, green, orange-white, blue, blue-white, orange, brown-white, brown (T-568A wiring)

or

orange-white, orange, green-white, blue, blue-white, green, brown-white, brown (T-568B wiring)

This is when you look at the connector with the contacts facing towards you and pointing upwards.

Make sure that you follow one of those 2 standards. If you don't, you will run into something called "split pairs".

In case you were wondering, you can make a crossover cable by making one end 568a, and the other end 568b.

Let's hope you don't need it, but there is a reason for plenum grade cabling. during a fire, normal cabling that may be in walls metls and gives off deadly poisonous gas. If you're running those cables in your ceiling, or walls, you might consider the additional upcharge of plenum grade cabling, and hope you'll never need it.
