Yes, well, I don't want to replace the cabling, quite a bit of work thaty would be.

 

Are errors checked/corrected? I mean, if I get to 5GB instread of 10 due to error correction that'd be fine as well.

I looked at 10GBASE-T  as I too had existing (mix) of Cat5e/6 runs but after reading decided it was just as cheap and more reliable to go fibre.  The spec for 10GBASE-T Lengths is:

- Cat 6a : 100m

- Cat 6 : 55m

- Cat 5e : Not officially supported but some claim you will be fine for small runs but to check the error rates.

This is why I bought a spool of Cat6, the last time I needed cable.  Might as well go for the better stuff... and 55m is more than enough for my house. Especially as the network closet is dead center of the house, basically. 

 

Just need to get 10gig hardware.

Nope, it's on the backburner for now.

Tight on funds, and other issues (like getting my server stable...)
