The worst thing I see is guys not knowing about the bend ratio on any of this data wire.

Take a piece of Cat 7 and have it make a really tight turn coming out of a top, or bottom, plate and you can reduce it to a nice low speed wire run since you have completely changed the relationship between the pairs. May as well tie a few knots in the wire.....

Ever see a bundle of cables passing over the edge of a beam, dimensional lumber with nice, crisp edges or a piece of bent sheet metal that was screwed to the framing?
I keep scraps of smurf tube, to pass the cables through or to add afterward, by cutting a slit and screwing it to the wood to ease the bend.
My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."

Cat5e can do gigabit up to 328. That is the spec.
If your not getting that at the switch or after it, i would suspect there is a bad cable.
You should use a tester for this.
I saw something like this last year. After looking at all of the obvious things first i tested the line and it came back with broken pairs in the cable and no easy way to fix it.

13 years ago- I thought it was 100 meters for 100Mbps but that might be 300 meters.
