    Default 10baseT & 100baseTX

    Is this true?
    100 baseTx uses 2 pair of twisted wires, but actually has 8 single wires total?

    How many wires does 10baseT use?

    Thanks ums!

    Actually, it does mention it for 10baseT:

    Is similar to 10BaseT, except it requires Category 5 UTP or Category 1 STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cabling. Only uses 4 of the 8 wires like just like 10BaseT. The maximum data transfer rate is 100 Mb/s and the encoding type is 4B/5B coding.
    4 wires = 2 pairs

    Pretty much all of the 10/100 mbps ethernet standards use 2 pairs of wires. The only exception I can think of is 10Base4, which uses 4 pairs (8 wires total). I don't think 10Base4 is used much, if at all.
