If Gigabit full duplex needs all four pairs, as you say, then using it for voice also would be impossible - thanks for the info
"The data is transmitted over four copper pairs, eight bits at a time. First, eight bits of data are expanded into four 3-bit symbols through a non-trivial scrambling procedure based on a linear feedback shift register.." - for some reason I thought one of the pairs was redundant, however only two pairs can be used but it will be at a lower speed. I do have all four pairs connected though
Please elaborate about your 2x100Mbps down one cat5e cable setup.
