I've had good experiences with 4cabling for short cables (<= 3m cat6).
But recently I got a few 20m cat5 cables.  They're noticably more
marginal - PCs take a few good seconds to get a link, whereas my
arduino ethernet shield can't hold onto its link when powered on.  The
link led comes on for a second, then off for a few seconds, then on
again, and so on until the arduino is reset, at which point it can
eventually manage to get a link.  No idea what the 20m cat6 is like,
but wish I had gotten one to test...
