Am I going to have any bandwidth issues plugging a 6a vs cat 7 (hypothetically) if I was to saturate the 10 Gbps connection with future internet plans/Nas backups?(computer has a 10 and 2.5 port.)

Nah. Cat6 is plenty for 10 gig over copper in a residential install.

And if I was to bridge the router/ modem would the throughput be limited to 10Gbps?

You're "limited" to 10 gig on that port regardless.

 

Whichever router you place downstream of that modem will be a limiting factor, as well.

And is that 10 up and down at the same time?

I believe so, since it's a full duplex link.

Just bought a home and figured I'd go ham with my networking setup.

 

Orange is where the networking box is setup.

 

Red in the office is the wall I'm thinking on putting my computer on the wall that's going to have ethernet ran to it. 

 

Red in the livingroom is tv and media setup which I'd also like a ethernet line ran to and I can probably use a splitter or a switch for everything to hardwire in.

 

The internet plan I'm going with is the 3Gbps fiber plan

 

The telus router/modem has 1x 10 Gbps port And 3x 1 Gbps ports

 

(I'm aware of download limits)

 

Am I going to have any bandwidth issues plugging a 6a vs cat 7 (hypothetically) if I was to saturate the 10 Gbps connection with future internet plans/Nas backups?(computer has a 10 and 2.5 port.)

 

And if I was to bridge the router/ modem would the throughput be limited to 10Gbps? And is that 10 up and down at the same time? Or if i download at 8 i would be restricted to upload at 2?094805754401e28eb40d7fad0bc8b7c9-o_a2.jpg.9489ac1665fb4e95bc9c22b4fda6a2f9.jpg

I sold my soul for ProSupport.

Cat 6 — 10 Gb (max. 55m), 1 Gb (max. 100m)

Cat 6a — 10 Gb (max. 100m)

Cat 7 — https://www.cablematters.com/Blog/Networking/what-is-cat7-and-why-you-don-t-need-it

 

So even just Cat 6 should be fine for most of your connections, you could go with 6a for peace of mind (or if it doesn't make much of a price difference)

Remember to either quote or @mention others, so they are notified of your reply

Perfect thanks, I'll keep that in mind.
