Q: Can I use category 3 cables with the HP ProCurve Switch 100/1000Base-T Transceiver?
No, only category 5 100-ohm UTP or STP cables are supported. In fact, for the most robust connections you should use cabling that complies with the Category 5E specifications, as described in Addendum 5 to the TIA-568-A standard (ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A-5).
