True, 100Mbps is achievable because of the quality of cable, but all 8 wires are used. Not just 4. 8)

You are correct as usual HJ. I was thinking of using the two phone lines to total eight wires. Remind me of my network theory class, what are the eight wires used for in fast ethernet?

The only other suggestion I can think of is home network cards that use regular phoneline instead of cat 5. Still limited to 10mbps, but it would look cleaner. It would be more expensive though, unless you can pick some up used somewhere.

The other pins allow for bi directional data transmission

I found a page with all the pin outs:

If you want the pin out in laymans terms for Cat5E using 568B it would be by as follows assuming you do it right and spend the few dollars for the correct cable:

Pin1 White/Orange
Pin2 Orange/White
Pin3 White/Green
Pin4 Blue/White
Pin5 White/Blue
Pin6 Green/White
Pin7 White/Brown
Pin8 Brown/White

Try to keep the twists in the cable as much as possible and make sure you crimp the heads using a good quality crimper and that the wires are inserted all the way in the head. If you want 568A for some reason just swap the colors used in pins 1,2,3 & 6. Do Not Strip The Wires.
