Absolutely. If the cable test is reporting that the cable is too long, even though it is 5 meters, there is some impedance that is likely causing the signal through the wire to be delayed or corrupted. Would it be possible to run some tests using another cable or bypassing the switch?

Hi Justin, thanks for the reply.
I tried your suggestions but the problem persists.
I connected with a 10/100 switch, with the router, with a short cat5e and another cat6 cable but no luck.
I even connected the WHS pc directly with my client pc but I always get the same message:
Long Cable Detected
The cable attached to this port is longer than the maximum supported length of 100 meters.
Cable Length: 255 Meters
The Long Cable Detected issue you are seeing is a tool reporting issue and does not affect the network connection. A fix for that bug will be included in the version 15.2 software release.
The plan is for version 15.2 to be tested and ready for posting in Download Center in early May. The simplest way for you to get the update will be to run Intel® Driver Update Utility. Intel® Driver Update Utility will automatically identify and give you the opportunity to upgrade drivers for Intel devices on your computer.
