Explanation on the standards of 100base-T

100Base-TX uses two pair of CAT-5 (Category 5) unshielded twisted pair cabling with 100-ohm impedance. It supports both 100Mb/s transmission rate for half-duplex technologies and full-duplex mode.it must have a maximum segment length of 100 meters. It uses RJ-45 style connector jack with 8-pins for UTP cabling and 9-pin D-type for STP cabling.

100Base-T4 uses four pairs of Cat-3 (Category 3 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling with an impedance rating of 100-ohm. It also have a maximum segment length of 100 meters and also uses 8-pin RJ-45 style modular jack connector. 100Base-T4 has a transmission rate of 100Mb/s half-duplex mode. It doesn't support full-duplex technologies.
 
The only difference between 100Base-T4 and 100Base-T2 is that 100Base-T2 supports full duplex mode and uses only 2 pairs of CAT-3 UTP cabling.
