I am trying to stack some 3750 switches but the 3M cable I have won't reach one of my switches.  I know I can buy 5M cables on the Internet however i don't believe Cisco supports that cable length.  Is anyone using 5M cables successfully in a 3750 stack?

mhfa,
 Cisco does suppor the 5M stackwise cables. The cisco stackwise capability allows you to stack up to 9 switches which sometimes the 3M cable isnt' long enough. I'm currently using them on the 3750X's which work great.
