I have purchased a 10G plenum Cat 6A cable by Elite.  The problem I have is regular Cat 6a 23 AWG plugs do not work.  The cable is still to thick.  I have found RJ45 connectors but they are shielded.  Can I use shielded RJ45 connectors with UTP?  If not, do you know where I can purchase connectors that will work?
