As far as the iPad is concern it would mostly be general documents, ebooks, music and photos while traveling. But for my PC work laptop I want to be able to read and write to my file server as if were a local drive also while travelling.

Really? My understanding is that only CAT6A can do 10Gbps up to 18m and CAT6E can go longer, anything else was limited to 1Gbps.
