 While talking about star topology, its worth noting that both [10BaseT] and [100BaseT] over an unswitched network might present a star topology physically, they are actually a bus topology as far as ethernet is concerned - all traffic is rebroadcast to all other nodes. If they are used in a SwitchedEthernet then they are a star topology. 
 100BaseT can either be run over Category 3 [UTP] cable by using all four pairs, or much more commonly over Category 5 cable, only using two pairs. (The infamous "Cat-5"). 
-Q: ''What does full duplex 100BaseT classify as?''%%%  
-A: [ 100BaseTX]  
+100BaseT like 10BaseT will run in Full Duplex (when either found in auto setting or hard set) when connected back-to-back (when using a full MDI to MDI-X cross-over cable) or connected to a switch port.  
+100BaseTX requires a minimum of a Category 5 Cable installed as it uses two pairs, one pair for Transmit, and one pair for receive. 100BaseT4 requires a minimum of Category 3 Cable installed as it use four pairs. two pairs for trasmit, and two pairs for receive.
