Use regular cat6a cable.

Yes: a 30ga. cable is good enough for use as a very
short extension jumper--as you describe. In general,
slim cable may not meet full Ethernet standards, but
it may work for this. Dave

As Dave said it may work - I would try one to see. 30AWG wire will limit the current available for the UAP, which is why you need to test it to make sure - I occasionally use some jumpers with 26AWG wire but I would not use a long one. Frankly Cat6 cable is way overkill for an AC lite - I literally only use Cat5e cables for everything Gigabit unless it's a short 10GbaseT connection, and then I use Cat7 short (like under 5 foot) jumpers. IMHO Cat6/6e is a boondoggle from the cable industry to make more money by people changing out their perfectly adequate 5e structured cabling. The only place I can see using Cat6 would be a long run of 23AWG cable to increase the current handling, but I run 24AWG Cat5e right now for 802.3bt at 60+ watts and it works just fine...
Let us know how the testing goes.
