im pretty sure you cant use a 5 on a 6 but you can a 6 on a 5


Cat6 cable works on Cat5 Network. However, Cat5 cable canít be used on Cat6 network since Cat6 network has more requirements on cabling performances and capabilities, which Cat5 cable can not reach.

Maybe the cat5e cable is bad, maybe it's loose, maybe the connections at the end are not correct, maybe the panel has some setting to ignore less than cat6, etc. There's a ton of things to look into.
