Ethernet cable

My V6 is connected by powerline adapters. My additional Tivo is not on the same electrical circuit so I propose to connect it by ethernet cable. What spec of cable should I use. looking on line there are a lot to choose from. The run will be about 8 metres.

Re: Ethernet cable

This should do just fine.  I use these Duronic Cat6a cables and never had a problem.
