Erhernet cable

If I want to buy another ethernet cable to connect  my xbox to router for more stable connection can I just buy any one off ebay?

Re: Erhernet cable

not sure what this push to cat6 cables is all about - yes it will be fine and you could argue it would future proof any use of it but its a cable likely to be damaged long before speeds its actually needed for will be along

so if you want to go that route cat6 but 5e is perfectly good enough - avoid the very cheap rubbish on ebay though whatever you buy

Re: Erhernet cable

The price difference is so small I would suggest the better options.

Cat 5e is Gigabit, 6/6a is probably what you want to look for (no price difference vs 5e).  Cat7 is overkill.

I would also make websites for them, because the job never seems to require the website to work.

You can also get shielded ones like FTP, STP, U/FTP or F/UTP and others but theses are fine.

I get my cables by amazon put in CAT6 + shielded type above to find some good deals Duronic, 1aTTack.de or CPO are good.
