Silly question re internet cable.

    Morning All,

    I'm after a new cable that connects the internet from my virgin box to my laptop. Is it called an ethernet cable?

    I know it's really obvious!



    Yes it is called an Ethernet Cable. Sometimes called a Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable. Cat 6 can cope with faster speeds - but Cat 5 is suitable for the majority of routers.

    The Plugs/connectors on the ends of the cable are known as RJ-45 plugs.

    Hope this helps.

    Yep, that's the puppy

    Dont be talked into paying high prices for a 'special' cable, a 5m cat 5 should not be more than a few quid
