Posted 30th Sep
Any recommendations on where to get some Ethernet from? Would need the connectors and a crimping tool but am trying to use Amazon less frequently so thought I'd ask for a recommendation here

thanks

Do you need multiple conns or just a 50 mtr cable with conns already fitted?
Toolstation , screwfix sell it
Thanks you all kindly
Forget CAT5 as it only has to be rated to perform at 100 Mbps.
eBay personally

probably enough for one camera tho?
The difference of price for 50m probably only £5...

Maybe, depends on the length of the run and the camera resolution and frame rate.

The price difference going from CAT5 to CAT5e or even CAT6 isn't that great, CAT6 is probably overkill for your needs
