Cat 5 and Cat 5e are discriptions of the wire. Therefore if you wanted to upgrade you would have to change the wiring. In a home use the increase in performance really wouldn't be of any advantage. Personally I don't feel even in a business performance that it is cost effectived to upgrade cost versus the performance gain is not worth it. If you had say cat 3 sure going to cat 5 would be well worth it. Stick with the cat 5 heck most computer equipment don't have the capability to use all the capacity of the cat 5
Yes, the e stands for enhanced. The Cat5e cable is just made to more stringent standards the the regular Cat5 cable.
You can use the Cat6 in place of the Cat5e but not the other way around. It is a higher rating than the Cat5e.
The "e" in Cat-5 stands for enhanced. A Cat-5 cable has more twists than a Cat-5 cable, meaning that there will be less crosstalk and interference.
UTP is unshielded. Cheaper. STP is shielded.. more expensive.
Any of our 50ft Cat5e Ethernet Patch cables will work great.
Use Category 5e cable, it is more slightly more enhanced than Category 5. If your internet download speed is 15+mbps , use Category 6.
Connect a standard Ethernet cable (RJ45 - CAT5E, you can get them at any electronics store) from your Xbox to your modem or router.
CAT6 natively supports 1Gbps and higher while for CAT5e it is a stretch. CAT6 operates at 250MHz while CAT5e does it at 100MHz. CAT6 does have reduced length compared to CAT5e but it has higher requirements for noise level and crosstalk. CAT5 is absolute.
100m or 328ft.
