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
