You do get a slightly faster connection with Ethernet over USB. This can range from 1% to 5%. The main advantage is not necessarily speed but stability. Ethernet is a much more stable connection. I highly recommend connecting via Ethernet. If your computer does not have an ethernet connection, you can purchase a card for around $20 and install it.
It doesn't matter when dealing with a residential broadband connection. USB is around 11mbps and your internet is anywhere up to 3mbps. Its all a matter of what hardware you have to utilize.
I prefer cat-5.
A CAT5 cable or standard network cable is what connects a cable modem to a wireless router and is what allows you to share your Internet connection with multiple computers on your network.
Plug an internet cord (Cat5 cable) into the console and register for Xbox Live.
Fiber-Optic (CAT5 or ethernet) cables are slightly thicker than a phone line. Coaxial cables are a single pin screw in connection. fiber optics can handle far more data, and a lot faster that a coaxial connection.
Twisted pair cable IS used for lan connection. CAT5 and CAT6 are twisted pair.
The maximum recommended length for a UTP Cat5 cable is 100 metres
A 50 foot CAT5 cable can purchased online from Amazon or Overstock for about $6.50 - $7. The price for a 50 foot CAT5 cable at Target is about $15 and $43 at RadioShack.
Cat5 is the standard.
It is cool
Twisted pair cables were invented by Alexander Graham Bell, but the name of the creator of the Cat5 twisted pair cable is unknown.
Cat6 is 250 MHz and cat5 is just 100.
another name for an ethernet cable is a cat5 or cat5e cable
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.
CAT5 and CAT6.
They are the same.
Yes, the e stands for enhanced. The Cat5e cable is just made to more stringent standards the the regular Cat5 cable.
CAT5 is an Ethernet cable standard defined by the Electronic Industries Association and Telecommunications Industry Association (commonly known as EIA/TIA). CAT5 is the 5th generation of twisted pair Ethernet cabling and the most popular of all twisted pair cables in use today. CAT5 cable contains four pairs of copper wire. CAT5 supports Fast (100 Mbps) Ethernet and comparable alternatives such as ATM. As with all other types of twisted pair EIA/TIA cabling, CAT5 cable runs are limited to a maximum recommended run rate of 100m (328 feet). Although CAT5 cable usually contains four pairs of copper wire, Fast Ethernet communications only utilize two pairs. A new specification for CAT5 cable, CAT5 enhanced (CAT5e), supports short-run Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) networking by utilizing all four wire pairs and is backward-compatible with ordinary CAT5. Twisted pair cable like CAT5 comes in two main varieties, solid and stranded. Solid CAT5 cable supports longer runs and works best in fixed wiring configurations like office buildings. Stranded CAT5 cable, on the other hand, is more pliable and better suited for shorter-distance, movable cabling such as on-the-fly "patch" cabling.
Cat5 cable is the standard cable for computer networking. The "RJ" in RJ15 stands for registered jack. This is the part at the end of a cable that can be used to connect them to computers, phones, etc.
your question is confusing. tv has lan connection? for internet? then it should hook up nicely to any router or network hub with cat5 network cable. (cord with what looks like big phone plugs)
Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6e can be used, u can always use a better cable than required, but not the other way around
You need to have LAN cable CAT5 at least. There is a lan port located on the modem. Using the cable connect the port with the port located on the router. The port on the router should a label (WAN, Internet and so on) stating that it's devoted for internet.
