Ethernet cable

Hi. I need to buy a longer ethernet cable to link my new EE/Bt Pro Youview box to my Internet hub.  I am a bit bamboozled by the amount of cables out there as there are so many! I have seen one on Amazon that I think would be ok; it says it's a 'Rhinocable Cat 6 High Speed Gigabit ethernet patch network cable'...would anybody be able to confirm that this would do the job please, as I am getting very confused... Many thanks!

Re: Ethernet cable

There are several that appear to meet your description all of which appear suitable. If you are going for a longer length I would avoid the slim ones.

Ok, I'll have a look and check the cable width too. Many thanks.

Re: Ethernet cable

Loads of cons out there.

I stick to Amazon Basics if I have to buy there. I get mine (or makes them) elsewhere but never buy the expensive ones.

Re: Ethernet cable

Whilst ethernet is generally preferred, the Pro Box was designed to run from 5GHz WiFI. So if you haven't already, it would be worth giving it a try it a try if your router isn't miles away. Annoyingly you have to physically unplug the cable first & pairing might take a few goes.

Re: Ethernet cable

The router is only about 4 metres away, so I think it's worth me giving it a try before I buy the cable...thank you!

Cat 6 or better. Patch (straight through) rather than crossover.

Rhinocables are competitively priced, and a UK company.
