Cat 5e or Cat 6

Hi, I have just bought a laptop with Windows 10 pre installed and the wireless connection keeps dropping. [ I am 10 feet away from HH5 in the conservatory]

I never had or still do not have a issue with Windows 8 wireless using my wifes laptop dropping in the conservatory.

I have decided to run a ethernet cable from HH5 to conservatory through the kitchen.

I would like to use the best possible ethernet cable for no interference so is Cat 6 the better of the two ?

Re: Cat 5e or Cat 6

for a distance of 10' it won't make any difference
