Hi, I was looking to change my CAT5 cable I use to connect my 360. The one I am using I "borrowed" it from work. It was in bad condition when I got it and it has slowly fallen apart. I had a quick look at some cabling web sites and there are quite a few different types CAT5, CAT5e (which I believe is the newer version). I have also seen CAT6 which seems to have superseded CAT5 and is backward compatible but with higher specification regarding signal to noise etc. Then there is the crossover and straight wired. Basically, I need a cable about 5m long and would like to get a good quality cable so I can minimise and data loss/degredation. Is it better to go sheilded?. It might be over kill but I would rather spend £1 more (the cables are dirt cheap - even the high performance Belkin ones), and get a cable the is way to good for the job than get one that is working to its upper limits. Just realised I didn't post in the Hardware section - sorry. can the mods move it?.
