What is an Ethernet Cable?

An Ethernet cable carries the broadband signals between your modem, router, computer and other wired internet-capable devices.

Cat 5e and Cat 6e (or higher) Ethernet cables are recommended for higher speeds. This designation is often stamped on the wire casing, along with other specifications. If you can't find a designation and your Ethernet cables are old, consider replacing them to ensure the cable is not hampering your Internet speed.
