    Do other computters work on that cable?
    Does the mac work on other cables?
    Does networking work on the Mac at all?

    this cable has worked on my laptop and the mac does have internet i'm on it right now but it's wireless and isn't as fast as i'd like it to be.

    Post a little more info please.

    Kind of mac and what are you trying to do?

    DSL/Cable modem directly to Mac?

    DSL/Cable modem to router?

    Double check inside the ports of mac and cable box that none of the wires are bent.

    Not enough info to help:)

    I doubt you'll see a difference with the internet. Wireless is probably faster than whatever connection to the internet you have.

    Try connecting the mac straight to the router. With the amount of info you've given this is purely guess work.
