Now that I've decided on Linksys WRT54GC for the router for my MacBook Pro, I started looking at ethernet cables (patch cables?). To ensure that the cables themselves won't be the network bottleneck (both at present and in the near future) and among other reasons, I've decided to go with the best quality patch cables I could find. Hence, category 6. When it comes to technical aspects of networking, I am about as savvy as a kindergarten child, albeit an extremely bright one at that. So it did take me several hours just to sort out the differences among patch cables, ethernet cables, snagless cables, cables with boots, crossover cables, ...etc. In the end, I decided that patch cables are what I need. But I could be wrong. If that's the case, then now would be a good time for you to let me know. Anyway, google search for category 6 patch cables generated lot of results. Category 6 patch cables vary in brands and prices. If I go with Belkin, then databazaar.com is the best place. However, Belkin cables are extremely pricey for a reason I don't understand. Is it just because of the name? Could it be the 50 micron layer of gold coating on electrical contacts? There are other vendors such as greatcables.com that offer category 6 cables at fraction of the Belkin's price. So I searched online for category 6 patch cable reviews. I couldn't find any. So this is where I need your help. I don't know how many of you have had experience with category 6 but what would be a really good brand and what should I avoid? Your inputs would be greatly appreciated.
