Cobra Posted December 15, 2005 CID Report Share Posted December 15, 2005 Hey, guys, some of you may remember me. I've been inactive here since late August I think, but lately I just haven't had the same amount of time I used to devote to forums, here or otherwise. Anyways, I need a little advice on what CAT5 cables I should buy to finally get my PS2 online. I don't really know much about Ethernet connections and whatnot, but I figured that since I'm really only going to use this for online play, I don't need top-of-the-line cables, just some good, cheap, reliable ones. I picked out one from PriceGrabber that looks promising, but I knew that with my limited knowledge, I should probably get a second opinion, so I decided to ask you guys. The cord's probably a bit long (my estimations would lead me to believe that I only need like 45 feet), but having a little extra cord can't hurt. I'll post the specs here for easier viewing: Cable Length - 75ft Number of Connectors - 2 # Connector Details: 1 x RJ-45 Male - Network 1 x RJ-45 Male - Network # Connectors: 1 x RJ-45 1 x RJ-45 Bandwidth - > 350MHz Grade/Rating/Specifics - 4-pair 24 AWG stranded copper wires, 50-micron gold plated connectors Conductor - Copper Jacket - PVC And it comes with a lifetime warranty (which is kinda funny since it's just a $15 cable, nothing special), so I suppose that's nice. Anyways, should I look for something better (mind you, this is just for PS2 online) or go with that? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
