I got my a cat 6, finally
I've had quite a few Cat 5 (Category 5 cable) and Cat 5e network cables at home, but I was rearranging my tiny office, and I needed another one.
When I bought the printer, I knew that I needed a network printer, and it really helped. Few days ago, I decided to move the laser printer to the kitchen (which is actually a coffee room) next room. The solution? Instead of using a short ethernet cable, I use a 10m ethernet cable which was connected to iMac originally.
So, I did not have a suitable length ethernet cable between the router (which is the new Time Capsule) and the iMac. I have a few 3-metre ones and one 1-metre cable, but 5-metre is what I need.
Solution? Easy, get a 5-metre ethernet cable.
I wanted to get a white ethernet cable, it turns out harder than I thought. Most of the ethernet cables are blue, some are available in black. Suddenly, I saw Cat 6 (Category 6 cable) in the shop. Hmm, I shall invest one I guess.
And yes, I have carefully labelled all my cables and cords with the labeller (Brother P-touch 1280).
So here you go, Don, I am poor.
