Hello
I am extending my network to install my new gaming pc and i was wondering which cable would be the best. I live in Perth Australia which still runs on copper cabling and my internet speeds from the isp website is 24000 kbps is cat 6 a waste on those internet speeds. So which cable should i get
thanks

Just use Cat5e, Cat5e still supports gigabit transfer speeds, thats all i use in my whole house, no problems at all.

Buy which ever you can get cheaper. For some reason cat6 cables sometimes sell for less than cat5e. Cat6 and cat5e cables both run 1g to 100meters.
