Router question, please help

I bought a new gaming PC a few months ago and have been relying on a wifi USB adapter to connect to a network. It sucks... There is a lot of signal interference between my PC and the router and I can't move it anywhere else. So I was thinking of buying a new router and using wired connection instead of wifi, so my question is do I have to just connect my PC to a new router via cat6 cable and that's it I get better internet connection or is there more to the process? The router I'm getting is a Linksys n900 EA4500. Help, I can't download mods for my skyrim game without fast internet!

  1. Does your router now not have ethernet ports in the back? But to answer your question, yes, that is all you would need to do :)
  2. Best answer
    +2 what's your current router? (don't think I've ever seen one that didn't have at least one (1) ethernet port on the back)

    NOTE: you don't need Cat 6 cost more and only need for 10Gb ethernet...

    Just get Cat 5e..............

    NOTE: if you only have one ethernet port and need a second, we can suggest JUST a ethernet switch, way cheaper than a new router....
