Going to buy a 100ft Ethernet cable today to tether my Apple Time Capsule to my newly built computer... little confused about Cat types.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Thank You!

Cat5e is all you need. Cat6 is rated for higher bandwidth, etc but Cat5e will easily handle Gigabit ethernet. If you are planning on buying a cable at a retail store, you may want to invest some research in finding a local computer store as they will probably be able to make you a cable at any length you need for less than half what you will pay at Best Buy, etc. You could save yourself $20 or $30.
