Solved Are all types of ethernet cables the same? Tags: Amazon Ethernet Card Cable Networking Last response: November 24, 2012 7:45 AM in Networking Share BTWimkevin November 23, 2012 9:18:01 PM I bought a 100ft cat6 ethernet cable for amazon and I didn't work when I made several long ethernet cables. Now I'm looking at amazon again and I see "patch network ethernet" on some other cables. The one I bought did not have the word "patch" on it. What is the difference between http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-1000ft-In-Wall-550M... , http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Cat-6-Snagless-Patch-Cable... , http://www.amazon.com/100ft-Bulk-Ethernet-Cable-without... , and http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-SOLID-CABLE-24AWG-A7L704-1... ? Besides the lengths, what is different? Please help, thank you. More about : types ethernet cables Best solution Emerald November 24, 2012 1:11:28 AM the only difference is that the one that says Patch already has RJ45 connectors on each end and is ready to use. make sure you use the right color sequence when you crimp the RJ45 http://www.computerhope.com/jargon/num/586a586b.htm Share BTWimkevin November 24, 2012 7:44:26 AM Best answer selected by BTWimkevin. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
