I want to buy a longer data cable for my u verse

Hi,

 

I need to buy a longer data cable for my u-verse router (from what I read on it, it is the 3801HGV model. I got it a few months ago).

I would like to make sure that I but the right cable on the internet.

 

So my question is: what are the specifications of this data cable? In other words, what should I look for on e-Bay or Amazon?

 

This is what I can read on the green data cable that came with the router:

Systems Broadband ULH     ETL VERFIED TO TIA/EIA 568-B . 2 CATEGORY 5E UTP 2PAIRS 350 MHz E302757 (UL) TYPE CM75°C BROADBAND PRODUCTS 1366FT All Systems Broadband ULH

 

Thank you so much for your help!

You'll want to get a cat-5e cable. The best place to find one fir a great price is Monoprice.com. I've included a link to all of their cat 5e network cables. They range in length from 0.5 to 100 feet.

He's talking about the green data cable that connects for the VDSL signal, not a network cable. The green data cable is Cat5e, but uses RJ11 connectors, not RJ45.

CablesOnDemand makes a compatible cable:
