Where can I get a 25' yellow Ethernet cable?

The cable that came with the 2Wire gateway is too short. I need a longer replacement at least 25'.

Thanks,

Martie

Re: Where can I get a 25' yellow Ethernet cable?

The cable is labeled:

AWM 2835  24 AWG/4PR  60 C  30V  E311387

AWG/4PR  II  A 60 C   30V FT2  UTP ETL 

Verified to ANSI/TIA - 56813.2  CAT 5 YSC

 

Which specs do I use to search for the cable?

I really appreciate your help.

 

Thanks,

Martie

Re: Where can I get a 25' yellow Ethernet cable?

I went order the CAT5e cable from monoprice.com as suggested and the rep said the following via chat:

 

"A cable like PID 2316 (CAT6) would work great.

The difference between Cat 5 and Cat 6 is in the bandwith ratings. Cat 5e has a higher bandwidth than Cat 5. Cat 6 has a higher rating than Cat 5e. Higher bandwidths means you can transfer greater amounts of data at higher rates.Cat 6 acheives higher bandwidth by reducing cross talk between the twisted pairs with the aid of a plastic spleen runing through the length of the cable.They all use RJ45 connectors and are usually interchangeable depending on the bandwidth requirements of your devices."

 

Yikes, should I just stick to the CAT5e?

MartieBr - For U-verse application you will not see any difference in quality of signal. Buy, whichever one you want. The prices arre probably pretty close. Any of them will work fine.
