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.

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?
