    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

    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

    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?
