We have 30mbps wifi @ our house and use a Netgear Nighthawk router.
Its nice. But I've noticed with my laptop I get fast speeds and internet browsing with the cable hooked up to my wife.
I play a lot of Magic The Gathering online and like to sit in my living room on the recliner when I play.
But wifi speeds def. slow my game down.
When I hook a ethernet cable to my laptop the speed of the game increases 5x.
So Im looking to get a long ethernet cable to run from my router to my laptop when Im sitting in the living room.
On newegg you can get all lengths for relatively cheap.
My question is this: Are all ethernet cables gonna give me the same speed? Or will a cheap ethernet cable slow down my speed from the router to my laptop compared to a higher quality cable?
