Ethernet Cable Help

I need to get a 100ft Ethernet indoor (non-plenum) cable with connectors on both ends.

I have seen such cables on the net for around $10 or much more.

Are the $10 cables any good? If so where is a good place to buy?

For 10ft, find whatever you can that's cheapest. Either it will work or it won't.

If you don't mind mail order and waiting a couple of days:

I buy my cables from them, audio, video, you name it. Not a bad one yet.

Did you order a cable yet? I have a spool of cat5e in my garage and could make one for you - free of charge. I have enjoyed your blog for many months, since I first followed a link from instapundit. \

As you are undoubtedly aware, it is against code in most areas to penetrate walls and ceilings with general purpose (non-plenum) cable, due to the toxic fumes that the sheath makes when it burns.

Just let me know if you still need one.

matthew,

Thank you!

And yes I could still use a cable. I live in an apartment and plan to run it around the edges of the walls so there would be no code violations.

and I'll let you know where to send it. I have a handicapped son and this will just thrill him as I'm informed by my wife that Christmas has zeroed out our meager spare cash.

Bless you,

Simon
