I'm just about to go to the store to get an ethernet cable but I'm not sure what type to buy - a CAT5 or a CAT6.  Please help!

Thank you!

im pretty dang sure it's Cat5, but im not positive. there's probably some website that will let you find out for sure.

Dont matter cat 5 and 6 uses the same technology. The only differens is that cat 6 can transport data much faster then the cat 5 but the xbox can only transport data at 100MB/s if im not mistaken. So i would go with a cat5 cable cuz they are much cheaper.

Believe it or not, just about any Ethernet cable with the right size of adapter will work.

Almost any type of Ethernet cable will work...

Yeah, That's true. I just plugged a random one I had and it works Perfectly.

lol they all the same... a cat6 is a thicker cable less flexible then cat5s and cat6 can run internet faster then cat5 BUT internet can't take average of it lol so think its truly better
