Category of Ethernet Extension cable please?

Hi. I need to buy an Ethernet extension cable so there is a longer distance between my bridge and the router. On Amazon it shows several extension cables marked as category 6 or 7. Does it matter what category of cable I buy? Thanks!


  • Either of those categories would be fine. Cat 5 is also OK

  • Anything above cat5e (old) and below cat7 (overkill). But the bridge should be fine with a twisted coat hanger to be honest.
