What is a Cat6 cable?
A form of cable used in structured networking, category 6 (Cat6) cables boast an improvement in attainable speeds over Cat5 cables. Cat6 cables have a tighter unshielded twisted pair (UTP) arrangement with an internal divider, which further improves reduced signal noise and interference from other close proximity cables. A higher transmission frequency of 250MHz means that these cables are capable of up to 1000Mbps over a run of 100 metres.
A faster transfer speed of up to 10Gbps can be attained with these cables, but only at a reduced maximum length of 55 metres. Cat6 cables are backwards compatible with 10Base-T (10Mbps) and 100Base-TX (100Mbps) networks.

Do I need an Ethernet crossover cable?
An Ethernet crossover cable is typically used in networking to allow communication between two Ethernet devices of the same type. An example would be allowing two computers to create a local area network (LAN) for transferring files without the need of a network switch or internet router. Ethernet crossover cables have other uses, such as connecting two or more network switches together – which increases the number of devices supported on a single network.
For connecting devices such as games consoles or desktop computer systems to a router or a switch, a standard Ethernet patch cable is used.

Hello can I use this cable to attach my laptop to the internet please. Wireless does not work too well for certain tasks in my area.

Asked by: None
You would not use this cable for that, This is for PC to PC connections. You need a patch cable like the one in the link below and you simply clip one end into the router and the other into the laptop.
