      Ethernet Extended Connection Solution

      Here is a simple, quick and reasonably priced solution to get your Ethernet into another room close by without the extra cost of the cable/satellite service technician coming and charging you an arm and a leg. The Insignia™ - 50' Cat-6 Network Cable will do the trick and extend your Ethernet connection where you want or need it. The 50 foot cable best fit my needs with some flexibility as to the uses. With several options to run the cable either above window frames or (if you dare brave the cold and dirty enviroment) underneath the house into the room where you need it. Eiher way and I opted for the first, tacked into place with cable fasteners out of sight, it opened up our den to devices that require ethernet to funtion taking out of an already gadget cluttered living room. So far no issues and everything I have connected works great! A wise, cost affective solution and another "Honey Do" off my long list....

      I bought the new Acer Aspire Z 23" screen desktop computer from Best Buy, and rather than buy an extra printer, I thought, why not just purchase a network cable and keep my printer and old computer set up the way they are? I simply added another option. When I want to print from my old computer, I have it all set up under my desk, but when I want to use my new computer, which is on top of the desk beside the printer, instead of diving under the desk to locate the usb port in the dark, I just hook the one on the desk into the back of the printer and unplug the old one while I am using it. Some say, why not use a wireless network? Call me a cave dweller, but I just like the fact that nobody can steal signals through my cables, since we are always being warned about wireless hacking. So, for something this simple, maybe I could have gone wireless, but rather than go through all of the hassle of setting up two computer wireless networks, for now it is the Neanderthal approach - and I trust the quality of the Insignia cable.

      There's not a whole lot to say about cords, cables, or connections. I bought this one to do a certain job and it works just fine. I will say this though...I asked one of the employees at Best Buy why the light gray cord was more expensive than the dark gray cord. He said the dark gray network cable was an older model. The lighter gray network cable was a newer model. He said they both work just fine, so there was nothing to worry about if I decided to buy the darker gray Network cable. But, I got the newer model, light gray, Network cable, just for my own piece of mind. I had just spent over $1,000 on a new computer. So I figured that a few extra dollars for a more up to date cable would be the best way to make sure that everything was totally compatible. And, I'm happy with my decision.

      Optimal Signal Strength Ethernet Cable

      I bought this cable to connect a second router to my Xfinity DOCSIS 3.0 Residential Gateway + Router. Comcast is the Internet carrier in our area and the Xfinity Router had to be connected to the cable coming in to the house in the finished basement level. The signal would not reach the upper main level of the house, (could not access Internet) The cable was the perfect length to run run outside a window in the basement, up and across the exterior of the house, and in through a window in the main level, where I connected an old Cisco router. The cable is very durable and has held up perfectly to the outside elements. It was very easy to conceal, had no kinks or creases in it and now our family can enjoy fast surfing via cable or Wi-Fi throughout our entire house.

      I purchased my dream 75 inch 4K TV at Best Buy, and didn’t realize my world would now consist of a 4K DVR, 4K Apple, and a new sound system to boot! It was much like purchasing a car, and then getting barraged by all the accessories you need to make it special. Well, I was in a ‘go big, or go home’ mode, and I ran with it. No issues, until I was handed HDMI cables that were in the hundred dollar range. Rather than ‘go home,’ I elected to go with these lower cost cables. Needless to say, the quality of the picture was awesome, and I really doubt that purchasing the high end cables would have made a significant difference. Great deal!

      This thing is absolutely amazing!!! You get it home, attach it - on both ends - and it serves it purpose PERFECTLY. I couldn't be happier with any purchase EVER. Sure, I could have gotten a longer one, and maybe this would have allowed me a little more freedom of setup, but I found I didn't need that. I spent hours and hours and weeks and weeks scouring the internet to determine what EXACTLY was needed. I discovered it was this network cable. When the guy at Best Buy pointed it out to me, I couldn't believe I had found the answer to everything I had been searching for. If you make only one purchase this year, it should be this Network Cable.

      I bought the cable in an effort to connect my computer to the internet for a tech at HP to work on restoring wireless access through the WI FI section of the router. the HP Tech didn't call back. I took the computer to you at Geek Squad and it was fixed properly. Your Geek Squad rep said the effort with the cable would not have worked in any event! Turns out the software drivers for that functionality were burnt out and the system has to be restored to an earlier state. So it was not the cable's fault and the Geek Squad service was superb, but I can't recommend this to friend as suggested by your next question! Thanks for reading this far.

      works, but extra clip protector a bit annoying

      An ethernet cable either works or doesn't, and this works, so that's good. But recently a lot of them have been adding plastic or whatever around the clip, I guess to help keep it from breaking off as so often happens. But this also makes it difficult to remove the cable. The one on this is not too bad. I've definitely dealt with worse. And since I don't plan to plug and unplug this particular cable very often, it's not a big deal in my case. But I have dealt with some that are often moved around and are much more of a pain. I don't know what the perfect solution is here. The extra protectors are there to solve a problem, but create a new problem. I guess it depends on how often you move them around whether you want to have those or not.
