    My router is upstairs and TV downstairs. Too far for the receiver to get the signal. So, I figured if I can bring the signal to just above the TV room, I should be able to view the TV. I neede a 20 ~30 ft Cat-5 cable. And it worked.

    Not the best price but not the worst either

    I really only needed about 4 ft and this 6 ft proved to be to long, ended up returning and making my own patch cables but these are great for those who don't want to mess with making their own and are less picky than I about cables hanging

    A replacement cable

    I lost my internet connection when my old cable got a broken prong and would not stay in its slot. (Sorry, not a techie, its USB port??). This replacement needs to be pushed in all the time, or I lose my internet connection. I gave it 4 stars since it works but I feel it could have a more snug fit.

    This is one of those products that shouldn't really stand out, it should just do it's job and be forgotten. That's exactly what this cable does. It's a touch smaller in diameter than I expected, which is a nice surprise. Plugged it in and it works. Would buy again.

    No issues here, they work as expected. Little plastic bit did manager to keep the end from getting snagged/broken off when I had to pull it out of a tangle of other cords, so that's nice.

    This Insignia™ NS-PNW5506 Cat-5e cable is compatible with 10/100/1000Base-T networks and features snagless 8P8C male-to-male modular connectors that easily connected my PC to my WiFi router. So far, it is working great! There's not much else I can say about it other than it does what it's supposed to do!

    Needed a Ethernet cord for my ps4... Nothing fancy but wasn't sure which to use. I asked for help at best buy and they narrowed my needs to this cat 5e cable... This 6' cord was perfect for my setup and thus far, is working perfectly as I use it to watch my streaming movies and fast game play online.

    Got new computers so we decided to upgrade from a CAT5 to CAT6 and so far they work great! Cord seems really durable for normal use and the clips were very snug (no worries of it wiggling)

    My prior cable was too short to charge phone and use while in bed. This one allows me to use phone while it is being charged. 6' is a perfect length that is long enough but not too long to get tangled up beside the bed.

    Seems better than lower priced cable- thicker with heavy duty looking connectors at each end. Comes in various lengths but 6 ft is what we needed. Has worked flawlessly since day one, a year ago .

    I was in the process of installing Arlo Pro and noticed the puppy was chewing on something that was crunchy. On investigation, realized it was the Ethernet cable to my Arlo pro. Could not hook it up without the cable. This cable works great and no problems detectable.

    I just needed an extra cable to keep my smart TV connected to the internet as the WiFi sometimes drops when I'm using Netflix. It was long enough and the connections are secure. I get the maximum speed needed to watch Netflix in 4k so it works great.

    An Ethernet Cord At A Value.

    When it comes to Ethernet cords, you can choose to spend a lot of money or a little bit of money...but if you get this cord you'll spend a little bit of money but you'll get a reliable cord with a good return policy. 6 feet is a good common length and this fits the bill just fine.

    Purchased cable to hardwire my Apple TV 4K to my network and it has been great result. It is a CAT 5e and can handle gigabit speeds which is the internet speed of my network. The price was reasonable and length was perfect for my application. Great product

    I am not sure how helpful this will be. It is a standard Cat-5 cable. I plugged it in and it worked. I tested the speed and it rated the same as other cables I have in my home. It was less expensive than some of the others. If you want just a standard ethernet cable this is a great deal.

    This is a good quality cable and just the right length to direct connect my WiFi modem directly into my Toshiba Fire HD TV. Transmission speed resolved the voice delay when streaming movies.

    I bought the cable because my computer and printer weren't talking to each other via wifi. Turned out the problem wasn't the cable but the router/modem. I bought a new router a little while later. No more wifi communications problems. Both products are working very well.

    I purchased this cable with my wireless Belden router, which had a cable included for the modem. This cable will be used to run from the router to a principal (network control) laptop. The cable has a rugged insulation and has an insulating cover over the locking tab at the connector.

    Seems like less expensive Cat5 / Cat6 cables are always breaking off their locking tabs. This series/brand has well-protected locking tabs and always works well when I add a hub or router or need an extension. Good price, seems like they're always available ! Highly recommend.

    I use this for my 5G modem, internet and streaming. Works flawlessly. I have paid much more for similar supposed “high end” internet cables. This works as well or better at a third of the cost.
