Network Cables

What is the difference between category 5e and category 6?

The main difference between category 5e and category 6 is in the transmission performance, due to a bandwidth increase from 100 MHz for category 5e to 250 MHz for category 6. The improvements provide a higher signal-to-noise ratio, allowing higher reliability for current applications and higher data rates for future applications.

As a general rule, if you're cabling a mission critical system or you want your network to be as future proof as possible, go for the CAT6 cables, but for the average home or small office network CAT5e will be just fine.
