When you call tech support for your (smart tv, xbox, playstation, wii, any wireless only device) and as soon as you mention wifi, they say that that is your problem.

That and the world of wireless is ruled by wires.
If your home network supports it, Gigabit.

I really wish that TD would specify whether it's 802.3/Ethernet or Tokenring

Anyone know if I can run this cable outside? Through the window. I never thought about running a cable but a 50' is just long enough.

Wouldn't it be worth the extra $1.04 for the faster tier? I'd hate to install a run this long and then have to yank it because it's "not quite fast enough".

Cat5e is gigabit (1000mbit/second) which is really all any consumer grade network needs (even Google/AT&T Fiber is only 1gbit). Going to Cat6/a will make no difference over Cat5e unless you already know why you need it. What *might* make a difference is getting STP (shielded cables) over UTP.

10gig

And if your ISP is pushing 1gig, why not have a faster internal network?

I thought 10gig over Cat5e was only for short distances?

If you have 1gbit ISP, why have more internally? Heck you won't even get 10gbit speeds with consumer HDD's. I doubt many home users would need it... Plus you get into some really expensive equipment (NICs and Switches/routers) for 10GigE so I don't think you're looking at saving a few bucks on network cables then..
