Cat5e Red Ethernet Crossover Cable, Snagless/Molded Boot, 25 foot
This Cat5e 25 foot red crossover cable is used for networking, data transfer and phone lines. For use from a DSL/cable modem directly to the PC and for a direct link from PC to PC.
This particular cable is a red UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) patch cable with molded boots (snagless installation) and extra protection for the RJ45 connector and clip. The connectors are wired to the T568B standard. The individual conductors are 24 AWG (American wire gauge) stranded pure copper. Cat5e patch cables are stranded to improve flexibility. Pure copper conductors provide the best signal possible. The RJ45 plug features gold connectors to prevent corrosion thus ensuring a longer cable life. Our Cat5e Ethernet patch cables exceed the EIA/TIA-568-C standard.
I was connecting a TV dish receiver to a computer 20 ft across from each other. The stores in my area didn't have a Ethernet cable long enough, and the ones they did have were to expensive. CW had several to choose from and at a fraction of the cost.
