Network Question

Postby chris220 » Thu Nov 21, 2002 10:12 am

I have a network question. I am networking the computers in my house to share cable internet. I have two computers, a cable router/4 port switch and of course a cable modem. I know the basic design of a home network/shared internet but I'm not sure what kind of Cat 5 cabling to use. There are a few different kinds. Can anyone help or does anyone know any how to's for home networking that involves shared cable internet? thanks

snagless and molded are prolly just stronger and more expensive...
Just get generic cat 5...no frills...it'll work...
