What is an Ethernet cable?
An Ethernet cable (also known as a network cable, Cat5e cable, Cat6 cable, patch cable, or RJ45 cable) is the standard cable used for networking.
Ethernet cables have larger ends and cable than phone cable, but otherwise look similar.
A basic Cat5e patch cable is all that is required to connect your satellite receiver to your router.
