I need to add some extra network points around the house. These will be used for video and audio streaming (iPlayer and the like).
I need to buy some network cable to do this. So:
What's the difference between Cat 5e and Cat 6? If Cat 6 is better, is it worth me spending the extra to future proof? Or does it not work like that? Router is gigabit, and some of the hosts will be too.
Is there an easy way to tell if a seller is selling the solid cored (like I need) or the stranded (used for patch cables).
Has anyone got any favourite sellers. Ebay is easiest but the prices and sellers seem to vary so much. Only need 20m ish, but will need more in the future so looking to buy 50 or 100m.
