    10m belkin Cat 5e cable delivered for £1



    Crossover cable, but most modern equipment won't care about that, and it's a heck of a lot of cable for £1!

    10m seems to have gone, but 2m also priced £1 and still available (Play advertise that the RRP is £4.99 however a Belkin cable with the same specification appears to be just £0.93 right now from eBuyer excluding delivery).

    Well, I use it for joining up my computers.
    We are still in the dark ages apparently, with 100mbps.

    If you only need one or two, the free delivery on this makes it very attractive. Sorry if the 10m have gone already.

    BTW, if you order one, I reckon my share of the commission will be around £.0001, so I'm going to keep plugging these very hard, as if I can get 100 people to buy one I'll make a penny.

    Is a "Patch Cable" different to an ethernet cable ? (i.e the thing that goes from a modem router to a computer)
    They look the same.

    there are two types, patch and crossover. In practice. all modern equipment can use either equally well.

    There's a new 10m one on at £1.99. Very blue though.
