Ethernet patch cable features an RJ45 male connector on each end to let you connect a laptop or desktop computer to a wall outlet, modem, router or another networking device. CAT6 technology supports Ethernet speeds of up to one gigabit per second to maximize your network speed when working on data-intensive applications. Snagless moldings protect each plug from damage during installation and removal. Plus, the wires are housed in a durable, PVC outer jacket for abrasion-resistance and corrosion-resistance. Patch cable is also handy in home offices and hotel rooms to establish a wired Internet connection.
