OK, so I am at the point where I want to connect my 360, PS3, etc via ethernet. I've done some testing playing it via ethernet and over wifi and I can tell the difference at times. The problem is the router I have, which is built into my modem/cable box is in another room and should not be moved for the sake of everyone in my house as its closer to the center now and it still barely reaches everywhere. The TV is not that far from the router, but there is a hallway separating them.
I'll spare the details of my predicament, but simply I want to run a long ethernet cable from that room to the TV room when I want to play games online or just download large files and such. I typically play games late at night anyways so this isn't really a big deal as I can just roll it up when I'm done.
What I'm confused about is exactly what type of ethernet cable I want (cat 5, 5e, 6) and if anyone has a suggestion on a way to roll up the cable. I'm thinking a 75' or 100' cable would be plenty.
