I have always just bought a good quality basic ethernet cable, I buy a lot of mine at Fry's and some at Big Lots.

RE: ethernet cable question

Most routers come with a perfectly fine ethernet cable. If you need other ethernet cables to run to individual computers, don't get suckered into buying an expensive one at your local store. A couple of bucks is adequate. Here is one I just found on Amazon that is 25-feet long, has gold-plated contacts, gets great reviews, costs 98 cents, and ships for free!
