Recommend me somewhere to buy ethernet cable
for a PS4 in decent lengths (I’ve yet to measure maybe 10/20 meters), with the plugs on each end.
I want to run it direct from the BT Hub to the PS4. I just want plug & play!
A link would be appreciated.
Thank you.Posted 9 months ago
Or do Belkin do one with gold plated connectors & directional wiring at 10x the price?Posted 9 months ago
Links appreciated as I don’t have a Scooby. However, I can drill a few holes, thread a cable & plug it in.Posted 9 months ago

Couple of options with lengths including 10m and 20m :
Eight hundred and seven pounds fifty pence per ******* meter 👀 ❗❗❗ but that’s ok, because it’s actually discounted.Posted 9 months ago
Broadbandbuyer, prices start at 68p for Cat5e any colour you like.Posted 9 months ago
May aswell get cat5e STP as opposed to cat5e UTP for the price difference.
STP = shielded twisted pair
UTP = unshielded twisted pair.
If the cable isn’t specified, assume it’s UTP.
You could get cat6 as it’s not that expensive but it’s completely overkill for a PlayStation.Posted 9 months ago
Shielded twisted pair has to be installed correctly for it to actually work. ie it needs to be grounded at the ends.
Also a bit heavier and thicker. Not much point in paying any extra for it.
Any Cat 5e / Cat6 UTP will work fine.
Just make sure it is actually copper, some of the cheap stuff is CCA (Copper Clad Aluminium), which may be less reliable, and more easily damaged by bending it etc.
Kenable are good. They also have an Ebay shop, maybe cheaper with postage etc.Posted 9 months ago

Hah, love the bullshit comparison graph on the Starlight Platinum cable, it’s way more “design efficient” than the competition – take my money!!!Posted 9 months ago

I’d be inclined to go for this outdoor stuff if I were you. For the sake of an extra couple of quid it’s got a beefed up outer which it claims is weatherproof.Posted 9 months ago
I have a few of these dotted about the house:
