Ethernet Cables for Beginners
Wireless technologies, mainly Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, have replaced Ethernet in many homes and offices. But this doesn't mean that wired networks are going down the drain!
Let me give you a few serious reasons why this won't happen anytime soon. First of all, wired networks are reliable and fast. But probably their most praised feature is the huge range that can be achieved using an Ethernet cable, in comparison with the 50...100 feet range of a typical Wi-Fi network.
Ethernet cables are used to connect devices that belong to the same local area network: routers, computers, signal repeaters, and so on. They are quite similar with phone cables, even though they are a bit larger and have eight wires, rather than four.
