How To Tell What You're Using

On most cables, you should be able to look at the cable itself and find the label printed on the outside surface of the cable. That's your best bet. Cat-6, 6a, and 7 cables are generally thicker than Cat-5e cables, and less flexible—so if you're used to handling Cat-5e cables, that's another easy way to tell.


Most people don't really care whether they're using Cat-5e, 6, 6a, or 7 cables at home. The Internet connection is the bottleneck, faster cables won't help that. Using a Cat-6, 6a, or even cat7 cable can enable faster speeds when transferring files or otherwise communicating between two computers on the local network, but the truth is most people won't even notice.
