Will this cable do the job?

  Frosty120 16:30 26 Dec 2007

I want to wire my house! I have a router and two PC's already cabled up. I have 2 printers with ethernet sockets which I want to connect and I want to put in some hubs to allow me to connect more devices in some rooms.

Seeing as I'll be using lots of cables at different lengths, it makes sense for me to buy a reel of cable, some connectors and a crimping tool.

I understand that I need Cat5 cable and RJ25 connectors (correct me If I'm wrong there please!), so I've been looking on Dabs and Scan for these.
This is the cable that I've come up with:

Information on the product seems to be quite limited.

Does anyone know if this is what I need? If not can you help me find the right cable?

Thanks for all your help.

The cable is fine as far as I can see - bog standard Cat5e - but you might want to look for RJ45s! ;-)

Thank's Kemistri!

lol the RJ25's, I'm an idiot!

Thanks for your help, and all the best for the new year!
