Network Speeds & - Am I misleading myself

Hi can anyone advise me if im misleading myself.

I have a PC that is on a citrix network and I then open a remote desktop connection. When I was trying to download stuff on the remote desktop connection using Cat5e Ethernet Cable it kept stalling and failing. I then changed it for Cat6 UTP Network Lead and it suddenly works fine and not stalling and failing.

The reason that im doubting myself is cos im saving to a network location too and not the PC locally so it not going no where near PC.

Does the other network lead assist or is that just a red herring and got luck with connection when lead changed?
