  Question: Can I use CAT 5 Cable for gaming?

Answer: Many modern gaming systems can be played head-to-head using cat 5 cable. This is because you are simply networking the gaming systems together.

For this type of connection, many gaming systems will require the use of a crossover cable in order to communicate. Always consult your gaming system documentation to be sure of this. Manufacturers of gaming consoles will vary, so you may encounter some unique situations.

The transmission speed of cat 5 cable allows players to experience very fast gaming action while networked together. This is something that you will be able to notice a great deal, depending on the type of online gaming that you do. Many times, you can experience lag (which is a sort of stutter, or delay in the games execution caused by signal problems) while gaming if your equipment is not able to handle the speed.

The speed of your broadband connection, quality of your CAT 5 Cable, speed of the gaming console can all play a role in this. Make sure you use only top quality Patch Cables from CAT 5 Cable Company.

Many gaming systems also allow to to compete with your friends over the internet, so with the right equipment you can enjoy all the action.
