Network Cable?
 
I was given four 7ft network cables, I was wondering if they are OK to use
in my home network. Right now I have just the blue 5e cables in my network.
The writing on these cables is as follows:
Enhanced 350MHZ Patch Cord 2835 E87647-DG AWM 60 C 30V LL58663 CSA AWM
I A 80 C 30V FT1 ETL Verified to EIA TIA568A CAT5e DRAFT 8b

Re: Network Cable?
 
The colour are meaningless.
You should see if the cables are cross thu or stright.
Cross cables can link between PC-PC while stright can link between
PC-routers/hubs/switch.

"TIA568A CAT5e" means that they're fine for networking.

To tell whether you have a regular or crossover cable, hold the two
ends together in the same orientation. If the wire colors are in the
same order on both ends, it's a regular cable. If wires 1-2 and 3-6
are reversed between the ends, it's a crossover cable.
