I am having problems with the WiFi connection on my smart TV. It is the TV and not the network. I want to connect an Ethernet cable. I will have to purchase a longer length. Is there any difference in the color of the cables? I want to get a black one. Will this be okay to use with the router I rent?
Color does not matter with Ethernet cables. Although, sometimes the cables might be 'crossover' and not 'straight through' which are for special use and might be a different color. Just make sure it is a 'straight through' cable which is the default unless labeled otherwise.
You want to use a cat5e (or higher) labeled cable no matter the color.
