    The locking clip tab on my Ethernet cable clipped off: Recommendations


    Cox supplied DOCSIS® 3.0 AC1900 Data Cable Gateway modem/ router.

    It clipped off a coupe of years ago and finally it got to the point where it just slips out of the port to often for me to overlook it. I'm pretty sure if I just dropped by the Cox store they would give me another one but getting to the store traffic wise most anytime of the day is a mess. I have some store credit at Best Buy so I want to go there. I am assuming all cables are not equal but based on the specs from the link above and the fact that I do not have Gigablast I certainly do not need the most expensive replacement cable. Will any of these cheap ones do? TIA.

    Those would be fine. Any CAT-5e cable is capable of gigabit speeds, especially at those short lengths.
