Technically Cat 5e is plenty.

HOWEVER, if you are doing something like house wiring, considering that Cat 6 is cost about the same, if not, then the same, these days, might as well go Cat 6. And considering that majority of the cost is labor, might as well spend the little extra and go with Cat 6 shielded or even Cat 7, and ensure excellent connection and no need to re-wire the home from future tech.

 

If you just buy a new Ethernet cable, just get the cheapest quality cable.. usually CAT 6. Already had CAT 7 shielded cable cost the same as Cat 6, as I was looking for a specific color (white), at least in Canada.

Nha. Cat 7 is really there if you need cabling at or higher than 100m of length.

To connect your modem to router to PC, assuming those aren't 100m apart, you are perfectly fine with Cat 6.
