Ethernet cat5/6 cable?


The My Cloud manual says to use the included cable for best performance.

Problem is that this cable is too short. Would there really be an issue if I bought a cable with same or better specifications ? It would only be slightly longer, approx. 1 meter / 3 feet. 

Thank you for your help.


Category 5e or better cables up to 100 meters will work fine.

cat5e can go gigabit speeds which is the max speed on the port.

you can get cat6 but you will be wasting your money.
