  • ethernet cable question

    Hello dear users,

    I am in doubt now. I woud like to connect my Macbook as a master computer and my PC as a slave by Vienna Ensamble by Vienna Ensamble Pro and Ethernet Gigabyt cable.

    On my PC I would like to keep my biggest libraries (Vienna Dimension Strings and so on) and on Macbook Pro have Mir Pro.

    I don;t really know which cable should I buy to have fast connection between computers. I know it should be Gigabyt Ethernet cable. Could you send me a name of cables that could work well it this set up?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Sebastian


  • You simply need a CAT6 (as opposed to a CAT5).


  • how do you reconize a Cat 6 cable ?

  • Cat 5e or Cat 6. 

    Get a cross cabe if you dont want to use a switch or hub. They way you can connect them directly to each other. Its usually marked on the cable on the the packaging.

    Between 2 x Mac you do not need to get a cross cable, Mac OS will do the "cross"
