Ethernet cables are sold by length Type and quality of cable and the connectors. They are not very expensive and a Cat6 cable is a better quality cable than a Cat5 and they should be from a name brand company. I paid under $20 for a 50Foot Cat6 Belkin gold cable including S/H at Ebay and amazon has similar prices as do many retail outlets. They also come in shorter lengths. They HDMI and Ethernet cables for connection of the PS3 do not have to be Sony brand to work perfectly
