Long Cable Woes?

Feb 12, 2010

As we move forward into an increasingly wireless age, some people might start to question the need for cables.  Although wireless systems allow for more flexibility, they do have some drawbacks.

A wireless system depends on a wireless signal.  A modem will transmit this signal through a router to any available receiver, such as a laptop or gaming system.  Wireless routers are becoming more powerful, but they will always be met with restrictions.  There is only a certain distance for which the router can broadcast its signal.  Likewise, as a wireless signal encounters resistance like walls or floors, the signal will get weaker.  Also, certain weather conditions can effect the strength of your signal.  Wireless systems can also be more expensive.

The benefit to using cables comes in the fact that they will always maintain your signal.  Obstacles such as poor weather conditions or interior walls will not weaken the signal that is being transmitted through the cable.  The only drawback to a cable is the potential distance from router to its destination.

Say you just bought a brand new 52” LCD Flat Screen HD Television set.  You’ve decided to put it upstairs in the family room.  However, your computer is located downstairs in the office.  You need to have a connection to the internet for the game system you’ve hooked up to the new TV.  You’re afraid the wireless signal will cut out over such a distance, but you don’t know if you can find a cable that is long enough.  Even if you can you don’t know if you want a wire hanging through your house.  What do you do?

At, we got you covered.  Our cables can reach up to 200 feet in length.  Although that might seem like a lot, it is extremely easy to run a cable through your house.

Through the use of a staple gun, or plastic “zip ties,” which can be found in any hardware store, a wire can be kept safely out of sight.  Just in case a cable can’t be easily hidden, we offer a variety of colored cables that may easy fit in with the color themes of your home décor.
