CAT 6 Cables, Which one to get?
I'm not a networking guy so I need your advice for a project we're working on at home. We are planning on pulling in some CAT 6 cable into the walls throughout the house and have wall plugs all around the house in every room which will lead to a main plug where the router gets attached.
So basically one area where there are 4 wall plugs (Router Area), and then every room (4 rooms) will have a single CAT 6 (LAN) connector in the wall. I hope this is understandable.
Now there are so many different cables to get. My question is: If i want to get some cables in the wall, but there is a chance of weather interaction, because our house is a Manufactured house (meaning it's standing on metal planks and there is air under the house), will I need some special heavy duty cables like these:
Or would I be fine with something like this?
And since I won't be using 1000ft of cable around the house, maybe just around 400ft, should I just go with cables like these and just cut down the ends to reveal the internal colored cables?
The third option would probably be the most cost efficient way of doing it, but are those cables good enough to pull through the wall, or are they only designed for internal use?
