I need to get a new patch cord for my internet connection between my computer and modem and was wondering what would be my best option for this. I just found a random patch cord on Amazon and wanted to make sure I was getting the right setup. I don't know much about this stuff but I take it I would want to get a CAT5 RJ45? I want to certainly get the best connection. Any benefit with going with CAT6?

What I found on Amazon:

A regular Cat5e is all you need.
