What is Wired Networking?

Wired Networking allows multiple nodes such as computers, mobile phone, printers or even NAS units to connect and exchange data. The link is established utilising a cabled connection using a specially designed Ethernet cable

Overclockers UK sells a wide variety of wired networking hardware and accessories enabling you to create your perfect home network whatever your requirements.

Wired Network Adaptors

Need to connect your pc to the internet or your home network using a wired connection? You need a wired network adaptor! Luckily most PCs have a wired adaptor built into the motherboard whereas gaming laptops have both options available as standard. The main reason you might want to use a dedicated card and not utilise the integrated version is for performance. Dedicated units generally offer higher bandwidth which means they are much faster at transferring data.

Wired adaptors come in 2 standards: PCI or PCIe so be sure to double check which you require for your motherboard.

Ethernet Cable

Many people ask us what Ethernet cable do I need? The answer is – It depends on what you plan to do with your network. We would generally recommend a Cat 5e which gives you lots of headroom without breaking the bank but ideally buy what you can afford. Take a look at the table below for an idea of what speeds you can expect from each type of cable.
