Default Network Cable/Ram Questions

Hey all, I play alot of games online(counter strike source etc etc) And i play on wireless that goes through 4 walls..i still get a 54mbps connection at excellent but i get bad ping spikes while in game. I wanna connect from my computer to the router downstairs how do i do this and what kinda of cable should i get..Maybe post a link to a good one i should get ..50ft-and above btw

The other question is im looking to get 512mb of ram 2700(333) for my comp 50dollars and lower to speed up a lil. can anyone point me in a direction in what kind or brand to get ? Thanx!!!

Does the router have those normal network ports? (don't know if the wireless ones do)
If so then just get a normal cable (rj45) and just plug the other end into the router and the other into your pc.

As for the ram, I'd recommend kingston, ocz, corsair, geil or mushkin. (might have forgotten about a few good ones, there are so many)

Well im guessing ya got a standard router with rj45 connectors, confirmation of this would be good tho. Heres a link to a 100 metre cable, ya can also get shorter ones if ya want. I doubt ya will get cheaper than this.

As for the RAM, i would say for you to get the best ya can afford. Brands like corsair, kingston, crucial etc. Dont get a no namer brand.

just thought to point out, thats 100ft, not 100m
100m would be something you would use to steal your neighbours connection

Yeah 6 uses a copper core if i remember correctly. 5 or 5e will do ya fine, they will both work fine and are cheaper then 6. Also 5e is same speed as 6 so its good for future upgrades, no need to replace the cable. Heres a link to explain it better
