What should you look for in a router extension cable?

A good router extension cable prevents signal loss, and many options give a maximum signal loss of only 3.0 dB. Those you select should be Wi-Fi compliant, be compatible with the IEEE 802.11a, and 802.11n wireless LAN standards, and prevent interference, working seamlessly with 2.4 or 5 gigahertz devices. A network with more 5 gigahertz devices included picks up less interference since Bluetooth devices, and other wireless devices like cordless phones, use the 2.4 gigahertz frequency. The cable you select must be designed for reduced signal loss at either frequency, while being small enough in diameter to easily pass through small holes, and long enough for you to place your antennas wherever you wish in your network. Some are designed with gold-plated connectors that have extra shields on them, making them resistant to the rain and sun.
