Is there a difference in Ethernet cables? I thought apart from length, they were all the same? :|

Well, twisted pair, CAT etc. - however, most "consumers" will never learn about that. Many NICs nowadays ignore such requirements anyway. :)

http://www.buzzle.com/articles/ethernet-cable-types.html <- read up on it, if you like to. :)

Just be glad that those things don't exist anymore:
