Have Linksys WET610N gaming adapter and need to set it up so that my Panasonic 50V10 can get with the internet.  In the instructions for setting up the adapter I've got to first do some settings via my router and then take it over to where it will be installed in the TV.  There is a blue ethernet "looking" cable that came with the unit.  Is this blue cable just an ethernet cable, or is it a special cable?  Reason that I ask is that it is a pain to get to my TV and I would like to be able pre-install  into the TV a standard ethernet cable (that is about 2-3 times longer than the supplied blue one) prior to actually hooking it into the adapter

It is very likely a "standard" ethernet cable.


To verify, hold the two ends side by side. If the color patterns of the individual wires are identical, then it is an ethernet cable.

Good news.  What made me question whether or not it was a standard ethernet cable was that the instruction manual kept referring to it as  a "network" cable.  So I guess I can now place a 6-8' ethernet cable on the TV, enclose the TV back into the entertainment center and have the other end of the cable at an accessable place when I'm ready to hook in the adapter.


EDIT:  Going ahead and placing non-Linksys ethernet cable into TV.  May be able to hook WET610N to it today.  Will report back if it works.


EditEdit: Everything is hooked up and working.  Both TV and BD can access the net.  Thanks.
