      Ethernet outside

      Hi guys

      Would a Ethernet cable b safe to run up the side of the house? As my home plugs are dying and can't afford to replace them.

      So might run the cable out and round.

      Any advice welcomed

      Yes, but you would need to use black polyethylene sheathed Cat 5E cable suitable for outdoor use.
      If you don't have cavity wall insulation it might be easier and cheaper to drop standard cat 5E cable from the loft between the inner and outer walls.

      You will get a suitable quality cable from CAT5e Cable External Grade, 10M Length Cheaper junk cable is available elsewhere.
