    General Help in Connecting router to computer

    Help in Connecting router to computer
    This is how my home looks like.
    1 - WiFi router + modem
    2 - computer
    Now as per proper WiFi rulebook it's placed in middle of house.

    What's the proper way to connect long distance WiFi router to computer?

    After measuring distance is 9 meter.
    If I connect RJ45 LAN cable I need that long cable. I know it's available. Never used LAN cable that much meter.
    WiFi dongle other option I found, but problem will be too many WiFi and security problem.

    RJ45 cable, WiFi dongle or any other device?
    What I should do?
    Which will be better for connection and security?
    What about your house? How's your router connected to computer?

    Just get a wifi dongle and try to move the router closer to the PC.

    Go with the RJ-45 cable. 10m is nothing for a CAT cable. If possible go for a CAT6 cable.
    Ethernet connections are extremely reliable and safe.

    Perfect answer.

    There 4 cat cables. But I found there are cat 7 and cat 8, 9 also available.
    Cat6 cable is little pricey. By looking prices on mdcomputer site "price decreases as length increases".
    Can you suggest 10 meter cat6 cable price ~ ? (For bargaining)
    There is also cat 6a and cat 6e.

    How to identify this cat6 cable?
    Cat 6 written on cable but for 10 meter they are definitely cutting wire. So not sure it will be written on cable.
    After looking on Google, I found many ways to identify this cat 6 cable but which is genuine? All are different. Confusion?
    1. number of twists per cm in the wire, and sheath thickness

    2. nylon spline/star filler/internal separator that isolate pair from one another

    You can ask for RJ-45 CAT patch cable from any computer shop. Costs around Rs 15 per meter for CAT 5e. CAT 6 may be a bit expensive. But CAT 5e should do the task in your case.

    Modern Lan ports / chips are capable enough to work with "straight" / "crossover" cable so don't worry about all the cat 5 / 6 / 7 jargon.

    Actually it's much better to use a USB wifi dongle or even better your smart phone to configure the router and to connect the without wires with the wireless router.

    As for security issue after successful setup and configuration use a stronger password for router admin page and access ( if both are separate ) - your issue solved.

    Cat 5,6,7 are overall same but with speed difference. As of now I can work with any.

    Connecting WiFi dongle to WiFi router it does not look good. Mobile can also be used to make WiFi computer? Don't know that. I will try it with old device.
    Router already configured.

    I think connecting cable will be more secure than dongle or mobile.
    Case is different for inbuilt WiFi motherboard.
