Ethernet

Ethernet is term used to describe the technology used to transfer data over computer network. An Ethernet plug accepts the RJ45 size connector, and can carry different types of signals including analog phone signals as well as Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat7. Cables used between Ethernet devices are known as Network cables. While certain HDMI cables can now carry Ethernet signals, the RJ45 plug is still the standard type found on computers. Users of modern, thin laptops may find the unit is missing an Ethernet port due to limitations on thickness, though USB-C to Ethernet adapters are available to enable connection.
