Reolink Ethernet Cable

An Ethernet cable is a cable that will connect your electronic device to a network, which in turn will allow you to have internet access and interact with shared network resources. In your home, an ethernet cable would connect directly from your router to a device such as a monitor, camera, or computer.

Our cameras support T-568B connectors and CAT5, CAT6, and CAT7 with 8 PIN Ethernet cables.

You can check the Ethernet cable on our website.
