I mean Cat 8 would be the best one but it's overkill really. We provide Cat 6 when we ship the R2, really down to personal preference I suppose and whether the marginal differences is worth the difference in price.

Well, cable differences are for bandwidth purposes primarily. For example if you're running a gigabit network you'll want or your cable will bottleneck you.

Good read if you want to get into specifics. My suggestion for home network is shielded Cat 6 you won't utilize anything larger.

With shielded you need to ensure one end is grounded and any devices that are connected are grounded too. I keep to a basic UTP cat6 cable, it’s plenty for my needs.
