I have just rung Maplins and asked if they have standard length Cat 5 cable with RJ45 connectors on the end. They do, but the guy has asked if I want crossover or patch. I dont know.

It is to go between a Netgear router and a small distribution hub. Can anyone please advise?

straight (which is what they are known as) cable cos ur going between two routers/hubs if it was between two computers then you would need crossover cables bu you will be fine with a straight cable...
