The most common cable used in PC for network or internet connection is the UTP Cat 5. UTP Stands for Unshielded twisted Pair and it consists of two tunshielded wires twisted around each other. UTP does not offer high bandwidth and better protecion from interference as compared to co axial cable & fiber optic but since it is inexpensive, it is the widely used cable for networking in the industry.

well yeah its cat 5 ! but its can be any other depends on what you use and what hardwares etc you have !! well to explain you cat5 just have a look Category 5 cable, commonly known as Cat 5, is an unshielded twisted pair cable type designed for high signal integrity. Category 5 has been superseded by the Category 5e specification. This type of cable is often used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet, although it is also used to carry many other signals such as basic voice services, token ring, and ATM (at up to 155 Mbit/s, over short distances).

Ok here's a little info: Cat5 is the cable while RJ 45 is the jack you use for it. EIDE, IDE, SATA and SATA 2 are all connectors for your drive devices to your motherboard. IDE and EIDE are the wide ones while the SATA and SATA2 are the new generation type of connectors and they are the ones that are as wide and as thin like a juicy fruit gum.
