Genuine. If you do give it a go post a photo in the thread or even if you just open it up and take a photo... I'd be interested to see how different they are or aren't inside.
I will. I'd like to try and get this done tomorrow but I'm not sure if I'll be able to go get a Cat5 cable or where I'd get one from around here. Surely the local computer shop, or one of them at least, should sell them?
Also Jim, in the guide, you said you prefer a 1m cable but then in the example photo you used a 10m cable? Is it easily interchangeable?
Edit: Just read over it again and it seems that's the whole point of your guide, being able to change the cable to have a different length I might buy two cords, one 3m and one 10m for whenever I feel like trying something different
