Suitable ethernet cables for hub one router.

Hi, I have a hub one router and was looking for ethernet cables but there are many different types, e.g. cat 5, 5e, 6, 7, 8. Which are compatible with the hub one router? Thanks

I would say go for a minimum of 5e but all should work ok.

Here's a useful link https://www.nmcabling.co.uk/2018/12/what-is-the-difference-between-cat5-cat6-cat7-or-cat8-cabling/

The Hub One LAN ports are capable of 1Gb, therefore you need Cat5e or better to take advantage of that. In reality anything better than Cat6 is probably an overkill
