Hello, I've been searching for this for a while: a way to transfer files easily from a laptop to a laptop by plugging in a cable in both devices (thinking back nostalgically about the graphical calculators in high school). But I have no idea how to get the fastest transfer speeds... It seems some sites would recommend using a Gigabit Ethernet cable with twisted pairs, cat5(e) or cat6. But actual speeds are not easily found, this is what I wanted to ask first. Maybe the speeds are irrelevant since the read and write speeds are usually significantly lower (hence the 10 Gbps)? If speeds are relevant, what are they? Is cat6 worth the higher price? Can anyone also give me any infos on USB bridge-cables? I've heard USB 3.0 works with a cross-over cable similar to twisted pair ethernet, but it wouldn't be compatible with USB 2.0 and it's hard to find it. As you probably know by know, I have no experience at all on this subject. I'm sorry for any stupid questions, and will happily learn from my mistakes.
