correct ethnet cable

Basic question. I need a longer ethernet wire than the special cat5 (black with small grooves) they sent that connects from the ooma telo to the router. Can any Cat5E or CAT6 substitute? I am used to the round smooth type.

Yes, Cat5E or CAT6 substitute will probably be better than the one sent with the new Ooma.
