What is the difference between a CAT 5, a Cat 5 e, and a Cat 6 Ethernet
cable?
Thanks in advance.

Use www.google.com to find out.
compare cat5 cat5e cat6

Basically to do with frequency / signal losses and rated speeds to
10/100Mbps 5/5e (also 5e does 1000Mbps) , then 1000Mbps for 6.

5e is simply a tighter spec ver of 5 for performance issues.

6 is a tighter overall spec, covering all connectors, terminations from
end to end.
