100 ft of ethernet cable-where to buy

After a bunch of problems with my wireless, i'm going back to running cable, any ideas on how much 100 ft would cost me? Wally world wants 29 bucks for 50... but i'm sure there are electronic shops around dfw that would sell it cheaper, i just don't know where...help please

thanks

Home depot... and then altex has the plug ends. the expensive part is the crimper tool - if you wanna go that route

Get non-plenum CAT5 from Lowe's..

7 cents a foot.. Buy the crimper that comes with ends, and you're set..

don't get anything less than Cat 5 E and if you live close you can come use my crimpers if you don't want to buy any.

www.pricewatch.com . Cat5 is available in 100-ft lengths for $9 and up. Even when you include shipping costs it's usually a lot cheaper than most retail stores.

'98 Camaro SS: Incon twin turbo. Sold
'99 Camaro SS: Heads/cam/bolt-ons. Sold.
'91 Camaro RS: Stock.

2010 Camaro SS: Hell yes.
