HELP!! Running Cable for High Speed Internet..

Switching from DSL to Cable and I need to run coaxial to my computer room. Any recommendations on brand or type of cable to use? Will any coaxial cable do?
I'll be fishing the line from one side of the house, through the attic, and into my computer room, so any advice for that part of the job is appreciated as well!

Not rocket science, use RG6 coax and terminate it properly w/ good F connectors. I can't emphasize that enough, make sure the connections are good.

FYI, most of the time when you order your cable modem, if there isn't a cable outlet in the room, they will wire it without additional charge. I've had that done before, and in the house I'm in now, the installer expressed his relief that we already had a cable jack in the room, cause it made his job about an hour shorter

'91 Camaro RS: Stock.

2010 Camaro SS: Hell yes.

That's true, my installer ran a pretty extensive line to my office from outside.
