cat 5 is used for home networks, that type of thing. and there's cat 5e (enhanced). then I found out about the existence of cat 6 and 7. what are these? do I need them?

I've seen that before, I think it just has a higher bandwith than the lower cat-spec wire. I can't imagine you would need them, as regular cat 5 (let alone 5e) can handle gigabit ethernet.
