    I have never used a FTP program before.

    I want to establish a connection between my PS3 and my computer using FileZilla. While everything seems pretty straight forward and the information on how to do this has been being thrown around like a midget at a party, no one mentions which cable I need or what is recommended.

    So far, I have seen Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6 cables, which ones are compatible and which ones should I use? Any other recommendations?

    Anyone of those will work, provided you are plugging it into a router. If you are plugging it into a PC, then you'll need the crossover variety.

    Awesome! Thanks for the fast response. Considering I am going straight from my PC to the PS3, I should be looking for maybe a Cat6 Crossover? Is Cat6 leading in this race haha?

    A Cat6 cable is only going to be useful if you have a Gigabit Ethernet on the PC side. Otherwise your standard Cat5 should be fine for 100mbps.
