What Ethernet Cables can I use for Nighthawk X6 AC2200?

My Nighthawk X6 Wifi Extender came with cat5 ethernet cable. Am I able to upgrade/replace it with either cat6 or cat7 cable and should I notice any difference in perfomance? With my current internet provider I have up to 1GB speeds.

CAT5E is sufficient for 1 Gbps speeds. Anything higher and you need CAT6 (or 7 if you go much higher). You will not notice difference between CAT5 and 6 if your speed is around 1 Gbps
