I need to run a hard ethernet line to my home office. There is no workable path inside the house. Can anyone recommend a vendor for outdoor rated Cat5?

You could run conduit, then any sort of cat5e.

yeah I considered that but too many twists and turns. I just want to tie wrap to an existing coax run.

You can use something rated CMX-outdoor (includes a cold-bend test and 720 hour UV) for this application, but you will want to tuck it up under the siding or hide it any other way you can to reduce exposure to UV.

Check out sewelldirect.com. They have very good prices on bulk cable, and if you call them up they are willing to work with you and get you exactly what you need. They are super fast shippers too.
