Quick question, I was unable to identify the coaxial cable type used in wifi devices(routers ,tablets,etc.) , very thin grey cable approximately 1mm in outer diameter, I need to know the type so I can know the full specs. And if anyone knows the coax type used in laptops, it's a little bit thicker maybe 2mm in outer diameter. I'm making a 5 ghz double biquad antenna , and I need to check which coax works the best. Thanks in advance.

    \$\begingroup\$ @MarkoBuršič I'm guessing you are holding a black cable. \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Feb 28 at 13:04

    \$\begingroup\$ @Andyaka It's a trick question, he's not holding a cable at all ;-) \$\endgroup\$ – Bimpelrekkie Feb 28 at 13:04
