How many quality Ethernet cables do I need to use?

Do you use a high quality (expensive) Ethernet cable from your modem to your router AND from your router to your streaming device, or do you just use one high quality Ethernet cable from the router to your streamer? Any comments/advice appreciated, TIA.

From the external of the house to my router I have fiber.

From the router on, use the best cable/filter/switch you can afford to address noise as much as possible.

My guess is that like power cords are critical from the wall to a conditioner/component, the last meter can be the most important part to focus on.

I have an English 8Switch, it is connected to the router supplied by my ISP. The router gets its data from the coax cable modem
