Okay, here's the deal. The church's Internet connection is upstairs. It is Comcast Cable. Two cat 5 cables go downstairs. One is routed through the basement and up one floor to the Assistant's office. The second goes another direction, upstairs a floor and to my office. Then another cable branches off of that from my switch downstairs and to the Pastor's office. (The reason for this is the difficulty in getting to the front of the church where our two offices are located.) (On opposite ends of the building.)
Our laptop and projection system is in the balcony the same floor as the Comcast provided equipment. It has more ports than we are using by at least one or two, however the church opted to have no Internet connections elsewhere except for three of the offices mentioned.
Anyhow, I don't keep the Laptop Antivirus as updated as I should since the battery has been dead for years. I did get a second power adaptor so unhooking it wouldn't be so hard (on a stand that is hard to maneuver the cables and wiring). Nonetheless, it is still a bit of hassle and I don't take the time like I should as often as I should.
So, that is one reason I have considered an even easier solution of getting a long cat 6 cable for a temporary hookup. Now there is another. We have someone wanting to do a simulcast there.
I would prefer a pre-made solution than making our own from bulk at this point at least. Would these be good choices? If I choose to go longer than needed are there any other considerations than price and the messiness of too much cable? I would probably at most use the cable once weekly to update the Antivirus when I do the PowerPoint up there plus the occasional extra thing. Essentially the computer is used for the Sunday services plus by myself and another who do slides for the services plus occasional things like VBS and guest speakers. The Laptop is an IBM Thinkpad (purchased I think not long before Lenovo bought them out).

Is the Comcast Internet sufficient for the latter of these requirements? I presume so.
An internet connection. One Meg of continuous download capability for Standard Definition (DSL connections) and 3 Megs of continuous download capability for High Definition (Cable Modem and Broadband connections).
**The key element is an internet connection that is capable of streaming to your church or home.
