If bare metal is showing you have the potential to fry the port. I've fried a computer one by static electricity just by touching the end of it (the copper prongs).

Just pick up a new one, shouldn't me more than $10 or so

You can get a 75 footer from MonoPrice for under $10.

^ Pretty much sums it up.

Or you could do what I did - I bought a 1000ft of Cat 5e networking cable at Lowe's that was mispriced (I paid $15 for the whole spool) and bought two of them.

The jacks are only about 1 cent a piece and then I bought a nice crimper online for about $15.
