Hello,

 

what are you after ? You need a straight thru standard Ethernet cable to connect the two devices. If you want to configure a router on a stick topology, the switchport needs to be configured as a trunk...

Regular Cat 5 or 6 is your option.  I would connect Router to switch1 to switch 2 to use etherchannels between switches. 

For CCNA exam/learning, do not forget use Packet tracer from Net Academy as well. Beyond that, GNS3 is great for routing labs.
