Hi there,

Yes you can mate,if the distance is too far and its not able for the connection then you will need to make use of a network repeater which will amplify the signal for long distances.

Thanks

Hello,

Yes, you can. The limit for the Cat5 cable is 100 meters. If you exceed that limit

then signal loss will occur.

Good Luck.
