Hello,
I have a WGR614 v9 router and would like to use Cat 5 or 5E from the router to blu ray player about 50 feet away. Are there any distance limitations to this type of config. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

According to the ANSI/TIA/EIA standard for category 5e cable, (TIA/EIA 568-5-A[5]) the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 meters (328 ft).
