I'm gonna use a crossover cable to connect two computers but they fairly far away from each other.
Does anyone know what's the max length for the cable without affecting the transfer speed at all?

Thanx for ur help

An Ethernet cable (cat-5), by specification, can be used up to 100m between any two devices. This goes for straigh-through or cross-over cables.

I have not yet begun to procrastinate.
