i have to connect DSL receiver with Ethernet Hub distanced at 60 meters. what should be the optimal length of cable and and type of cable can be used for this without packet loss/ signal loss?

Minimum length, 18 inches.

Maximum length, up to 100m without needing a repeater.

Optimal length, as close to minimum as possible/practical.

Cat5e should be fine - you're doing 100Mb, yes?
