How to remotely locate wireless router using ethernet cables

Hello,
Can I remotely locate my roommates wireless router from next to my desktop's modem using 50' ethernet cat 6 cables, and will unshielded cables suffice? Will the 50' from modem to router and 50' router back to desktop ( total of 100') noticeably degrade the signal my desktop receives? Thanks for your input.

  1. Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

    A hundred feet is nothing to the distance the DSL signal travelled from the telephone exchange so you shouldn't have a problem. I'd be more concerned as to how you're joining two 50Ft cables together than the overall distance.

    Any reason why wireless isn't good enough?

    Roommate? That's one darned big room! :D
