The max length of Ethernet is about 100m,

but also in my experience if use cat6, it give you distance about 150m

but look in general :

the max is 100m that is sure, between 100-160m it will work but you can not sure

There is another recommended solution

if your distance more then 100m, you can use Repeater in the medial the will regenerate the signal

I hope this will help you

If this helpful plz rate
