Re: Copper link longer than 100 meters

My experience beyond specifications is to keep the Ethernet cable as short as possible, as isolated as possible :)
Maximum is really about 100 metres then collision detection mechanisms "break" the link.
Use some repeater in the middle and you should be fine.
