    If you are worried you can try to find a repeater to put into the line. No idea how much those cost. But I've done well over 400ft+ runs before and been ok.

    Just make sure you aren't running parrellel with power lines for a long distance. Or if you are try to keep the cat five about 3ft away from them.
    Eh thats all I can recall at them moment. Maybe once I have some caffinee I'll remember more.

    So you have no power inside the house? thats the ones I'm talking about. Should have gotten a box of cat 5 and made your own.

    I still think it would be better to run a cable line instead of a cat5....less expensive duder.

    The best option IMO is to set up a couple of APs (acess points (wireless)), one at your dad's and another at yours, connected with an unidirectional antenna (pringles or otherwise) with some sort of encription just in case.
    Not sure about the cost though.

    The connection and only be split once before the modem, which is at my dads house. The only way to get the net out to me is to use networking because the cable company will not give me another line.

    I did make my own cable, i just bought a length of it. The cable is run i am waiting on my dad to get home and let me in his house, jerk locked me out (long story).

    ok the stats at my dads house was betweeb 380-400kb per second on a download of americas army, streaming video damn near instant, and webpages were flying faster than i could figure out what i wanted.

    I dont forsee 200ft of cat5 making it much slower than in the house.
