125ft of CAT5 may get you a wireless WebCam with ranges of more than 125ft, so signal loss is a non-issue.
I need to monitor wild life activity on my property. The site is about 125 feet away from my computer.I have a Logitech Quickcam web cam with USB pigtail. I'm running 2.4 intel,XP pro,512 ram,with a Linksys wireless-G router.I have not had the cam out of the box.
Question#1 Can I run a wire(cat5?) 125 feet with usb ends cam to computer without to much signal lost? If this doesn't work then to question #2.
Question#2 Using the wireless router and a new wireless cam will the signal travel that far and can I boost the signal if needed?
