The maximum lenght is 100m, but if you have on this line a HUB or a SWITCH the lenght can be more than 100m. Include in this 100m also the patch cords lenght.

It was a good answer and the added detail of hubs/sewitches/patch cables was very good. It would be better to have added a web site for follow-up and documentation.
Thanks
