With just a tiny bit of tweaking you can do _WELL_ over 100 meters
wireless using a Linksys wireless router and good antennas. I shared our
connection wireless with my daughter about a block away for a while.
You can reliably run wireless much further than you can cat5.
One of the two ISP feeds into the house uses 5.8 gigahertz link from an
antenna eight miles away. Then converts to 2.4Gigahertz and feeds other
users one of which is well over a mile away.
Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
