    Well, I'm currently using a USB wireless network adapter for my desktop to be connected in my apartment. Due to moving where the modem is, I'm getting my signal being cut in half, so I've decided to just go with the hard wire route. I ordered about 50 feet of network cable, which is enough for the length between the desktop and the modem, though I do have a switch if I ever decide to game on the 360, I would just get some shorter cables and go from there. Well, my question is this- at 50 feet, should I be worried about signal loss from the modem? I heard that you may get some at 75 or 100, but I haven't heard anything about 50 feet.

    50 feet is fine.

    No. Signal degradation starts around 275 feet.
