    Specs:
    MBP 17" Glossy 2.16 gHz/2gig/320g
    Distance from router (wired)
    I am going to be connected to my airport extreme as part of a file transfer system and was wondering what is the maximum distance I can be away from my router when connected by wire, (cat5 cable) and still have reliable quality and speed. Does the distance even matter?
