I want to use a webcam for surveillance, more than 5m from any PC. Just need a recommendation for a decent ethernet extender. Thanks.

Don't you want a USB extender? you will probably need active over that distance.

So you are using an IP camera? Or just a USB extender?

USB 2.0 allows for 5m of cable but over that you will need an active cable.
