I want to run a 90m cable from my main router to a host. It will work, as 90m does not exceed the maximum length allowed.
Router --(50m)--> Switch --(40m)--> Host A
If the cable is long or has a lot of interference, a switch in the middle is definitely required as a booster/repeater. However, is it better to put one in the middle in my case?
I could also run 2 separate wires like this. It is more expensive and harder to maintain I must admit:
Wire 1: Router --(50m)--> Switch wire 2: Router -----------(90m)-----------> Host A
I am not asking how to design my network. My question is: which is better in term of signal quality (bandwidth and latency)?
