  • Best Answer:

    If you do not have any other routers, the AirPort can only be mounted as far as the cables can reach. If you have another router, then it can be mounted anywhere it receives a good signal.

  • The closer the better. Ethernet cables have an effective distance limit on them which is generally much greater than the size of a typical house so you probably won't have any problems but as with all wiring, shorter is better.

  • The standard for an ethernet run is no more than 100 meters ( About 328 feet). There are ways to get a longer run but that is a much more involved answer.
