| Cat5e or Cat6 cable |
|We have a PC which is far away from the 100 Mbps switch about 135 m. Is it possible for this PC to work with cat5e or Cat6 cable.|

It's possible (I would try cat 6) but the attenuation may make for lots of errors and retries. I think the ultimate solution (if putting another hub out there is not a good solution) is to run fiber and use media convertors at both ends.
