Im not to sure what the actual distance is but my own connection
at home is a total of 4 phones in various locations around the house max
main port about 20m, on top that there is about 20m of cable including a
to the modem so the distance Im working with is about 40m with one extender.
Regarding quality I have noticed no drop in connection or download times,
external USR 56k VoiceFax, and the typical connection speeds range from
45333kb to 44000kb
while dialling through Indigo.
