Can anyone tell me what sort of ethernet cable I would need to extend the ethernet connection from my cable modem to my computer and how long a cable I would be able to use? Would there be any significant losses and would this adversely affect broadband performance?

Hi, You can buy Cat 5 Ethernet cables in varying lengths very cheaply. Length of cable doesn't come into home computing unless you live in a massive mansion. Cheers, Bill

Should it be straight through or cross over?

Hi, Straight through. Cheers, Bill
