Longest. Ethernet. Ever.

Pluggers,

What's the longest Cat5e cable you have run from your ethernet switch to 
a computer? I have a link that may require about 200 meters, but I know 
that 802.3 says 100 meters is the max. Repeaters of any kind are, 
unfortunately, not an option for this installation. Can I increase the 
distance by getting a GigE switch?
