Hi there , if you are going to follow the rules cisco would tell you 100 Meters is the limit.
I have in the past gone to 150-200M but you can’t expect to get the full throughput. watch out for the florescent lighting and A/C equipment as this will cause interference. I would suggest that if you need to break the 100M length you could use a small linksys Soho router as a repeater thus theoretically expanding you network by another 100M. I think the max nesting on this 2 -3 devices. you really should be looking at fibre if your going over 200M

thats my 10 cents worth

    As per TIA/EIA standards the maximum distance allowed is 100 Meters. No doubt the cable will work for more than 100 meters but the performace will be degraded,

    STP, in terms of cabling, usually means Shielded Twisted-Pair. In other words, a higher quality (and cost) of cable that is suited for running along areas where interference might otherwise be encountered (such as beside fluorescent lighting, heavy electrical equipment, etc.). I don't believe that it gives any advantages in terms of additional range, just protection from outside noise crossing over the carried signal.
