Ethernet cable - maximum length?

Our telephone company has just decided to provide basic TV coverage over the internet for free.  This would require a connection between my router and the TV set top box - of course in another room and about as far away as possible from each device.

So, what is the maximum length of ethernet cable (10/100, RJ45 - I think that is the correct term for the connector) that will operate reliably under those conditions.  Put another way would 30 metres be OK (putting it next to walls...)
