I want to extend my network cable behind the same network jack. So from the router to the jack A and from jack A to jack B.  Will i experience any performance issues?  
This is for home network.

All depends on the quality of the jack. Wich one are you intending on getting?
If it's good the I don't see any issues use good cables also Cat5e.

Just a home made jack.

It should work. I have used inexpensive joiners to make a longer cable and not had any issues. If home made, make sure you crimp properly.

To be candid, home made cables usually create more problems than ready made cables, jacks and joiners.

As long as you are not plugging more than one computer into the system it should work.

As noted above you need good connections.

If you have devices connected to both jacks, at the minimum it cuts their throughput in half.
That's a "performance issue," certainly.
