USB appears to be limited to 16 feet, but there appears to be "workarounds"...

VGA is apparently good for 100 feet without issue---but watch out about splicing cables together...any splice in any cable may degrade signal strength...

I have a USB extension cable which is at least 25 feet long,
but nowhere near 25 metres. (It is at another location or I'd
measure it and say exactly.) It has an amplifier built in which
just uses the USB power. I used it to test various locations
for WiFi signal strength several years ago, before I acquired
a hand-held device that could get Wi-Fi, in order to move the
antenna around a large area while attached to my desktop
PC without having to move the PC. I don't know what it cost
because I got it at a store closing. The brand is TRENDnet.
I'm sure many other brands exist.
