i need a 100m and 50m compatible with speeds up to 1000mbps cat6 internet cable so i can have internet in my room, i will need to buy a coupler we just moved house and i cant find the one i used to have, can they reduce the performance of fast cat6 internet cables? my internet is 115mb

If I remember correctly, the max length of the cable connection is 100m. With your coupler you're talking about extending it to 150m which would be problematic since I believe the coupler is passive and just passes through the signal. You would need a repeater of some sort or a switch.
