      Ethernet. You could run it 100m and see no appreciable difference.

      However, that said, the RJ11 (grey cable) will also cope with 10m+, maybe 25m so over a short distance it won't really matter.

      In theory you should extend the ethernet cable. This is because extending the grey modem cable will degrade your line quality. However, over the distance you are talking about it makes no difference.
