What is the maximum distance (ethernet cable length) I can use between modem and gateway

My modem location is in a wirecloset in the center of my house and is adjacent to a narrow hallway whic makes two interior walls the signal has to pass thru just to get to my beacons.   I also have limited ac power at this location.  II am in process of upgrading and expanding/refining my eero mesh from a gen 2 with one beacon to a EERO pro 6.   My house is hardwired with cat5e cabling.   I am wondering if a can move my gateway to a better signal location away from the modem to improve the central signal thru a longer ethernet cable.  Sorry if I am not real clear but I am a relatively newby.
