I have a wifi card in my pc and i want to move the antenna to a better location.  How long can a wifi antenna cable go before you start to see dropped signal or weaker signal?

Very little distance. Ideally the Wi-Fi antenna needs to be connected directly to the board itself for no loss in power at all. Even a short distance will affect signal strength.

I would advise using a USB extension cable and an external Wi-Fi card with the antenna connected directly to it, like an Alfa card.
