How long can wireless router antennae wire be?

I have poor reception for my home wifi at home.

I have got an "external" antennae already.

But I want to reposition the antennae.
So the wireless router with built in antennae can send signal to the
sitting room,

and the
external antennae can send signal to my bedroom.

I want to buy this 9 metre long cable that attaches the external antennae
to the wireless router.

Does this seem feasible?

I do not know what length is functional.

To my humble knowledge, I think USB cable, LAN cable drop
signal after a certain length.
