Router position WIRED

Hey guys I'm hoping someone from you can help me. I am wondering does it matter if my router is closer to my PC or closer to the source of the signal, IE the wire from the wall.I am talking about a WIRED connection, should I buy a longer cable to reach the router, or 2 shorter ones and put the router in the lets say middle of the connection between my PC and router. Does it affect the signal, packet loss, speed etc?

No, unless the cable is over 100m in length there is no impact on packet loss/ping/etc.
