WIFI antenna extension cable any good?

Last time I asked for advice regarding WIFI extender. I posted the below image with my PC position in green.

A couple of weeks ago my wife wanted to do some rearranging. Seems like my PC has been moved from green dot to new position in pink (Bed Room BR2). WIFI router is orange.

In the new position normal usage is fine, but I cannot get good ping when gaming. It is just too far from the router.

I read that the wifi extender route is not good for gaming as ping is increased. So I prefer to avoid this method.

I was considering using a 5m or 10m extension cable for my PC wifi antenna, such as in the following link:


Any comments on whether this will work?
