I have a existing poe cable which is 100 metres long and I want to connect a wifi camera which has 2 way audio on to it. Can I connect directly or will I need a wi fi extender?

Should work, that is basically what POE is all about. OTOH out of the six wifi cameras I've tried zero of them work long term, most would never setup, and almost all of them insist on talking to some server in china even when all cloud type storage is disabled.

Does the wifi camera have an RJ45 port and is poe compatible?

If not, does the wireless signal not make it to where the wifi camera will be installed?

Prime question, which wifi camera do you have, brand and model, and does it support POE, most but not all do.
