First off, you might be able to get away with it. Make sure the
link is running in full duplex --- between two routers, for
example --- if you want any chance. The only thing that will
stop you is if the signal is not strong enough on the other
end, or the noise has won. Amps might help, as would lower gauge
wire. I'd be interested in hearing how how far you can get away
The second option --- and this one will work --- is media
converters. They are about $100 each off ebay. They will let you
run 10km or so of fiber, far more than 400m. But this would
require the use of fiber. Fiber has the advantage of not
conducting as well.
 Before someone starts yelling collision domain, remember I said
'full duplex'. There should be no collisions, and hence no
problematic late collisions.
