Hi before purchasing a skype phone I will need to extend the the USB connection by 5 Meters from the PC as I want one phone down stairs if possible, I realise that a USB extension cable wont work as other people have tried it.
I have searched Google to solve the problem but cannot find a solution has any one over come this problem.

Make sure that in the audio setup, you have selected the USB device and not the usual onboard audio/record devices. You have to activate the USB VoIP phone.

After more re-search on extending a skype USB phone line it apears that there is a loss in quality to the phone and a USB has its limits.
