USB entender cable?

  BlueDaggs 09:45 22 Oct 2008

In an attempt to get an even better wireless signal I was thinking of purchasing a long USB extender cable (10 meters or so) to put the USB recieve is a better / closer position to my D-Link router... would this work or will the large distance through the USB cable lessen the speed / signal anyway?

Thanks in advance.

Using a 6m - 10m US extension cable should not cause a problem, use a good quality USB cable

I thought USB extension was limited to 5m and only beyond that with a special extender unit, or a specialised cat5e USB extender unit for long lengths.
