Rated 5 out of 5 by mary from Works with Wi-Fi adapter Since I can only pick up my community's wi-fi signal on one side of my condo unit near a window, I position my wi-fi adapter near the window, and use this cable to connect the adapter to my desktop computer which is about 40 feet away. There doesn't appear to be any degradation of the data transmission rate over that distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rylo from Works as advertised I am using this to run a Logitech c910 HS Web Cam. I needed a longer cable to mount this above the projection screen and still hide the wires in the attic/wall. It has no issues with the camera, I can still broadcast in 720p and record in 1080p over 12 meters of USB. I'm just curious now what is different about this technology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Engineer Don from Works great - great length We use these cables as 12m extensions for webcams on an outdoor test setup. The cables have been used off and on for the past month and have given no problems.

Can I use this to connect an external HD with a Blu-ray player to stream movies from my drive? If my external drive has additional USB ports on it, could I use a M2M USB cord to connect to this so I don't even have to unplug the HD from my CPU?
Asked by: Pariah
Our product allows USB 2.0 standard data transmissions. If your devices allow this type of transmission for video playback then the cable should work for you.

Will this Active extension cable send "touch" functionality from a PC to a IFP at 39'? I normally use a 16' usb A to B from IFP to PC to give IFP touch functionality.
Asked by: jason the USB
This will work the same way as the other actives and will send 2.0 signal the full length of the cable.

I want to connect to and provide power for a camera with this cable. Does it transmit power?
Asked by: David
Yes it does transmit power. That adapter will consume 100mA of power to boost the signal. So it will potentially have 400mA of power left over to power a device.

I believe my computer is asking for a driver to use this cable because of the booster. Is this correct? Windows isn't finding the driver automatically. I found USB cable drivers on your site but can't identify correct one if needed. Thanks
Asked by: Ted
This is a plug and play device. It uses the USB generic hub that is built into the Windows OS. I would recommend trying a different USB or possibly a different computer to see if the USB extender is functioning correctly.

Is this cable compatible with Windows 10? We recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Since then our printer, which is connected to existing USB repeater cables, does not work. I suspect the cables are not being recognized by the operating system.
Asked by: Len
Yes this will work with Windows 10
