Re: Can I use a long USB cable?

5 m is the limit for usb, you can use a powered usb hub and go for another 5 m but that's a big mess with al the powercords and usb cords.

I use a 12m ethernet cable and it works fine. I had some problems with the wireless connection from my Macbook to my router (it was not reliable enough) I connected my Macbook also with an ethernetcable and now aeveytihng works stable. I wouldn't try usb for more then 5 m.
