I have an USB camera from Microsoft that is too far away from the computer(10 meters along the wall) that I want to connect to.
And as we know that the maximum length of an USB 2.0 cable can be 7 meters I purchased 2 x USB to Fast Ethernet adapters and used one to plug the usb camera into the wall RJ-45 port and one from the table where the computer is to switch back from RJ-45 to USB.
I used a normal patch cord to connect the 2 ports in the patch panel.
But it does not work: it says the device is not recognized.
What can be the problem: should I try different patch cord wiring ?
Another problem might be the distance between the 2 ports: from one to another through the patch panel it may be over 100 meters.
I am open to suggestions :)
