From my desktop, that is. Every device I have tried to connect through the cable so far has lit up, as though they got a signal. But the PC cannot recognize the device behind the cable.(Sometimes the message 'The usb device could not be recognized' explicitly shows up on the PC.)
If 5 meter really was the maximum length that would work with the PC, why would TP-Link manufacture the 10 meter one in the first place? The retailer convinced me that 10 meters was a good idea if I want to keep my wifi adapter dongle close to my tablet, then connectify hotspot would let me share my ethernet internet with the tablet.
Should I return the 10 meter cable for two of those 5 meter longs? I suppose putting those two end-to-end would add up to a working 10 meters, right? The retailer warned me it would slow down data transfer "at the joint of those twos", while that slowdown effect would be much less painful if I use a singular 10 meter cable. Is this even true?
