I have an USB mouse and keyboard, both of which have a cable 1.8m long. However for my purposes this is too short.
I read that USB standard limits the length of a cable to 5 meters for high speed devices and 3 meters for low speed devices. I guess that both mouse and keyboard belong into the low speed ones.
I measured that I need 1.2 more meters. However there are no 1.2m USB cables available in the shops I have access to, only 1m or 1.8m.
When I buy the 1.8m USB cable, will it work? Or do I have to look for active USB extenders with own power supply?
And What about the standard USB hubs? What if I connect both mouse and keyboard to an hub and that one will be connected to the extending USB cable, will it extend the range at least a bit?
