Alfa 5M 16ft USB Active Repeater Extension Cable Type A Male to Female



Alfa AUSBC-5m is a 5m (16 feet) active repeater USB extension cable. An active repeater cable is a special type of USB cable that buffers power over the distance of the cable. Standard passive extension cables- the kind you may find online or in office supply stores for a few bucks- do not buffer the power signal and lose power over the cable length. This means they cannot offer enough power for high consumption devices, such as Alfa's line of long range Wi-Fi USB networking adapters including AWUS036H, AWUS036NH, and AWUS036NHR. This also has special shielding to insulate against power loss- you will notice out of the package it is quite a bit thicker than standard USB cables.

This cable allows you to place your long range W-Fi adapter (or any USB device for that matter) up to 16 feet away from the computer. If your computer is located away from a window, use this cable to put your Wi-Fi adapter closer to the window for improved reception.

- USB type A male to female
- Works with any type of USB adapter including flash drives, USB Wi-Fi adapters, etc.
- Operating system independent (use with Mac, Linux, Windows, any computer with a compatible USB port)
- USB 2.0 and 1.1 compliant


*FREE BONUS: Using an active repeater cable in conjunction with a standard passive 5 or 6 foot USB to USB mini cable can sometimes result in unstable connectivity on some USB ports. If you experience any disconnect from the computer of your Wi-Fi device when using this cable, use the included USB male to USB mini converter included free with this sale instead of the standard USB cable you already have. This piece allows you to connect the active repeater cable directly to Wi-Fi USB adapters that have a USB mini connector.
