    I rearranged my computer layout---
    moved a new cabinet in to the corner of the room.
    so now my desktop tower is beside the cabinet.
    I moved it there for better air-flow & less chance of having the tower
    knocked off the desk I had it setting on. kids in house.
    so now I need about 15 feet of USB cable to plug my mouse in---
    run behind the desk // behind the cabinet to the tower--

    is anybody with a gaming mouse running theirs through a powered usb hub ???
    New Egg sales 15 foot of USB cable but all the reviews say they have problems
    with windows not detecting the Data packets over that long a cable.
    people talk about using Ethernet cable to usb adapters but that seems to only handle
    1.1 usb data rates instead of 2.0

    is anybody happy with a gaming wireless mouse ???
    need a solution

    Don't know if I can help you (Not a Gamer), but I do have a wireless mouse that I've connected to a powered USB 2.0 hub and it works fine. Its a good 10'-12' away from the mouse.
