Extend a Wifi dongle ~4M (And keep USB 2.0)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
If you were looking to do this, how would you? Extending the dongle with regular USB extenders causes it to drop to USB 1.0, so is there a solution which allows me to keep the higher speed, since the internet connection is quicker than the 1MB/s transfer speed of the cable set-up in question.

I wouldn't, actually. For the cost of the the extenders, I would buy a router capable of running DD-WRT and turn it into a wireless bridge. Wireless functionality is performed by the bridge hardware, and you connect your system to it using standard ethernet cabling.
