Hi guys.

I've got my Dell U2713HM's USB hub connecting via a 3 meter USB 3.0 cable, to a 5 meter USB 2.0 extension cable(simple male to female) to my computer.

At first I got 2-3 disconnects a day, where my keyboard+mouse(connecting to my monitors USB hub)) would disconnect and then reconnect ~5 seconds later, then after a few days it stopped happening and worked flawlessly for a couple of days. Then I took 6 days off and didn't use my computer at all. Since then, I get these disconnects every ~30 seconds.

Even though I've got nothing plugged into the monitor, I still get to USB disconnecting/connecting sound. I tried using an active USB 2.0 5 meter cable(with a repeater) but that doesn't even give me any signal to the monitor. I've fiddled with every power saving settings I can find, to no avail.

Would I need to get an active USB 3.0 repeater cable to get flawless signal to my monitor?
Any other suggestions?
Foinally!
