Need keyboard/mouse input from another room. Suggestions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My computer is in one room, but I'd like to be able to use it for gaming on my TV (through HDMI) in my bedroom. My main issue is the keyboard/mouse input. Basically, it's about 20 feet directly from the computer to the TV, but there's a thick wall and a door between the two - plus the extra space from said door/wall and computer/me on the bed. I can't put the desktop in my bedroom (literally no room, and even if, no room to sit down for a wired keyboard/mouse). And I can't afford to build another smaller computer just for gaming.

I've tried Bluetooth, but it was just barely out of range and kept disconnecting or lagging horribly.

I've read that USB has a limit before the signal degrades, and I don't know if that would end up in noticeable keyboard/mouse lag at the distance I'd be looking at - about 30 feet if I route the extension on the floor, or about 40 feet if I route it around doorways (which is what I'd prefer), not including the extra lag (if anything noticeable) from the wireless keyboard/mouse (a wired keyboard/mouse would just be too messy). I don't care at all about data transfer speeds, I'd literally only be using the USB extension for a keyboard/mouse set.

Also, is there a way to do USB over ethernet if I already have my lone ethernet port connected to my router, or rather at all? If so, would that ~40 feet over ethernet be a better solution than USB?

Any other solutions out there? Thanks for the help regardless!
