5 out of 5 eggs Works great, when supplying 5VDC... 04/27/2010

This review is from: IOGEAR GUCE51 USB Ethernet Extender


We performed a detailed test of this product using a 60-ft Cat5e (200 MHz) cable:

* Computer -> USB Extender -> USB Mouse/Keyboard/Stick = Did not work.
* Computer -> USB Extender -> USB Hub (monitor) -> USB Mouse/Keyboard/Stick = Sporadic behavior for the mouse/keyboard; USB hard drive did not work at all.
* Computer -> USB Hub (monitor) -> USB Extender -> USB Mouse/Keyboard/Stick = Mouse and keyboard worked flawlessly, USB hard drive did not work.

Then we connected a 5VDC power source to the receiver, and every configuration worked without problems. We even connected a powered hub on the receiving side: no problems for mouse/keyboard/stick all plugged into the hub and running at the same time.


Does not work well over long distances with no power supplied to receiving end.

Other Thoughts:

IOGEAR should include an AC adapter with this product, even if it raises the price a little.
