Data Cable Length

I just finished putting my new Graphtec FC7000-130 together and the usb cable is too short. Does anyone know what the longest data cable I can use without causing communication errors.

Thanks,
Mark

15 and 16 foot lengths seem to be pretty commonly offered. There are also signal boosters available if you can't get by with that.

Tiger Direct has 74 different products in the category.

I have a 16' or so extender on my FC7000-75 original cable with nary a problem. USB can go a goodly ways. It's the Centronics parallel cable that has some serious length issues.

time for a blue tooth wireless usb adapter..

Blue tooth is suseptable to interference (if you have ever used a USB head set on a cell phone) and it doesn't offer re-train capability. The Wi-FI USB-->Ethernet Ap adapters work great for making anything USB completely wireless :)
