I was hoping for some input regarding using a Club3D USB 3.2 Gen2 Type A Extension Cable 10Gbps M/F 5m/16.40ft (https://www.club-3d.com/en/detail/2508/usb_3.2_gen2_type_a_extension_cable_10gbps_m-f_5m-16.40ft/) to extend the antenna of my USB-AX56 (a 802.11ax usb wifi adapter). I am reading stories on how older type usb cables with this length weren’t able to process data properly. In my case my internet connection depends on it. I need to exend the antenna. 3 meter will do probably, but a 5 meter extension means I am able to work the cable through a thin wall which means I can put the antenna in direct view of my Unifi AP).
Purely looking at throughput max my motherboard (usb port), the wifi adapter and the usb 3.2 gen 2 extension cable should theoretically be able to reach maximum throughput speeds (based on max througput from my Unifi AP which is nearby).
Will this setup work properly? Hope there are people with similar setup/experiences….:)
