I have an Alfa AWUS036H adapter connected to a 15dBi 2.4Ghz Omni-Directional antenna mounted on an antenna pole on my boat.   The adapter is connected to an approximate 15′ cable, which in turn is connected to 10 meter USB 2.0 Active Repeater Extension Cable.  Recently, I bought a new computer.
Now, my reception is very intermittent and brief.  Not usable.  I replaced the extension cable, but there was no improvement.
However, when I replaced the 10 meter extension cable with a 12′ USB cable, everyting works fine.  Unfortunately, I need a longer cable run.  Is there a viable solution?
ANSWER:  The max length for non-active USB cables is about 15 ft.  You have to use active cable(s) for all the distance to go more than 15FT.

We suggest this 10-meter cable:
