This device re-pins usb to cat5 so that you can essentially use a long USB cable. It works, but as many people have said it dumbs down the USB speed to version 1 which makes it utterly useless for anything but keyboards and mice. However I did a little thinking ad realized to issue is most likely one of signal strength over distance. Buy a strong Powered USB HUB and use it before the extender and it works like a charm!
Product does not inform you of the need for a more powerful usb port or hub. Most people will think this product does not work as advertised and it really doesn't. Its not the adapter's fault its doing all it can do you just need an extra Item to get usb 2.0 speeds and that should be more clear on documentation!
Buy a good powered USB hub and this works at USB 2.0 speeds!
