I want to run a printer in another room in my house WITHOUT networking. My needs require a direction USB connection. Will I have trouble running a USB beyond a certain length of cabling?
I have used a 15' USB extension cable successfully to bring my printer to the oposite side of my office. Beyond that you can get a USB repeater cable
5m is the maximum officially supported cable length, and you can chain several cables using at most five hubs, which gets you at most 30m.
