    Best to keep USB extension cable around 1 meter. Now I have had issues using a 2 meter cable, however other users claim of no problems.

  • 10 feet is the established max for a normal USB cable. There are active extension cables if you need to go farther. The keyboard and mouse should not go through a USB hub though and a active extension is like a hub.
