The adapter works fine when connected directkly to the usb connection on my PC. It can locate several networks in the area. When I use the extension base it cannot locate any networks and will not connect to my own network? Any thoughts on why the difference with the extension?
How long are your cables? USB was designed to have a maximum cable length of about 3 to 5 meters. If your total USB cable length is 10 feet or more, you probably need to use a powered USB hub as an extension base about every 10 feet.
