Extending VIVE wireless

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am moving my computer to a different room but would like to keep my wireless vr setup in the room my computer is currently in so I need to extend the VIVE wireless satellite. I found several threads on Reddit and vive’s website saying that you can use a pcie to usb extender and use up to a 20ft cable which I only needed 18 feet but I couldn’t find one of those. I tried two different usb 3.0 cables that were 20 ft and they didn’t work and like I mentioned I only need eighteen but I can’t find one that length so would a 15 and 3 foot together work or is there any signal loss in the connection between two usb cables?

A connector between a 15ft cable and a 3ft cable is even worse than a single 20ft cable.


You might need to find an active cable.
