USB extension cable

Postby Kaos Kid » Sat Oct 22, 2016 8:07 pm

Duh, stupid question but I'm dysexlic ;) and my head hurts so help me out please...I want to get a USB 3.0 extension cable because a new USB wireless adapter I got is so big it covers 2 slots, and sticks out so much it looks to be easily breakable. Should I be looking for male to female, or female to male?

That's what I figured, I guess it doesn't matter which end is which as long as there are one of each. (I left this one open for a drive-by lol)

Thanks!

This is what I ended up ordering, since it is for a wireless USB adapter stick I thought it would act as a base better than just having the stick plugged in at the end of a cable.
