I bought 2 7-Port USB 3.0 hubs and they work great with my new Mac. But I’d like a little more reach so I bought some 6’ 3.0 USB data cables (Cable Matter brand) to go with them (I received 4 total, long story).
When I use one of these 6’ cables with the hub, nothing seems to work right. For instance, the wireless mouse, whose receiver is plugged into the hub, “freezes” (stops moving) every few seconds. My Yeti mic would not work when plugged into the hub. If I switch back to the supplied 3’ cable, everything works great. I’ve tried different combinations of hubs and 6’ cables with the same results so I don’t think it’s case of a bad hub or cables.
Any reason this hub should not work with a 6’ cable?
