Anyone had any experience with this concept ? The idea is you can extend the distance of your USB peripherals by piggy-backing it through an exiting ethernet cable. There's a male and female adaptor, and you simply connect one to your PC and a small patch cable to the wall port, and the reverse at the other end. And voila - you can leave your USB printer or camera or whatever in another part of the building, as if its connected by USB all the way. I've bought 3 different sets of adaptors to achieve this so far. From DealXtreme. One didn't work at all, the other 2 worked for a while then seriously overheated and gave up. And I mean - molten plastic dripping onto the carpet. I have no theories, other than they drew too much power and overheated. I didn't even get to do much with them. Just attached a tiny web-cam and left it for a while. One was too hot to touch after about 5 minutes, the other worked for a good half hour before self destructing. I can't even return them now. PS. Also, they only seemed to work on selected ports in the building, even though many ports are active and can take PCs, laptops, printers, TV, etc.
