    I'm using the Logitech keyboard attached via a 10' extender cable (Staples house brand) to a Belkin hub and it works just fine.
    In actuality a 10 foot extender cable is well within the length limits for a high speed USB cable which can extend up to 16 feet from the hub.
    The line on the keyboard is about 5 feet so the 10 additional feet is well within the usb limits. Test that cable on another usb device hooked to your computer and make sure the cable isn't faulty.

    From the USB.org website
    Q1: How long of a cable can I use to connect my device?
    A1: In practice, the USB specification limits the length of a cable between full speed devices to 5 meters (a little under 16 feet 5 inches). For a low speed device the limit is 3 meters (9 feet 10 inches).

    Q2: Why can't I use a cable longer than 3 or 5m?
    A2: USB's electrical design doesn't allow it. When USB was designed, a decision was made to handle the propagation of electromagnetic fields on USB data lines in a way that limited the maximum length of a USB cable to something in the range of 4m. This method has a number of advantages and, since USB is intended for a desktop environment, the range limitations were deemed acceptable. If you're familiar with transmission line theory and want more detail on this topic, take a look at the USB signals section of the developers FAQ.

    it might be the cable,but i have to test it tomorrow. this is the extender i bought. http://www.amazon.com/USB-Extender-4...2336520&sr=8-1
