Extending USB cable for S61 MK2 Keyboard with ethernet not working.

I'm using a S61 MK2 Keyboard. I need to extend my usb about 30 feet. I do have ethernet extenders with USB but they don't work. They work for a mouse, etc, but not for the Komplete keyboard. One thing is they are not powered. Before I buy some that are powered, has anyone been successful at extended their Komplete keyboard?

Thanks in advance

    You need a powered USB hub while using long cables. The signals from long cables are too low.

    Also keep in mind to check specs, not all extended usb cables or baluns support a full usb data thruput and are often designed for low data stuff like a mouse and keyboard or a printer and may not work with things like a hard drive or Komplete/Maschine controller. Just be sure to get ones designed to work for your needs.
