DIY: Create USB Dongle to Run USB Over CAT5 Cable

Icron is the leader in professional extensions for USB technology where a company or corporation is looking to run data via USB over an extended amount of length.  Generally USB is goof for about 12 feet or so, but with Icron you can run over 300 feet of USB.  Yet, there is a middle ground for those who need more than 12 feet and less than 40 feet for USB data transmittal applications.  A good example is a small business or home business who’s looking to run a USB webcam at the front door for security.

Albeit you can get some WiFi webcams you may want to build something yourself for only pennies.  Today, we have a nice tutorial for you to build a USB dongle for a CAT5 cable to run USB data transfers.  The CAT5 DIY project will double your USB cable length and get you to about 30 or 35 feet of distance.This project is best suited for video and audio transfers for extended S-Video applications or webcam applications.  I found this tutorial on Instructables.

Enjoy.
