Model: Archer TXE75E  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I just bought an Archer TXE72E WiFi/bluetooth adapter.  The cord that came with it is too short to reach from the USB header to the adapter.  (There's a massive graphics card between the header and the available slot.  Moving the graphics card is not an option.)  Where can I buy another cable?  We tried splicing the cable into the 18-inch female to female 9-pin cable that was in an old card, but it didn't work.  So I'll need a new cable, even if it's the same length as the one that came with the adapter.  Someone suggested getting a M to F 9-pin extender cable, which would be an acceptable solution.  An 18-inch cable total is about what I need to get past the graphics card.  I've tried looking online for a new cable, but the 4-pin end of the ones I found looks too big.  Is there a specification name for the small connector on that cable?

Hi, Thank you very much for the feedback.

Currently, I only find the cable is 4 pin-9 pin F_USB cable, no more other specifications. I will check with the engineers to see if they could provide more details.

Best regards.

 

Update:

big black connector; 2*5 pins, the pins are spaced 2.76 mm apart
small white connector; 4 pins, the pins are spaced 1.25 mm apart; UL94V-0 51021

Good news.  The second attempt at splicing the cable worked.  This time, we soldered the ends of the cut wires together.  It's really ugly, but it works.  But hey, when one lives out in the middle of nowhere, one must be resourceful.

 

I'd still like to know the complete specifications of the small end of the cable in case it stops working.

 

Thanks.
