Usb 2.0 active extension cable

Hi i just got a new 10m extension cable for my printer it is plug and play and windows installed the driver no problem, but i keep losing my internet connection it is saying server not found and i was not having this problem until i fittted the cable so i am guesing the cable is the cause but i didn't think that an extension would cause this problem any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
