Connect cameras via USB extender over Ethernet

Hello. Has anyone had success connecting the cameras this way?
These devices do not need a network, they just connect the two extender boxes together.
I have been looking at either the ICRON Ranger 2304 or a similar one by Blackbox.
My cameras are the asi185mc for guiding (and planetary), and the asi1600mc-cooled for imaging.
I will also be connecting an Optec TCF-Si focuser.
The distance for my buried Cat 5 (shielded twisted pair) cable is over 350".
The better extenders recommend no more than 330', for UTP cable.
I will be using an iMac, in my office to control all the devices (the scope uses Ethernet).
I prefer to not use an at the scope computer.
Any advice?

Sorry, Fivel.
It's beyond my knowledge, I don't know about it.

The USB extender will help you to extend your WIFI signal which will carry the signal to a long distance. If you want to Setup Netgear Router Extender then you can check it and get help from there. An extender is basically used in the home or even in the business area.
