usb cable for mifi

Where do I purchase a longer cord for the mifi when I connect to my pc.  I realize it is a wireless device but like to use it on my pc as well.  The connection is so poor I think mainly because the cord is so short I can not get the device away from my computer/work desk when I plug into my USB port to obtain any reception.  There are so many choices I'm afraid that I will get the wrong one.  Thanks

We use our MiFi wirelessly and the connection is very poor even in a window.  We have 4 bars on our phones and our Mifi but the connection speed is often slower than dial-up.  A longer cord would be a great idea if anyone from Verizon is reading and actually cares.

It's an absolutely standard USB cable. You can get one at any computer store.

You WIFI connection is way faster than your 3G connection to Verizon. You would probably be better off to put the WIFI near a window to improve your 3G connection speed. Get a wireless broadband card for your PC.

The OP said nothing about having a WiFi connecton available. Only asked about a tethered MiFi.

MIFI has WIFI capability to connect to laptops and computers. I suggested he/she get a wireless internet adapter to connect via WIFI to the MIFI. I should have said "put the MIFI near the window." Also, I meant to say "wireless internet adapter, not wireless broadband card."
