Quest 2 link cable connection freezing after a few seconds

Honored Guest

I have recently received a new unofficial link cable because my previous one was too short. When I tried the new cable, it only worked for a few seconds but then it freezes and then I have to reconnect it for it to work again. I have tried the cable on my brother's PC, and the cable worked fine. The previous cable worked on my PC too so I don't know why the new one only works on my brother's and not mine. I suspect that my computer is disabling the cable because it's drawing too much power, but I'm pretty sure I have set my computer to not disable USB connections
