My MacBook Pro wireless broke, and so did the headphone jack.

I bought a wireless adapter which sticks out of a USB port an inch. I bought a headphone adapter which goes into the remaining USB port, next to the other. It is fairly fat, and with both plugged in, they push against each other, and the headphone adapter is crooked. It all works, but it's a strain on the electronics.

I need a regular size USB male plug to go into the computer. It should have either a female USB on the other end, or a short wire with a female USB. My computer is late 2008. Any ideas? I have looked but can't find anything. Thanks in advance.

Forgot to say, I don't want a USB hub.

Would a USB extension cord work? For only $0.70 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 1.5ft USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Extension 28/24AWG Cable (Gold Plated) - WHITE
