RealSense is very sensitive to the state of the USB port. It doesn't even like USB extension cables longer than 1 m unless they are very high quality, and even with a high-grade cable the maximum tends to be 2m. I cannot absolutely rule out the possibility of it working, but there is a much bigger chance that it won't work. The rule that I apply in these situations is to give it a try only if you can afford to write off the cost of the adapter if the experiment does not work.
Thanks for your response!
