|Networking USB 2.0 Print Server - Share 4 USB Devices|
|Question: Why do I need a network server just to connect my printer or USB device? Can''t I just use a cheaper USB to network adapter?|
|Answer: Devices with USB ports will either be hosts or peripherals. Host devices, like computers have drivers loaded on them so that they can control the functions of the peripheral device. Peripheral devices like printers, external storage and cameras can not interface with a system without a server to host them. The simple USB ethernet adapters used to connect a computer to a network is hosted by the computer it is connected to, it itself can not host another device.|
|Question: What''s the difference between PID# 5342, 5343 and 5344?|
|Answer: While all are servers used to host peripheral devices on a network, the key difference is as follows: |
PID# 5342 is primarily a Printer Service. It is a function specific device that is only designed to host the print function of printers.
PID# 5343 is can host several different types of USB devices on a network including multifunction printers, webcams, hard drives, etc.
PID# 5344 can host not only serveral types of devices, it can host up to 4 devices simultaneously using a USB hub.
|Question: How does the server allow me to access the connected device wirelessly?|
|Answer: The connected USB device must be connected to the server with a usb cable and the server must be connected to a router with an ethernet cable, however if you have a wireless router or wifi access point on your network, your computers can wirelessly access the network.|
