Networking USB 2.0 Print Server - Share 4 USB Devices

This new palm-sized Networking USB 2.0 Share enables an external hard drive, flash drive, memory card reader, USB webcam, USB speaker, or USB Multi-Function Printer (MFP) to be shared on a network. With the versatility afforded by the USB Share Station, users can now enjoy their favorite multimedia content stored on their computer from anywhere in their home or office. A user can attach a standard USB webcam to the Networking USB 2.0 Share as a simple and low cost security monitoring solution for their home and/or small office use.

Because the unit includes Multi-Function Printer sharing, any user can print, scan, or fax from any computer in their home. This also supports a USB 2.0 Hub extension, which can support up to 4 USB devices over your home or office IP network.  (4 port hub is not included and must be purchased separately)  It complies with USB 2.0 specifications, and provides users with an auto-sensing 10/100Base-T port. The print server will even automatically identify your printer make/model upon connection.

When connecting this to a wireless router, users can access their multimedia content and USB devices wirelessly. The UPnP technology enables quick and easy setup and configuration in a Windows Vista environment. It is a one-stop-shop for multi-functional network peripheral sharing and the number of applications is practically endless.

Note: Users may not achieve optimum audio/video streaming performance when connecting to this through a wireless Ethernet router.

Ordered two of these. Both have constant problems

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Constantly needs to be turned off and back on again.

Like many other reviewers have mentioned, these have terrible reliability. They have to be power cycled once an hour, unless they are frequently used. There is no firmware or driver updates available to fix this problem. I do NOT recommend this or any of the other USB extenders/servers that Monoprice sells because they ALL have this problem, according to many reviews here on the site. I'm a big fan of Monoprice, but this product is terrible and Monoprice has done nothing to address the problem, in the several years that this problem has been reported.

Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered. I do recommend to keep this print server in an area free from dust and debris as well as good air circulation so they do not overheat. When did you order this item as it does have a 1 year warranty if you want to try a replacement. Please let me know, thank you!

Worked better than could imagine.

  • Daniel Arscott,

Pros: - Software included was perfect.
- went into project thinking I would not get this to work. With time and network knowledge I succeeded.
- Printer that I was able to share was not on compatibility list.
- Branded equivalent for my brand printer is $300.00 plus

Cons: - Setup not for everyday user.

I'm an IT professional so I took a stab at using this to share a Known not network friendly printer:
- Zebra Thermal Label Printer 2844. (Prints UPS labels using UPS drivers.)
- Must install using the provider USB server software to define network specifications then I was off to the running.
- Must install the shared usb printer as an LPR printer. which worked amazingly from the included Network Printer Wizard app also included.
- Do yourself a favor and get the monoprice drivers/app on a shared drive or thumbdrive to deploy the printer. Installs LPR printer very easily due to its ability to single out the monoprice device.
If I have a need again, I will definitely repurchase. Has been installed and used by 4 users for a week.
Thanks again monoprice.

Easy Print Server Setup

Pros: Worked very well with my Brother printer on a small home network of four computers.

Cons: None

Very easy and fast setup. The software included found the print server on the network and installed the attached printer on all computers with no problems. A better experience than with an expensive network printer that has been very difficult to integrate into my network.

Not ready for prime time

  • Joe M,

Pros: It can actually work

Cons: Poor documentation. Very difficult to remove software from OS. Clients must all have software installed to access it.

I wanted to use this device for classroom network attached storage (NAS). I was hoping it would install itself on the network as a self-contained share, but that's not the case. You must first install the client software on each machine (thus rendering it useless for me). Even worse, you get two options: "Windows v1.2" and "Windows 2000". V1.2 crashed every machine, Windows 2000 (what?, this is 2012!) worked, but not well on most other machines. I can't prove cause and effect, but I began to have USB keyboard problems after the client software was installed, and the problem went away when I removed the client. This is probably a decent item for a home network, but I wouldn't trust it anywhere else. I personally, and my school, have purchased $1000's of dollars of items from Monoprice. This unit is not the quality we usually get. To be fair to Monoprice, the CS rep did offer a refund.
