    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.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    • PhilP,
    •  Newmarket, ON 
    • 7/23/2016 3:27:30 PM

    Pros: Simple to set up

    Cons: Picky as to sequence of plugins. I had powered it on and then added the printers, no USB lights on the front came on. I power cycled and used toe reset then all was fine.

    I have several areas in the house wired with cat5e ethernet from a den/server room, and I wanted to move the printers from that area to another already wired. This product does exactly that. It's a bit confusing that material suggests it is also wireless, but that didn't matter to me since I wanted wired anyway. There is a bit of lag between sending a document to print and when it actually starts, but I can certainly live with that :)

    Ordered two of these. Both have constant problems

    • Anonymous,

    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!

    Semi wireless print server

    • Anonymous,
    •  Westmoreland, co 
    • 2/25/2015 6:51:56 PM

    Pros: The device is well made and compact and stylish.

    Cons: It connects to the internet via 10 base T (LAN) connection however and is not wireless in that respect.

    The sales info needs to be clear that this device is really not a wireless device. I will need to return this product due to misleading sales info. I needed a wireless connection to the internet to the print server so it could be placed near the printers which have no nearby LAN connection available. If you need a totally wireless solution this will not work for you.

    by Monoprice Administrator

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear PID 6041 did not work out for your setup. That is correct, this USB print server does need to be hardwired to the router and USB devices. The wireless connectivity would only refer to the computers. We unfortunately do not offer any USB print servers that would connect to the router wirelessly at this time. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up a return RMA. If you wish to proceed with the RMA, just let me know and I can get that started right away. My apologies again for the trouble and I hope this helps!

    Disappointing as a Server

    • Anonymous,
    •  Danville, VA 
    • 2/24/2015 1:09:04 PM

    Pros: Device does connect to the network and pull an IP via DHCP on first power up with no user intervention required. That is it, the only bright spot to this device.

    Cons: Lack of Web based GUI management of devices. The only web based management features are the ability to reboot, assign a password and static IP. Lack of ability to connect to any shares without a Windows based driver/software package. Lack of "server" features, such as mapping of networked shares or drives. Addition of a usb management system introduced into a system which already has usb management. Basically everything.

    I'm very disappointed as this isn't really a server at all, but more of a network connector to usb devices. A server would share devices over the network and allow for proper mapping of drives or shares. This device is basically a networked usb management device. All operating systems come with a built in usb management system so no additional software should be required to attached to a networked usb device. This device actually shows you the connected usb devices via the web gui, but has no mechanism to access the share without using the software management package. The software on the device itself is obviously of insufficient design as it should just live on the network and share what ever is connected to it. There are a few "servers" on the market which are true servers, skip this if you want a server, purchase it if you wish to have an additional usb management system installed on your pc. Very poor design and implementation. I expected better.

    Perfect Little Device

    Pros: I loved the compact design when I saw it online and then when it arrived it fit perfectly on the desk. Of course even better is that it does as it is designed to. I needed a network USB hub for my Dymo printer. This works great over the network.

    Cons: N/A
