    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.

    Great addition
    Got this to print from multiple computers at home. Pain plugging & unplugging different devices all the time. Connected it to router, ran the software on computers and thats it. Just remember to change ur default printer.

    5/5
    I was a little hesitant because of some of the negative reviews, but this unit works. I bought a second unit for the in-laws. Solves the "I want to print this but I am too lazy to get off the couch and plug my laptop into the printer" problem. The important thing is to have the printer installed on the computer and working when the computer is plugged into the printer, first. Then it's a breeze to use the adapter. I have it running on a Vista and XP machine.

    Solid USB to Ethernet Print Server
    Setup of the software on the host machines was straight forward. Connection of HP ink jet printer and print server was straightforward. Printed over a wireless network on the first try. Running fine for a couple of weeks now.

    Worked better than could imagine.
    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.

    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.

    work good.
    Magic part and work good. install client in your desktop or laptop and when you connect to the usb server you are able to send and receive data from hard drive or send data to your printer. But is very to indicate that this part it does not same the NAS. Because you need to install a client in requester to get or send data.

    Works as advertised. Great deal for the price
    It works as advertised, it is a great deal for its price.

    It also supports the Brother HL-1440 Laser Printer (not included in the list of supported devices).

    I had some minor difficulties trying to install a multi card reader, but after reinstalling the Networking USB server, it worked fine (maybe I did not installed it properly the first time).

    Networking USB 2.0 Print Server
    This is another great deal you can count on from Monoprice. I needed to print remote and found this beauty at Monoprice. I got the #5344 because I know I will need to add an additional 3 more remote USB's to my laptop. I recieved this last night and in 10 min. I had the program up and running on both laptop computers. Interfaced with a Canon Pixma I6600D and Vista O/S Premium Home version. I have looked @ Bestbuy and found prices at $90 and not very good reviews on other types of units.

    Great Networking USB 2.0 server
    So I bought a HP CM1015 all in one laser printer a while back and it's been great. I shared the printer via my computer (Vista 64bit) but it was just missing a network share like the more expensive HP CM1017.

    Enter the Monoprice Networking USB 2.0 Server to save the day. Below is a brief description on how I used\setup the device on my network.

    Printer sharing:
    This required intall of their software. In XP and Vista (including 64bit vista), it was painless and easy. Took about 2 minutes to setup the printer on each of my computers.

    Scanner sharing:
    This required intall of another set of software. This "Networking" software is supposed to let you share other USB devices like a hard drive, webcam, or what have you. I only tried it with my scanner as part of the HP CM1015 AIO printer.

    After installing this, I went to setup the scanner in my scanner software. Picking the CM1015 as device didn't work but selecting the default scanner that it found and I was good. Everything works great.

    The only issue I see with the device sharing is that you can only have one machine take the device at a time. If you want another maching to use that device, you must disconnect it from the machine that has control of it.

    Conclusion:
    Overall, I'm a happy camper. My only wish is that I got this sooner.
