PROS: Good idea
CONS: Did not last long. ( My computer and the Auto Switcher stop communicating)
PROS: Works great, simple setup
PROS: Small compact
PROS: Worked great with our vista machines.
PROS: Solved the wireless connection problem we had w/our HP 8500 Printer not wanting to connect to our new PC and Router. Kept wanting to use old network info.
This SW. plugged into the USB cable from the printer and into the supplied USB cables for the two PC we have. Ran the software and the SW lights up on the side for the PC that is able to print. One or the other by switching from either pc. Small manual makes it clear.
CONS: Now cons, simple to use
PROS: The hardware and cables came quickly and fully wrapped in good condition. After installation the product worked as promised. It took about 10 minutes to hook up the cables and install the software.
PROS: I have bought 4 of these and they all work. Easy to install.
