Here’s an interesting little $80 device USB device that supports hard/flash drives, memory card reader, USB webcams, USB speakers and USB Multi-Function printers, all over Etherent. It looks like Windows only and although it supports 4 USB devices it’s only got a single USB port so you’re going to need to add a hub.
Because the unit includes Multi-Function Printer sharing, any user can print, scan, or fax from any computer in their home. The USB ShareStation also supports a USB 2.0 Hub extension, which can support up to 4 USB devices over your home or office IP network. 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 IOGEAR’s USB Net ShareStation 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.”
