10 port usb hub on network(possibly wifi compatible)


#1

is it possible to attach the 10 port usb hub to my network using a usb network adapter? that way my other devices would be to access the usb devices directly through the hub.

Hi Dylan,

Thanks for asking! No, USB ethernet adapters (like our http://plugable.com/products/usb2-e100 or http://plugable.com/products/usb2-e1000) are for adding a network interface (another RJ45 Ethernet jack) to a PC.

So they won’t help to connect a hub with many USB devices, over the network.

There are products out there which do this http://www.icron.com/products/usb_new… but they are expensive and have some limitations.

Generally, you’ll want to stick with USB connectivity for USB devices. Bridging USB over other wiring (and especially wireless) is tricky.

Sorry for the bad news, but hope that helps!
Bernie
