FAQs

How does it work?

The Belkin Network USB Hub works by installing software that makes devices appear to be connected directly through each computer's USB ports. Which devices does the Belkin Network USB Hub support?

The Hub is designed specifically for printers and mass-storage devices. It also works for most other USB devices, including most standard webcams, keyboards and mice, multifunction machines, scanners, and media readers. Please note: some high-speed isochronous devices, such as high-definition webcams and video docking stations, may not be compatible with the Hub. How does the Belkin Network USB Hub support multiple users?

The convenience of direct USB-connection emulation requires that only one user be linked to each device at a time. To make this seamless for printers, the Hub automatically disconnects users after sending a print job, so that other users can print. For other devices, the software allows users to contact others on the network to request that they disconnect from a device. Is the Belkin Network USB Hub compatible with any network?

Yes. However, keep in mind that the quality of the connection of a computer to the devices on the Hub depends upon the speed of the wireless network. Can I use other USB hubs on the Network USB Hub?

Yes. The Hub allows you to "daisy-chain" other USB hubs. The driver supports a total of 15 connections at a time on the Hub.

How do firewalls impact the Network USB Hub?

If users have the Windows firewall activated, the Network USB Hub will automatically detect this and ask the user if he or she wishes to allow the Hub to work from behind the firewall. Users of other firewalls must manually add the device driver to their list of allowed programs, allowing the Hub to work. Will the Network USB Hub work with a computer on a Virtual Private Network (VPN)? No. The Network USB Hub requires VPNs to be turned off in order for it to function. High-speed isochronous devices (such as high-definition webcams and video docking stations) may not be compatible with the Network USB Hub. *Distance limitation depends on the range of your wireless router

Isn't it about £56-£57? 10% of the difference rather than 10% of the price!

Could really do with one of these because I have an external HD but want to make it a NAS. This would be good to put a printer onto also.

But is it mac compatible?

I can never get onto the Belkin site, takes forever to load!

Kind of - Belkin have released an update for the software and drivers (no Leopard support yet though). Quoted from Belkin's website:

"This is an update for the software and drivers for the Network USB Hub F5L009. The software version is 1.4.0. The Windows version of the software now supports the 64-bit editions of Windows XP and Vista; the Mac OS version of the software is new and offers support for Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4. Please be aware that the software does not yet support OS 10.5 Leopard."

Shame that, looks like I'm going to have to wait until it gets updated again. Is there any other product on the market that does exactly the same thing as this? I've not seen any.
