Iogear Net ShareStation

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.

“IOGEAR’s new palm-sized USB Net ShareStation 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 USB Net ShareStation 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. 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.”   [Via:]
