Very Important To Understand This!!!
on 2 May 2009
This is a great item, but I suspect that many other may make the same error that I did. THIS DEVICE IS NOT WIRELESS ITSELF. It must be connected to your router physically using an ethernet cable. I jumped the gun and though that I could place the USB device in my bedroom whilst the wireless router was in the lounge... sooo wrong.
Apart from that, it works great and I have my printer shared accross the net without having to switch on the main computer. Also my external hard drive is connected and shared, but beware transfer speeds.
It was my mistake that I didnt read the specs properly, but I think others will make the same mistake. As long as you are happy to have this USB hub connected by an ethernet cable then it is fine.
