USB HUB With Network

author Posted by: George on date May 20th, 2010 | filed Filed under: Hub, Networking

OK this is a little device for special users and there are not to many out there that will need this but I am sure there are some.

This is a 3 port USB HUB nothing special there the USB ports swivel so that it will be easier to plug your USB devices in. But it is more then just a HUB.

Next to the USB ports it also offers an RJ45 network port. If you computer is missing an physical network port then this could be the solution. For instance if you have a Macbook Air with only 1 USB port then this is great it gives you a real network port and 3 USB ports instead of one.

Sick of carrying all those different patch cables in your kit?

Now there is an solution for that with this Universal Network Cable.

It is easy just plug it in as a normal RJ45 cable and you can connect a default cable on the other side. And now you can by turning the switch change you cable to:

  • STRAIGHT-THROUGH: Use as a standard RJ45 patch cable
  • CROSSOVER: Communicate directly between computers without a hub or switch
  • ROLLED: Connect a host to a Cisco router or switch
  • T1: Connect to DDS lines / T1 trunk lines
  • ATM/LOOPBACK: Test if a network card is working by checking for link lights with no need for a hub or switch

Doesn’t that sound nice to have? It has a place in my kit from now on.
