Excerpt: I have used this items on 2 accounts that run a desktop and a stand alone server that don't exist on the same network. This switch loads off a mini-CD and once loaded works as advertised. No issues and switching between computers is straight forward.
Excerpt: My apartment building converted to an all-wi-fi set-up.I have 2 wi-fi ready computers and an older Canon all-in-one-printer that's not wi-fi. B&H suggested the GUB211 and it's proven to be the perfect sollution, essentially a USB version of an old phone line splitter.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Inexpensive, Let Me Update Old Printer, Small
Excerpt: We tried other 2 Part Switches which did not work! Went to Dell site to see was they showed in their store since both our computers are Dell. It was an Iogear so that is where we went. Easy to install and great software to switch works the first time!
Summary: I'd down rate it about a half a star, if I could because it took multiple reboots to get the automatic function to work properly, BUT it works fine with my Canon MX922 all in one for all its functions, once set up.
Excerpt: Desktop with XP (no wireless printer) is old but wanted to keep & print from. New laptop to share printer. Called support, to be sure, before install as instructed. Person told me to download software to both from IOGEAR site would function best. This was good info.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Quality Accessories, Reliable Performance, Sleek Design
Summary: After installing software & setting up switch correcxtly it would not work. I called IOGEAR a total of 5 times. The first three techs said the switch was flawess and the problem was mine. The forth said there were some setting in the printer files on both computers that needed to be changed.
Summary: Disappointing... It never switches between machines. Stays connected to the computer that prints to it first until the computer is rebooted. To be fair, it could be the specific printer or the print drivers keeping the connection alive, but I ended up sacking it and getting an A/B switch.
