Simple, effective, inexpensive solution

Ron the psychologist, B&H Photo
17 February 2015
  • 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

A must for multi-use of Printers

JimB, Staples
16 January 2015
  • 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!

Piece of Junk

Robert J., Newegg
30 December 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Have it hooked up to a XP box and a Win 7 box. Win 7 takes ownership of the switch and can not be switched to XP box. Sending it back and buying a different brand.

I'm really happy with this simple product

John Smith "Why-not", Amazon
25 June 2014
  • 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.

,, TigerDirect.com
6 April 2014
  • 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.

Won't switch between computers

Dave C., Amazon
29 March 2014
  • 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.
