For small businesses, SOHOs and other environments that want to easily share hardware resources, Keyspan's USB Server allows all PCs on a LAN to jointly use the same USB printers, scanners and other USB devices. The USB server can support up to 4 devices, and transmits data at 12 Mbps. The device uses USB 1.1 technology, and the company said it will release a USB 2.0 version in the next twelve months. One minor drawback is that the server does not support simultaneous access to devices. The server can connect to a wired or wireless network using its RJ45 connector, and supports DHCP, static addressing and Apple's Rendezvous for remote administration. Minimum system requirements are Windows 2000 or XP or Mac OS X.2.
