External Hd With Usb To Rj45 Adapter


I have an external hd case that has usb and esata. I would also like to connect it to my router. Is this possible by using an adapter like this: http://bit. Ly/9okfd1

Will that make the external hard drive available on the network?

External Usb Floppy Drive Power Adapter

I have an external usb floppy drive that i got some time ago. I need to use it for something but discovered that i have misplaced the ac adapter. The drive is designed to run off the bus unless you connect it to an un-powered hub but it works best with the adapter.considering this, what would the power specs on such an adapter be? I can't get any answers from the manufacturer for some reason (they went out of business and then came back). I seem to remember it being a 12 volt unit but the power draw was closer to an amp then most of the generic adapters you could find at radio shack, etc. I remember the adapter being pretty large.

Diy Usb To Rj45 Cable

I need one of these for my apc ups that i got used. The only problem is apc wants $35 for it. Does anyone know if it would be possible to simply build my own? Or where i might find a wiring schematic to do so?

External Wireless Adapter For Laptop

I have an hp touchsmart laptop (which i've recently learned is infamous for wifi problems) and the wifi constantly turns itself on and off. The wifi light above the keyboard switches from blue when it's on to red when it's off. It never stays on for more than an hour and usually goes back and forth every 2-5 minutes or so. It looks like a christmas light show. It's not my network card that is broken, i guess it's a hardware problem with the switch. If i plug in an ethernet cable everything runs fine!

Anyway, this started (of course) about a week after my warranty expired! Hp is wanting to charge me a little over $100 to fix it. I figured buying an external wireless adapter would be better (and cheaper). Like the netgear usb dongles. But i have just a couple questions about them, probably dumb questions so i apologize. 1. Do they work good? I use my laptop for gaming when i want to lounge on the couch or play at friends houses. If it is going to run slower than my internal adapter, it won't be worth it to me. 2. My current internal network adapter is not n, so if i get an n dongle will it actually run at n speed?

Usb External Hard Drive Front Panel Usb Connection Problem

I have a usb connection external hard drive. It works perfectly and is detected in computer one.computer 2 and 3 starts to detect it but stops and says there it might have problems working perfectly. And no drive letter shows in computer 2 & 3. But computer 1 reads it shows it. All 3 computers have win xp pro and all 3 computers detect and show all other usb devices with no problems. This issue here is with the front panel usb connection on all cases. Not the back. Anyone here have a solution?

It's a 2. 5 travelstar hitachi ide hard drive in an enclosure case.

Connect Printer To G Wireless Router With Rj45 Connectors

How do you connect db37 printer to g wireless router with only rj45 connectors? I take it that you're talking about a 37 pin centronics parallel connector on your printer. There are a couple of ways to do it. 1) like a previous answer stated, you can connect it to a computer and then share it through that computer to the router. -Or-

2) you can get a parallel to network or wireless print server for around $50 to attach to the printer which allows connection and sharing directly to the router itself for the printer. You can choose a wireless version or a wired rj45 network version, depending on what would work best for you, but you don't need to buy a new printer just to hook up to a network. A new printer with network capability is one way to go, but while they may be cheap, the newer printers seem to have more maintenance issues and problems than the older printers which seem to last forever with minimal problems, unlike today's printers. As long as you can keep and use your existing printer, it will be cheaper and last longer in the long run.

Scsi To Usb Adapter

A few times now i've been stuck wishing that i had a scsi to usb adapter so i could image or pull data from a scsi drive. Currently, i just throw an old hba in my pc and hook up the drive that way. The drives are always 68 or 80 pin.google brings up a few hits and it looks like these were popular years ago, but even then they were very slow and most of the time only had 50 pin connections on them. They seemed to be often used with the old iomega zip and jazz drives and only supported usb 1. 1. I'd like to add one to my recovery kit if possible, but i can't find much info. Thoughts?

Usb Charger Adapter

While in my local staples, pilfering the clearance bin, i found an interesting cell phone /wire connector set which had an adapter cable that looked like it might just fit in my kindle. After buying it for a rip-off price of 50 cents, it turned out to be a perfect fit, and it doubled as a usb -> mini-usb connector too. Basically it is an: usb -> miniusb + power adapter that fits into kindle power adapter slot. The reason why usb -> power adapter is better then charging from usb -> mini-usb is that you don't have to goto usb drive mode (which prevents you from reading), when connecting with mini-usb connector alone. This means you can keep reading while charging your kindle next to your laptop via usb port!

As a bonus, it seems this wire is both plentiful and cheap on ebay (or if you're too lazy you can find it in most office-supply/ electronics stores)

http://store. Palm.com/sm-belkin-usb-sync-charger-for-tungsten-e-zire-72-pi-2165159.html

But you can buy them on ebay if you search specifically for:

"Palm zire usb cable". Tons to be had for $4-5 dollars shipped. Make sure you get the zire 72 or tungsten type and not the wrong type of palm cable. Note: though i already scored the belkin version of this cable, i managed to find on ebay a better retractable version for $4. 50:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/ebayisapi.dll?Viewitem&rd=1&item=330200416467&sspagename=strk:mewn:it&ih=014

(Note: still waiting for this one to arrive, but it should fit, and i will update thread if it doesn't fit)

With a retractable version, that means i can charge my kindle anywhere i want, bring a spare charge cable in my pocket to plug into usb, and transfer stuff onto kindle if necessary. This is the specific product i bought for 50 cents (if you want to scrounge around your local staples clearance bins).

Usb Adapter For A 1.8 Pata Drive

I have a dell latitude d420 with a corrupted hard drive. I believe it's a 1. 8 pata drive and it has a ribbon cable connector. At this point all i really want to do is get some of the data off of it and then i will format the disk and re-install the operating system. I am looking for a usb device that will allow me to read the disk as an external usb device. I have one for ide and sata drives and it works great but it's not compatible with the dell 1. 8" drive. A tech guy at a local computer store tell me that he does not think one exists. Does anyone know if there is a usb cable adapter that will support this drive?

Laptop Drive To Usb Adapter

I bought a usb adapter that can go from ide/sata and laptop ide to usb. Everything works great. Except when i hook up the laptop ide drive. It can read/write for about 5 minutes (more like 2), then it shuts down. I'm not sure if it is a power saving feature or what, but it is annoying. I have changed the setting in device manager to "allow the os to shut off device to save power" to disabled with no results. Anyone have a similar experience or solution. Yes, i've googled it many times under different queries with no decent results. I don't think buying a new one would help, as it does work, it's just the power to the hdd stops after a few minutes.

Bluetooth V1.2 Compatible Headset And Usb Adapter

I don't know too much about bluetooth. I'd like to get the logitech bluetooth mobile pro headset for talking on skype. I don't know which usb bluetooth adapter to get for it. I'm using windows xp but, it would be nice to get one that's linux compatible too. I'm guessing that the adapter should be bluetooth v1. 2 compatible. What's the diff between v1. 1 and v1. 2?

Convert Ps2 Keyboard To Usb Without Adapter

Usb Adapter To Bypass Audio Port

Some time back, i was for some reason or other using a male-to-female audio plug adapter that went between my headphones into my computer's audio port. Unfortunately this adapter had the quirk that the metal part of the male plug was made of a cylinder and a separate end bit which plugged loosely into the cylinder, and was easily broken off. Sure enough, it broke off - while in the computer's audio port. And there it has remained since, wedged in there, nearly impossible to move. Since the end bit is stuck right in the back of the audio port as it would be in normal usage, but slanted, it actually works almost properly. I can use the cylindrical part of the male adapter plug to touch the back of the end bit, and the right channel of the headphones works fine. If i don't plug the headphones into the adapter quite right, i can get the right channel to be repeated, mono-style, in the left channel of the headphones as well. This is actually a stable and working solution, but i'd like to be able to hear in stereo once again. Solution:

To be able to do that, either i have to get the thinnest, flattest pliers in the world and try to pull the end bit out (the accessible part is a fairly small, theoretically grippable cylinder), or i have to find a way to bypass the audio port, preferably using a usb adapter into which i can plug the headphones directly. This computer isn't exactly a new model so i'm hoping for a cheap but good solution; i've done some researching and such adapters seem to cost $100 or more, which is crazy. I'm hoping for a cheaper bypass. But even with such a part, the computer would need to use the usb port instead of the audio port, and i have no idea how to make that happen. Any suggestions?

Usb Wireless Adapter Wont Connect

I went to a clients house today, he has a windows xp machine running off a cable modem, and a wireless linksys router. I purchased a netgear usb wireless adapter, with excellent range, i installed cd rom software, and can see the wireless router sending off a signal at 65% bouncing to around 40%. When i connect, it either says limited connection or no connectivity. I reset the router, checked the wep password, etc, still cant get it to work. He says another tech came over awhile back and had the same issue and couldn't figure out why they could not get a successful connection. I to am having this trouble and would like to fix it soon! What should i do? Buy an actual router for his dell desktop to connect to the other router? If so will i have the same issue? What type of problems can this be caused by? And what are my options?

Usb Malfunctions When Connect A D-link Dwl-g122 Wlan Adapter

I'm wondering why the usb malfunctions when i try to connect a d-link dwl-g122 wlan adapter, but works fine when i try to connect a casio digital camera. When the wlan is plugged in, windows gives me the "a usb device cannot be recognised as it has malfunctioned" baloon in the system tray. It's wierd because a couple of hours before it was fine. It's not just affecting a few ports, it's all of them, inclusing the front panel ports. I tried a clean install of windows xp, and that failed.

Usb Cables For External Hdd

I have usb cables that came with a couple, can't remember if all, of my usb hdd enclosures that have, idk exactly what it is, some type of resistor, or something, the little cylindrical fitting that goes around cable next to plug, and i'm wondering what that accomplishes, and if it's necessary to have. Can i replace with standard usb cable or is it important?
