Usb To Ethernet Printer Adapter


I want to connect a usb printer to a network. I know it can be done with the airport extreme base station through its usb port. But is there any solution/device that will allow me to do the same without me having to get a airport station?

Sata To Ethernet Adapter

I'm building a network cabinet (home use) and just about finished it and wanted to add a ssd drive to the panel. I'd like this ssd drive to connect directly to my network using a gig ethernet adapter. Does anyone know if there is such a beast available? I'm looking for the smallest possible solution. If this allows remote ftp access, so much the better. The only thing i've seen so far are 3. 5" docking adapters that you drop the hard drive in.

Esata To Ethernet Adapter

I have a probox 4 bay enclosure here which i love. I have it connected to my eeepc via usb currently, but i want to get a media pc for my home theater and want to use an adapter to essentially convert the hdd enclosure to a nas. Jaycar sell a usb to ethernet adapter which could work, but my enclosure also has an e-sata port which i would rather use if possible due to it's faster connection speed (i have a lot of high bit-rate 1080p media). So my question is this: does an e-sata to ethernet adapter exist, and where can i get one if so?

Nvidia Nforce Ethernet Adapter Problem

I have an e machine originally running windows vista home premium, now running 7 home premium. I'm having a problem with my nvidia nforce built in networking controller. For a while i was mad at vista before i could afford to buy seven, so when i bought my computer a year ago i downgraded to xp. All was well until i had an issue with the built in ethernet adapter. It kept disconnecting and then reconnecting for no reason. It does this about every 3 minutes or so, and when it does its disconnected for about 10 seconds. Its incredibly annoying especially when i'm gaming because it lags severely during this. Getting fed up with not being able to find the solution to this, i got a really cheap cnet pro pci boosted ethernet adapter from a friend. I got it so cheap because it was old, originally released in 1999 when broadband was first sprouting its legs in the world, and many people who switched from dial up to broadband didn't have these ethernet adapters already in there computer. So anyways i installed it and it works fine. However when i upgraded to windows 7 here in just the last week (clean custom install) the driver for this adapter no longer works. I looked online and found that because its so old its apparently not compatible with windows seven or vista for that matter. So that leaves me with my stupid spastic nforce. What i'm getting at is that the adapter is driving me up the wall. I was just curious if anyone knew of quick fix other than going to buy another ethernet adapter? Did i mention i'm only 15? So no job means i cant really afford to go buy one. I really wish there was some sort of fix for this in the settings. I will take anything someone might suggest to fix this.

Athlon Xp 2200 Ethernet Adapter Stopped Working

This is on my athlon xp 2200 machine. The ethernet has always worked on it, but two nights ago we had a bad lightning storm, now i am getting "a network cable is unplugged" message and i can't fix it. I have tried deleting the drivers and reinstalling them, twice. I have changed the cables around for direct internet and then to the router and still no go. I know the internet cable is working because i have internet on this computer. Can anyone think of somehting else? I am desperate here. Athlon xp 2200 t-bred. 768mb of ddr400 ram
Dfi ad77 infinity mobo
Geforce fx 5900. Oddly enough, this computer was fried too, rather my battery backup needed to be reset and everything removed and replaced in my mobo.

Sata Nas With Ethernet And Usb 2.0

Rather then building a htpc, i am going to get the wd tv hd media player. Thus i would like to get a nas (1-2 drive support) that can use both ethernet and usb 2. 0 at the same time. Ethernet to get media onto the drive and usb to interface with the wd hd media player. Its my cheap and compact idea for a media player of 1080p content.

Usb Ethernet Adaptor Unable To Connect To Internet

I have connected this a new usb-ethernet adaptor to my laptop which is running w2000 and loaded the driver but i am unable to connect to the internet.network connections shows the device is working correctly. If i replace the device with a wireless dongle then i can connect to the internet so it is not a firewall or broadband problem. My laptop only has one usb port so i am switching between wired and wireless internet connection, the wireless works and the wired doesn't.

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?

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.

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.
