The USB server keeps disconnecting and becomes lost on the network. The only recovery is to power cycle the SIIG device. Once I do that, I reconnect and will start getting my data again, but it is an unacceptable solution.
This works for an occasional USB connection (if you are willing to power cycle the SIIG).
Bottom line: Do not buy.
I use this product paired with a USB webcam connected to my local network.
This setup replaced a 32 foot active USB cable with a 6 foot USB extension to the webcam, The webcam is 720 HD and using a USB cable did not provide a reliable solution, often the webcam would simply disappear or drop out from the system.
Since I have CAT6 running in the same location with a 6 port switch it made sense to switch to a USB over IP solution, problem is that it was extremely difficult to find such a product, believe me I have been searching for many years.
To my surprise I found the SIIG USB over IP and I am very happy with it.
+ Eliminates the need to run active USB cables for long runs.
+ Allows me to use my existing gigabit network.
+ Very simple to setup.
+ Works seamlessly without any major issues.
+ The software is slightly rough around the edges and there is some room for improvement.
Specifically when the USB device is disconnected and then reconnected via the USB Server software my webcam software Blue Iris indicates that the device isn't found, but if I go back into the device properties the camera is listed, if I reselect it then it works.
(This may be an issue with Blue Iris but I suspect something changes with the USB device to trigger this issue)
I have the USB server software set to automatically connect on startup but if the host PC has a dynamic IP then the USB Server software reports an error "wrong network or similar", I have to manually scan and connect after the host PC has acquired an IP. Alternatively I can set the host PC to use a static IP and eliminate the issue, though I suspect that this solution may not completely solve it if the host PC has multiple network adapters.
The fact that you can share the USB device with many computers is a huge plus, though only one PC can use the USB device at any given time.
Overall this is a great product and I would highly recommend it for most situations.
