USB 2.0 Over IP Network 4-Port Hub Share any USB Device Over TCP/IP

Product Review (submitted on May 4, 2013):

Biggest problem with this usb to ip rig was getting past all the Win 8 difficulties.
I really wish the folks at cool drives would post a link on how-to directions with win8 on their site. After a rather tedious install my STL1001E SBIG astronomical CCD camera is working well with the USB to IP adapter and its simultaneously handling usb communications from my SiTech telescope controller. Be advised though, as the previous review eluded to, the computer needs to have the fast I/O to make sure the communications are not disrupted when downloading images (the camera needs ISO-synchronous bandwidth) . I would recommend this hardier model for observatory use..
BTW I have an earlier version of this USB to IP model that has worked well for a couple of years now on Win32 machine ( it's now my backup).
