The IOGEAR USB 2. 0 4-Port Boost LINQ Ethernet combines a USB extender and a USB hub to allow connecting as many as four USB 2. 0 (and/or USB 1. 1) devices from up to 164 feet away from your computer. Connected devices still maintain a high-speed data transfer rate of up to 480Mbps, while operating from a more convenient location. The USB 2. 0 4-Port Boost LINQ Ethernet converts a USB 2. 0 or USB 1. 1 connection to RJ-45, and sends the USB data over common Cat5, Cat5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable up to a distance of 164 feet (50 meters). The USB 2. 0 4-Port Boost LINQ Ethernet is considered an active repeater, using a small power supply to amplify the USB signal and preserve the integrity of the data over long distances. The power supply also helps maintain enough current to power any connected USB devices such as webcams, hard drives, etc. The USB 2. 0 4-Port Boost LINQ Ethernet kit includes a local unit, a remote unit and a power supply. The local unit connects directly to your computer while the remote unit connects with up to four USB devices. The local and remote units are connected to each other with Cat5, Cat5e, or Cat6 Ethernet cabling (not included) up to a maximum length of 164 feet (50 meters). The GUCE64 is simple to set up and requires no additional drivers to install. Designed with classrooms, labs, offices and conference rooms
