But wife needs to print and isn’t the most computer savvy. Rated 1 out of 5 by Brad from Glitchy on my multi-function printer On the company website the description of the GUB is this: Most excellent and simplicity itself to install and it works as expected first time! Couldn’t be more pleased. Set the same preferred printer in each driver. Rated 5 out of 5 by Anthony from Simplicity and value go great together!

Rated 3 out of 5 by andrewchinttdi from Work well with vista but not win7 This printer auto share work well with windows vista but not windows 7.
Simply send the print job and the switch automatically makes the swap for you. USB cable in from a G4 Mac. Enter new zip code to prinrer estimated delivery time. Hooked up the automatic–the key word–Iogear printer sharing prihter with the included USB cables. When I connect it to two vista PC, it work great. LED lights for the computer currently printing.

IOGEAR 2-Port USB Printer Auto Sharing Switch GUB B&H
No more plugging and unplugging between your computers. At times, I can just click print and it will go but a good amount of the time, I have to manually switch the printer software. I have a great PC home office with 2 machines networked to share my peripherals printer, scanner, DVD writer, etc. We live in a divided PC-Mac family.
Best deal I could find on the net! The product did not deliver the advertised functions for me.

With the Iogear 2-port automatic switch, I could set up a printer cable just for her own use. Switches computers sqitch for each print job without delay. See any errors on this page? Perhaps because of the two different operating systems, the XP laptop gives an quto alert sound when the desktop computer is printing and on occassion, the Windows 7 machine puts up a message saying the printer is not connected when it really is. Most excellent and simplicity itself to install and it works as expected first time!
Set the same preferred printer in each driver.
It supports Windows and Mac OS, as well as multifunction printers. And this will apply to every user: The laptop runs Windows XP and the desktop, Windows 7. The 2-Port USB 2.
Update Unrecognized Zip Code. On the other hand, wife is a nurse and I faint at the sight of blood.
I had first tried a manual two-way KVM, but was less than pleased. It has been difficult to network these two computers with success being iffy and intermitent.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jammy the Bammy from Just what the doctor ordered Nonetheless, still a better option than dharing and I still recommend this product. Switch is powered by USB bus.
No Longer Available Update Location close. We have learned to ignore the sqwaking, complaining computers and just let the printer sharjng switch do its work!
With the Iogear switch in place, my need for the printer at one or the other of the two PC’s is a transparent operation. She used to e-mail me files so 22-port could print them for her.
