  • Works with Web Cams + USB Hubs

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Got it working with a (non-powered) usb hub, and I hooked up 2 USB Web cams to it. I was having trouble with the webcams over a long ethernet cable, but a shorter one works fine.

    Works as described:

    It's as if you are plugging something in right beside your computer (but in my case I was 2 floors away).

    Cons:

    I had a lot of trouble getting it up and running with a USB hub from far 120+ feet away, i think it came down to a bandwisth issue, this can't be resolved from what I know. I have about 15+ feet worth of cat5e and it finally works, havent tried longer than that or less than about 120 feet.
