Quick Overview

GUCE64, 4 x USB, 164ft
USB 4-Port Extender via Ethernet Cable
The IOGEAR USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq 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 BoostLinq Ethernet converts a USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 connection to RJ-45, and sends the USB data over a common Cat5, Cat5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable up to a distance of 164 feet (50 meters). The USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq 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.

How it works
The USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq 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.

Why you need it
Designed with classrooms, labs, offices and conference rooms in mind, the USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq Ethernet offers an easy means of operating USB devices at an extended distance from your computer. Typical USB devices are limited to a maximum distance of 16ft before signal loss causes significant problems. Unlike ordinary passive USB extension cables, the GUCE64 uses active amplification so you can place devices on the other side of your office, or even the other side of the building (up to 164ft distance). The USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq Ethernet makes it easy to connect your USB 2.0 peripherals such as scanners, printers, cameras, electronic whiteboards, etc. and is backward compatible with most USB 1.1 devices. Please note that maximum transfer rate drops to 12Mbps with USB 1.1 devices connected.
