We have learned to ignore the sqwaking, complaining computers and just let the printer and switch do its work! Hooked up the automatic–the key word–Iogear printer sharing switch with the included USB cables. Perhaps because of the two different operating systems, the XP laptop gives an audible 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. No more plugging and unplugging between your computers. See any errors on this page? Switches computers automatically for each print job without delay.

The product works as advertised and automatically switches to accommodate printing requests. LED lights for the computer currently printing. It was glitchy intermittent malfunctions hooked to my Canon MP multi-function printer MFP and Tech Support at Iogear, although courteous, couldn’t solve the problem.
When I connect it to two vista PC, it swirch great. However with one PC on win7 and the other running on vista, only the vista work. Couldn’t be more pleased. Nonetheless, still a better option than most and I still recommend this product. The product did not deliver the advertised functions for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anthony from Simplicity and value go great together! But wife needs to print and isn’t the most computer savvy. Switch is powered by USB bus. Set the same preferred printer in each driver. With the Iogear 2-port automatic switch, I could set up a printer cable just for her own use. Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. No more plugging and unplugging between your computers. The 2-Port USB 2.
IOGEAR – GUB – 2-Port USB Automatic Printer Switch
We live in a divided PC-Mac family. 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 2-poet. 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.
Software installation was easy. It has been difficult to network these two computers with success being iffy and intermitent.
