The UN-101 USB Network Cable represents an innovative breakthrough in peer group networking. Peer-to-peer networking is often the best choice in small office situations, or among small workgroups, where computers share their resources and peripherals without the use of a dedicated server. Prior to the UN-101, this type of networking was either carried out on a very limited basis through slow parallel port connections, or required setting up an expensive network, including the complicated installation and configuration of network expansion cards. Now, with the UN-101 USB Network Cable, building a home or small office network is as easy as plugging cables into the computers' USB ports. Opening the case to install network cards and troubleshooting IRQ conflicts have all been replaced by simple plug and play connections. Slow parallel port transfers among a small number of computers have been replaced by more than 5 Mbps USB data transfers among up to 17 computers. Since the UN-101 uses the familiar Windows interfaces, such as Windows Explorer, there is no new interface or software to learn, making operation smooth and easy. The UN-101 offers three types of USB based networking. In addition to basic peer-to-peer workgroup networking, the UN-101 provides the workgroup with shared dialup Internet access, and also has a feature that allows the workgroup to link to an Ethernet based client/server LAN - making all the resources of the Ethernet LAN available to the group - including the company Intranet, as well as providing a direct connection to the Internet. Thanks to plug and play and the USB bus, there is no easier, faster, more efficient way for a small to medium sized workgroup to share all their resources (data, programs, printers, scanners, etc.), than with a UN-101 USB Network Cable based network.
