    Instant success 9/15/2016
    William from   

    I have 2 computers, a "Win 10" lap-top and a "XP" desk-top computer. I use each for different purposes, but wanted to be able to print to my laser printer regardless of which computer I was using........ I hooked up the wiring to the printer, and the two cables to the computers..... Each computer found it, I installed the software, and Bingo it worked. Now when I turn on a computer, the switch detects which one is on, and it connects to it..... OR, if I have both computers on, I can easily switch between them to print..... (Note you do need to buy one USB to printer cable as it only comes with one.) I am very happy with it!

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    I did not read the description carefully enough. I have two printers that I wanted to connect to one port on my desktop. This device serves to connect two computers to one printer. Works fine for that.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No
