I have a RICOH MP3351 multi function copier, printer, scanner that I need to connect to 2 different networks.  The first network is already connected via the 1 available Ethernet port.   The second network will have to connect via a USB port, and so that will require a USB to Ethernet adapter.  

So far I have tried 2 different versions of the IOGear adapter but these only work on non windows server computers. It seems the device requires the use of client software which creates some kind of "USB connection over IP."

I need a solution that will allow a USB connection to function like a true Ethernet NIC.  Does anyone know of something like that?

you could try  http://www.digi.com/products/usb/anywhereusb.jsp#models

we have the 2port model and it works ok for USB disks.
 BUT we really wanted it to connect a usb licence key to a VMWare server.  But that doesnt work reliably at all so there may be issues with the MFD as well.
