connect multi function copier to 2 networks with USB to Ethernet appliance
Posted on 2011-03-12
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?
