• usb3-over-eth, anyone?

    From Ogg@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Sat Feb 25 18:43:00 2023
    I have a pc that has limited or non-fuctional usb2 ports. I'd
    like to have support for fast usb3 devices. Is there a
    reasonably-priced usb3-over-eth solution? The Digi AnywhereUSB
    AW02-G300 sounds awesome but it is over $400.

    Why do you want it to go over ethernet? There are USB3 expansion cards you can add to a PC. This is a PCI express card:

    Thx. ..but I guess I failed to mention that my "pc" is a
    laptop. It has two PCMCIA ports, but I don't think USB 3
    speeds would be supported thru that interface, thus I haven't
    seen such a beast.

    If you're looking for something new instead of ebay -- https://www.usbgear.com/ANYPLACEUSB-H3.html is a 3-port USB 3.1 over IP

    Excellent find. Thx.

    I suppose this could just be a RaspPi repackaged?


    Most things you do over USB are pretty sporadic anyways.

    Perhaps, but a device like that can supplant the meagre USB2 on
    older laptops.

    What about a PCIe expansion card. I see USB3 cards going for as little as $5.

    Spend the other $395 on gas...

    Hello Airmailman!

    I have a pc that has limited or non-fuctional usb2 ports.
    I'd like to have support for fast usb3 devices. Is there a
    reasonably-priced usb3-over-eth solution? The Digi
    AnywhereUSB AW02-G300 sounds awesome but it is over $400.

    What about a PCIe expansion card. I see USB3 cards going
    for as little as $5.

    I decided to get an ExpressCard/54 (PCIe). My T60 Thinkpad
    seemed to accomodate one ..and I didn't realize ExpressCard
    support was there.

    The new card is equipped with three USB3.0 ports.

    Seems to be a good stop-gap measure for now.

    The USB3 speeds on the card are about double what I was getting
    on the USB2 ports. That's good enuff for now.

    No kidding. :O
