Someone prolly has this kind of thing but i just figured out what else could i use my belkin network usb hub for. I figured out that i don't have a dvd drive in almost any pc, then i figured out that i can plug one of those external dvd drives to the network usb hub! So i can have dvd in all of my pc's over the network! :) I currently have three usb printers shared through that device.

But you would have to manually insert the DVD, so it would be just as easy just grabbing the USB DVD device.

I find it useful as i have three printers shared with all of my family members wirelessly :)

 

Cool. I can see this being great for watching movies... If it works well

True!

 

You can do that? Tell me how it goes!

I don't have an external dvd drive yet but it should work. Just buy a usb device to network thingy and plug that dvd thing in :) It should work. It also needs a software, atleast with belkin with multible usb ports.

Well with this solution i can use my laptop from the couch wirelessly and watch movies and something like that, and again, it is shared with all of my family members as they don't have dvd drives either ;)

You.... This..... I.... 

... I'm going to be doing this with my RT-68U router. Why didn't I think of this genius genius utility of a USB DVD drive and a network connected USB hub?

Hrm... I've wanted to make my printer wireless for a long time, so I can get that hub for $99 or a new printer with Wi-Fi for $169... I'm not really sure.

Any unknown button should be pressed even number of times.

But you would have to manually insert the DVD, so it would be just as easy just grabbing the USB DVD device.

but what if you would use it to get a LAN party with just one copy of BF2 so that everyone can acces the CD-drive

I tried plugging a webcam into my Dlink wifi router (extender) but it didn't work.

So many things I could write here... things like this.

Wow the price has really gone up! I bought two of those from amazon and by then they cost about 40 euros each... But there are obviously cheaper models available somewhere, there are also those which only have one usb port and they should be pretty cheap. :)

Yea, it shouldn't work. It isn't meant to work, most routers are not clever enough to run as anything more than a file or a printer server, you need some kind of dedicated device.

 

LooL :D
