I wish to connect a printer to 2 PCs. Have tried to use a Network without success, so is there such a thing as a [1xUSB male D to 2xusb female D] adaptor so that I don't need to keep pluging & unpluging each PC?

TIA

Paul

I realise that I am not all that bright, but searching on Google seems to kick up a load of sites offering standard USB leads, USB hubs or female/fema adaptors and not what I am looking for. Neither can I find it on 7 Day shop.com

I don't think a simple 1 x male to 2 x female USB adapter would work, but this Belkin 4 x 1 USB peripheral switch looks like it's made for the job click here

One here but expensive due to the lack of signal loss I suppose click here Better to buy a cheap USB hub from 7day shop and use that.

This is the 2 x 1 version click here

Hi Totally-braindead & Gongoozler,

Totally-braindead - USB hub won't work [need 2 PCs connected to 1 printer; hub would connect additional peripherals to a single PC]

Gongoozler - perfect! order placed!
