Belkin ships network USB Wi-Fi hub

Belkin has introduced a device that lets you share multiple printers, hard drives and other peripherals wirelessly.

The £79.99 (US$160), including VAT. Belkin Network USB Hub works with an existing wireless router to give wireless access to peripherals.

The system works by simulating a direct USB connection, tricking the computer into thinking the devices on the network are directly attached to it.

Special caching techniques allow for support of high-speed USB devices and isochronous transfers at full speed.

The software allows users to transfer control of USB devices on the hub between computers. Users can share up to five devices using the system, though only one user can use any one device at a time.

The company warns the system doesn't support some high-speed/high-bandwidth USB devices such as HD-streaming webcams or other video-transfer applications.
