21901Re: F5L009 belkin network usb hub
- Jun 29, 2008Hi
Still can't find this specific product on the www.belkin.com site.
I'm clicking on hubs on the left and then usb hubs in the drop down
menu which does indeed bring up some products with similar cases,
but not this specific product. It's essentially a wired ethernet to
5 usb port device. The only devices I see in a similar case are 2
items for the mac. And a WUSB pair which uses it's own wireless link
rather than wifi.
I'll need to reconfirm the source of the information regarding it
I've now found a belkin gpl download site is here -
Not many products are mentioned.
