USB Device Server with High-Speed-WLAN-Support
USB Device Server with up to 300Mbit WLAN at 2,4 and 5 GHz band
The fast SX-DS-3000WAN is a powerful USB device server for
wireless or wired networks. The USB Virtual Link technology from
silex technology makes any kind of USB device network-capable in
the simplest of manners. Printers, scanners, hard drives, dongles and
card readers can be used over the network via a total of 2 USB
Hi-Speed ports with the SX-DS-3000WAN through a wireless or
wired network, just as though they were connected to the local
computer. Multiple people can use the same USB device one after
the other, and it can be located further away from them.

Function for automatic printer connection
By setting up this function using SX Virtual Link, a print job is
automatically detected for a configured printer: The connection to
the printer is established, the print process is executed and the
connection is released again. Thus the device server function
simultaneously includes a print server function that is also suitable
for GDI printers.
What is a USB Device Server?
It is a network device that uses the USB Virtual Link technology to
make USB devices network-ready. Thanks to the USB Virtual Link
technology from silex technology, a variety of USB devices can be
used on a network, just as though they were connected with a USB
What is SX Virtual Link?

(wireless LAN)
WLAN Router /
Access Point
SX Virtual Link is a software application for the use of the USB Virtual
Link technology. With SX Virtual Link, the computer can make a
remote connection over the network to any USB device connected to
the USB device server.
● Supports IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n
The device supports IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n.
It is suitable for fast wireless data transfer using WLAN (2.4 and
5-GHz band, up to 300 Mbps) for business or home use.
● Support for Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 HiSpeed
It also provides Gigabit Ethernet (1000 BASE-T) and two USB 2.0
Hi-Speed ports. This means it can also be used in environments
without a WLAN. The simultaneous use of wireless LAN (WLAN) and
wired LAN is not supported.
● Easy setup
The SX-DS-3000WAN supports WPS (Wi-Fi protected setup), permitting the fast, easy setup of a secure connection to the WLAN router or
access point.
The network is searched for the product and the connected USB
devices; the search results are shown in an overview on the main
● Print server function
Supports standard TCP/IP printing (LPR/RAW).
The product supports the normal network printing protocls for RAW
mode and LPR mode. When the product is connected to a printer, the
standard Windows print function can be used to print.
If another user is using a shared USB device, a request for disconnection
can be sent. It can also be specified that failure to respond
to this request will automatically lead to a disconnection after a

Features, continued
With the SX-DS-3000WAN you can connect a variety of
USB devices over the network, like USB dongles, MP3 players,
CD/DVD/Zip drives, USB drives and other storage media,
scanners, printers, digital cameras, USB sound cards, USB LCD
monitors, telescopes, mixing consoles, and many more. The
productivity of USB devices is increased by their availability
as network resources.
Virtual environments: The USB Device Server is compatible
with the following virtualisation programs and
environments: VMware, Citrix, Microsoft Terminal Server, and
Other USB Device Servers
Devices such as printers, scanners and dongles are connected over the network.
