Silex Technology has unveiled a new way to share up to 15 USB devices across a network using a Gigabit connection. The Silex adapter is called the SX-3000GB. The device has two USB ports and a single 10/100/1000 Ethernet port to connect to a wired or wireless network.

 

You have to use a USB hub to share all 15 devices the adapter can support. The two USB ports built-in have a combined power output of one amp. The adapter works on Windows and Mac systems and is available now for $99.
