4-Port USB 2.0 over Gigabit Ethernet LAN Extender
Adder C-USB-LAN-P is a high performance USB extender kit including the Transmitter (C-USB-LAN-T) & Receiver (C-USB-LAN-R) units, that enables you to locate your critical computing hardware away from the user work station whilst maintaining the original user desktop experience. It can transmit USB2.0 over a single CATx cable or via an 1GbE IP network:
- Transparent USB2.0 operation
- 330ft (100m) extension distance
- Switchable and routable
- USB2.0 Hi-speed for mass storage devices plus:
- USB2.0 (low and full speed) for keyboard, mouse, tablet and touch screen
- Supports USB3.0 controllers
- Isochronous support for audio devices and web cams
- Plug and play
Enables connection of any USB human interface device - from mice and keyboards through to touch screens, graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks and 3D explorers. Mass storage devices and isochronous devices such as webcams and headsets can also be used.
Plug and Play
Adder C-USB-LAN extenders are delivered in a zero config state so you can plug the units in and start working with them straight away. When supplied as pairs, they are already synchronized, so they will locate each other automatically over your network.
Once connected, operation is totally transparent to the host system, the USB peripheral(s) and you, the user. There are no drivers to install and your USB devices work precisely as they did before; the only difference is that they are now up to 330 feet (100 meters) away from the host. There is no need for drivers or software to be installed.
An API is available, supporting all functionality to which authorized 3rd party control systems can interface.
Support for audio devices
With Isochronous support the C-USB-LAN will work with USB microphones and headsets as well as web cams.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
That is correct! You can simply plug the Adder C-USB-LAN Extender units into your network and start working with them straight away. When supplied as pairs, they are already synchronized, so they will locate each other automatically over your network.
Note however, the C-USB-LAN units must be connected to the same VLAN, they will not work across VLANs (different subnets) and use Link-local or DHCP assigned IP address (not possible to use static IPs but using DHCP reservation is supported).
Also here are some other notes regarding network compatibility for the C-USB-LAN:
- USB 2.0 is capable of consuming up to 480Mbps. For that reason, we recommend using the extender modules on Gigabit networks (1000Base-T) and not 100 Megabit networks (100Base-T). The performance of the USB peripherals will be limited to the slowest link between the modules.
- Some networks may be configured to block devices with unfamiliar MAC addresses. If this is the case, you will need to provide your network administrator the MAC addresses of the extender modules. These can be found on the label on the underside of each unit.
- Some networks may be configured to block devices that consume a consistently high level of bandwidth. The extender modules may exhibit this behavior when high bandwidth devices are connected. Consult with your network administrator to resolve this.

Question: Does the C-USB-LAN require the AIM? Or can you just plug in the units into the same network without a manager? Is the C-USB-LAN out-bound accessible (completely outside of the subnet) when connected to the AIM manager?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
The Adder Infinity Manager (AIM) is not required for a point-to-point (P2P) C-USB-LAN application.
If the requirement is to extend the USB of a single computer to a remote location then all is needed is a C-USB-LAN-TX at the source (computer) and a C-USB-LAN-RX at the user.
C-USB-LAN units must be connected to the same VLAN, they will not work across VLANs (different subnets) and use Link-local or DHCP assigned IP address (not possible to use static IPs but using DHCP reservation is supported).
If there is also an AIM on the same subnet then C-USB-LANs would get their IPs from the manager and would be under the control of the manager.
