    Duronic Networking USB 2.0 server

    Hi Guys

    Now here's an odd thing... I've just purchased a USB 2.0 networking server marketed by Duronic, none of the literature within the box nor on the box itself mention Windows 10, it talks about everything from Windows 2,000 and XP to Vista and Windows 7, but not Windows 10.

    I'm using it as a print server, permanently wired to my router via Ethernet. I've installed the accompanying software on all my computers, a Windows 7 Pro. 64bit PC, a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit laptop, a laptop converted from Win.7 to Win.10 Home Premium 64bit and a new 'top of the range' Laptop with Win.10 64bit as original OS.

    Now... which of these is going to work with the new piece of kit ? The Win.7 machines, right?
    Wrong! the two Win.10 machines worked 'straight out of the box' no problem, immediate success. I've spent the past ten hours trying to get either of the Win.7 machines to work. The software seems to install, but in both Win.7 cases it misidentifies the printer and anything I try to print just hangs with the dreaded 'Printer not responding' error.

    I'm at a loss now as to what to try, Duronic of course are closed for the weekend... Looks like I'm going to just have to bide my time and wait for Monday... I expect they're in USA so that'll be at least another five hours ! LOL.

    Of course if any of you guys would like to offer any advice I'd be only too pleased to try your suggestions.

    Looks all Brit from where I sit:

    http://www.duronic.com/

    Duronic
    Shinemart LTD,
    1 Spilsby Road,
    Romford,
    RM3 8SB
    United Kingdom

    I can't find a single reference to this old product there though - much less support such as drivers, software, or manuals.

    Maybe that's the wrong outfit?

    Yeah,
    More of a query than a reply...
    Where's the aforementioned thread ?

    Yeah, Thanks Dilettante,

    Since my first post the two Win.10 machines have stopped communicating with the server.
    I've still had no reply from Duronic other than their automatic acknowledgements, maybe their website's still active but they're not ?

    Sadly, I'm going to have to return this item.
