Recommended adapter for USB to Ethernet
This article applies to the Meeting Owl and the Meeting Owl Pro.
If you are trying to connect the Meeting Owl's USB cable to a Ethernet cable, we recommend this IOGEAR USB Extender over Ethernet Cable adapter.
This adapter will only allow you to connect to your Owl using an ethernet cable as an extension cord. Using this adapter will not allow you to connect your Owl to a computer with a switch, router, hub or over a network. The two ends of the adapter must be connected to the same ethernet cable for the computer to recognize the Meeting Owl.
We also have recommended USB extension cables for additional length options.
This adapter includes one Local unit to be connected to your computer and ethernet cable, and one Remote unit to be connected to the same ethernet cable, a power source, and the Owl (as well as up to 3 other USB devices).
This adapter has the following requirements:
- Operating System
- Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1
- Mac OS X 10.3.9+
- USB 2.0 port
- USB 2.0 device
- Cat5, Cat5e, or Cat6 RJ45 ethernet cable (no longer than 164 feet)
