I have tried to use the networking USB server from Conrad with my Logitech webcams.
My main problem was that the product cannot be reliably connected through a switch. Let me explain.
Without a switch I could eventually get things working, but it was never a matter of just "turning it on". It involved lots of turning things off and on. However, once it got working it stayed working, and I could connect an HD webcam!
With a switch I had all of the above problems plus it always turned itself off after a few minutes.
I sent Conrad email about the problem, and they sent back a form email saying "send it back".
In another email Conrad told me that the manufacturer was Win-Star in China. Win-star has not been much help.
I believe that the problem is in the software/firmware. If they fix that, this could be a great product.
In the meantime, I am still looking for a networking USB server that works reliably through a switch.
