XTI USB directly to router
Posted 04 September 2012 - 03:38 PM
If I connect 7 xti to a USB Hub and then to the USB port of this router will S.A. see the amps over wireless?
usb port (back of the router):
If not, is there a router with ethernet and USB so that I can connect XTIs and I-Techs at the same time?

Each TP-Link TL-PS310U supports 4 XTI (through a USB Hub) and the only thing is that the network is somewhat slow, the meters on System achitect are not fluid anymore.
Thaks to everyone who tried to help.
EDIT: Just to add that the XTI directly to the USB port of the Asus router didn't work.

The I-Techs connect directly to the router
The TL-PS310U comes with the drivers and a little software that must be installed
Then, it's a matter of building the network, which basically consists giving the correct IP to all the amps, PC, router and TL-PS310U's, in my case:
I made proof that all this works, but haven't finished the installation (still finishing the Custom Panels and IPad panels).
I hope this helps you, any problems I'll be glad to help (that's actually my job here in Portugal )
NOTE: One thing I noticed and that might interest someone is that with passive USB hubs you can connect 4 XTI to each TP-Link TL-PS310U, but I used one active USB hub and this hub was counting as one device, meaning that I could only connect 3 XTI if I was using this active hub.
EDIT:I can already foresee a problem in my installation, every time you turn on the PC you have to open the TP-Link TL-PS310U software and activate (connect) all the USB devices it sees (The XTIs). Since I'm using Kiosk mode on S.A. and want to give access only to Custom Panels, I don't know how to automate that USB activation at startup, but I'm sure I'll find a way...

I'm thinking of installing one "Raspberry PI" per rack to share the USB's to the network
Will the XTI be recognized in Linux?? Do I need drivers??
