This Gigabit USB-over-IP device server offers a simple and convenient way to extend and share a USB device over long distances, and it works with multiple users connected to your network. Plus, the device server supports Gigabit (1000Mbps) speeds, so your connected devices function faster than traditional 10/100Mbps device servers.

The versatile device server connects directly to your PC, or it works with your existing network devices (for example, hubs, routers, switches) so it can easily integrate into your current network infrastructure. It’s ideal for connecting and sharing USB devices (for example, card readers, digital cameras, webcams, printers, and scanners) with multiple networked users. Plus, you can use multiple device servers on the same network, letting you connect and share even more USB peripherals.

The USB-over-IP device server includes Windows based software that provides a simple interface to connect, monitor, and control the connected device over your local area network (LAN). Plus, the software communicates directly with the device server, so it can be used in Virtual Machine (VM) environments if you have multiple VMs sharing the same set of hardware.

The USB1000IP is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.


  • Allow users to share access to digital photography equipment over the network in image editing/graphic design environments

Frequently Asked Questions


Prior to installing this device, ensure that your operating system is up to date (for example, you have installed the most recent service pack).

To install the USB Server software:

  1. Download the latest software package from the StarTech.com website (http://www.startech.com/Support). You can find the part number and product ID on the product’s packaging.

Note: Windows will typically save the files to the Downloads folder that is associated with your user account (for example, C:\Users\your_name\Downloads).

  1. Once the download is complete, right-click the zip folder that you downloaded, select Extract All, and follow the on-screen instructions.
  2. Select the appropriate folder for your operating system.
  3. Right-click Setup.exe
  4. Click Run as Administrator.

Note: If the Run as Administrator option is not available, you might be attempting to run the installer from within the zipped file. Extract the files using the instructions in Step 2.

  1. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the software and restart the computer when prompted.
  2. Your computer will automatically complete the software installation and your device should be ready to use.

Set up the software

Confirm that the extender is on the same network as your computer. If you are using a network with DHCP, you do not need to configure anything further.

If you are using an Ethernet cable to connect to the unit or you are using a network without DHCP, you need to change the IP address on your computer to the default IP network of the IP device server. Change the IP address of your system to 192.168.1.XXX, where XXX is a number between 1 and 49.

Note: The default IP address of the extender is on the default subnet mask of

USB Server software

Your extender is detected by the USB Server software when the software is launched.

Note: It may take a few minutes for the server to appear in the software.

When the extender appears in the list (for example, USB2HDMI), click either the display or media device associated with the server. Click on one of the devices and then click Connect Device.

When the USB Server software configuration is complete, the display and media devices are connected to your system as though the devices are installed locally. By default, Windows creates an extended desktop for the display, which you can reconfigure in the control panel.


If the device is not detected in the USB Server software, complete the following:

  • Make sure that the computer is on the same network as the device.
  • By default, the device uses DHCP. On a network that is plug-and-play, the device is assigned an IP address by the DHCP server and is detected by a computer that is on the same network as the device.
  • To troubleshoot the device, connect it directly to a computer on the 192.168.1 network. For more information about configuring the USB Server software, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/ipusb2vga_ipusb2hd2_usb_server_software.
  • If the network configuration of the device was changed, you cannot complete a hardware reset to put the unit back on Instead, you need to obtain the static IP address from the person who modified the server.
  • Wait 5 minutes for the USB Server software to detect the device.
  • Move the device to a less congested network.

You should not upgrade your device's firmware if you do not have any issues with the functionality of your device. The only time you should consider an upgrade is if you are experiencing a problem with the device, and you have confirmed that the firmware addresses this problem.  You can confirm this is the case by reviewing the documentation included with the firmware or by consulting with our Technical Support team. Incorrectly upgrading firmware can result in diminished performance so it is best to contact StarTech.com if you would like to perform this operation.

Nice Gizmo for home users

By: djluis1 - 01/04/2018
I got this product from Startech to test and it is ok if you just need to have it at home as a shared drive but, I don't recommend it for a business office because i experience some connectivity issues on couple occasions. Please make sure to read the installation steps otherwise you will be looking into a bunch of folders until you find what you need. Disclaimer - I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Does not maintain it's connection to the network. Needs to be continuously powered off and on again. We bought this for a USB license key to be attached to a server in a remote location, so there is nobody there to power cycle the device to reconnect it.

I Love it because it classified as a local HDD!

By: Edmond953 - 08/21/2020
Even though this USB server works with a SINGLE USB device compared to the Seagate GoFlex Server I have that strips its link to the customizations, the important thing It keeps the customizations as the Icons and the background images (only with Windows 98, 2000, and XP), is very important to describe a folder with an Icon because your mind sees images faster than text in which is a series of images as pictures, then your mind has to interpret as words and then determine it as a word and its meaning. Of course I do not want all of my folders to look like blank manila folders. As a marker or a landmark amongst hundreds of other folders, It is far easier to spot by an image. Most people learn to read and write in first grade, is three years later than I learned it, thanks to both of my parents, to teach me. Edmond953

Reliable Use as a Dymo LabelWriter Print Server

By: ericnix - 11/20/2020
I've used the Dymo branded print server as well as an ioGear print server, and everytime I updated the firmware on my router/switches or rebooted my router/switches, I would have to power cycle the print server and the Dymo LabelWriters to get them to work. I put two of these into my network and set static IP's. They work without needing to reboot -- I've upgraded switch/router firmware and rebooted the devices many times over the past 2 months without needing to reboot the print server. Finally some stability with my label printers! I highly recommend this product. macOS will even read two-way communication and automatically identify the LabelWriter, which is something no other print server has been able to do.
