I know you can buy a USB switch that will enable you to share the same USB 
device (printer, Zip drive, scanner, camera, etc.) among two or even four 
Now, let me ask this: Suppose I have a USB hub I wish to share with two 
computers? Will that work? Of course, the drivers for all the devices 
plugged into the hub would have to be installed on both machines, but I am 
sitting here wondering if it can be done. Frankly, I have no idea if it 
will work.

I would like to share three usb devices between two computers, and this 
seems like the best way to go.

Thank you for your input.
