Intelligent Network Apparatus    

Coupling two connectors to a network by automatically detecting the state that denotes which connector has been connected with a computer

Overview

The object of this invention is to provide an intelligent network connecting apparatus for facilitating the computer to couple with a remote network by either ethernet connector or USB connector.

An intelligent network connecting apparatus for serving as a terminal of network includes a panel, female ethernet connector, female USB connector, converting means, and auto-detecting switch. The female ethernet connector and USB connector are mounted on the panel together, which is fixed on walls or structures of architectures for enclosing the converting means and auto-detecting switch in the structure. As an alternative, the converting means and auto-detecting switch could be encased in a box, on which the panel with an ethernet connector and USB connector are mounted. While a computer couples with the female ethernet connector, signals directly communicate between the computer and a remote network. When the computer couples with the female USB connector, the auto-detecting switch would automatically couple the converting means with the network. Meanwhile, the signals passing through the female USB connector would be sent to the converting means and transformed in forms of between USB standard and ethernet standard, thereby ensuring the signals communicating between the computer and the network.

The seller would like to be granted a license back.

The seller may consider selling these patents individually.
