The first step in installing the Ultra Buddy Hub, would be to make all of the connections to the Buddy Hub. There are three to the back and up to seven to the front. On the back you need to plug in the USB-a to USB-b cables into the Buddy Hub, as well as the power adapter. These ports on the back side of the Buddy Hub are labelled, which make it an easy task to complete. Once you have all of this completed, you need to connect the USB cables for "Computer A" and "Computer B" into an open USB port on the computer. Again, this is another easy and self explanatory task.
Once all of the connections are made to the back of the Buddy Hub, you are now ready to begin to connect all of your USB devices. Before you are begin to do this, however, you will need to power down both computers and then power them up. I attempted to plug in the Buddy Hub "hot", however it would not work this way. After both of your computers are powered up, you may begin to use the Buddy Hub to connect your USB devices. They will all default to "Computer B" which has a green LED. If you wish to switch to "Computer A" you will need to press the button down and the LED will switch to a red color.
