    USB Notebook replicator

    I am looking for a USB 2.0 replicator for my generic notebook with the following parameters.

    1Gigabit Lan
    1VGA
    2PS2
    2USB

    Can anyone help.

    Do you mean a powered USB hub? These can be found most anywhere. Unless I'm missing something, that should be all that you need. Here's an example:

    I thought he meant a port replicator that can handle those devices and plugs into his laptop via the USB port.

    Is that it, ncitek?

    Yeah, I interpreted it to mean something like these:

    I think the specific mix you're after is going to be impossible to find. If you're prepared to sacrifice the gigabit requirement and go with 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet instead you might be alright, or else if you want gigabit then you probably won't get PS/2 ports.

    Basically, but it's a box you plug in with USB, instead of plugging your laptop into the box using a proprietary connector.

    Thanks for the ganders

    Yes, Like a docking station. One usb connection from laptop to the replicator. The peripherals nic, monitor, ps/2 ports etc. all plug in elsewhere on the replicator.
    I will keep looking and thanks for the posts.
