Please understand... I am not an IT professional, but this item does take a pretty good understanding of basic network configuration techniques to get it up and running. I had to manually enter its assigned DHCP address and reassign it to a static IP address on my linksys home network. Then, I had to lookup the help topics on Linksys' web site for installing a printer using Windows XP LPR. I did all of that because the setup CD was worthless across my existing home network. I have it up and running now with my hp deskjet 3650, and it is a GREAT product for only $55!

This is actually the 2nd PSUS4 Print Server that I have purchased from Buy.com. The first was for an HP LaserJet 1300 and it worked great. I decided that I would try it out on my HP PhotoSmart 7550 and it worked there as well. The installation is only slightly tricky in that you can't use the HP printer installation software since the software is designed to find the printer connected to your PC's USB ports. Since it can't find it, it won't install the full printer suite. The work around is to install the Linksys Print Server first and then use the Windows printer install option, select the Linksys print server port as the port the printer is attached to and then use the "Have Disk" option to manually install the printer driver from the CD supplied with your printer. You won't have the full functionality of the HP printer software suite (like the window that shows how much ink is left in the cartridges), but it's a small price to pay for being able to print from any PC in the house.

Nice little print server

by Mr. M on 8/22/2007

Ordered this print server Monday got it delivered Wednesday its a great Upgade for your network installation was fairly easy set it up on my 2 Dells works great with my Linksys firewall router and HP deskjet printer the bad things about it is the power plug is on the side not the back so it takes up more space, and it gets kinda hot thats probably why its got a metal housing other than that Linksys gets the Job done!!

Couldn't have been easier

I purchased this print server to replace a D-Link that had to be constantly reset. All I did was fire up the administration software, configure the Linksys server with the address assigned to the old server, and immediately started printing from all our networked computers. The only issue wasn't the fault of the server but of a user not allowing the new device access through their firewall (the MAC was different causing the alert).

Product Overview

The Linksys PrintServer for USB with 4-Port Switch is a double upgrade for your network. First, it lets you connect a USB printer directly to your network, eliminating the need to dedicate a PC to print serving chores. Using a PrintServer frees up your "print share PC" so you don't have to leave it on all the time. It also removes the printing bottleneck, and sets your PC free to do more useful work.
