This product was easy to set up and works great. Once you plug in your printers, on Windows it will create an executable file to define them to Windows. I don't have a multi-function printer so I don't know how that works but I didn't have any problem setting up my two printers on Windows and Ubuntu Linux. One con is probably a Vista problem but I'm not sure. When I installed I logged in on my id in Vista and set up the printers. I then switched users to my wife's id and tried to set up the printers but it failed with an error. It seems that only one user can use one printer at a time. Another con is that the manual doesn't explain how to reset the device to factory default if my make a mistake. I didn't look close at the default static IP address and I could not find it on my network. I finally found the out how to reset it to factory defaults through the FAQs on their web site (hold the reset until the lights flash) and started over. After that it worked fine.

I used the $50 off credit card rebate + manufacturers rebate; making the net total cost <$10. While it has an easy to use setup interface; I couldn't get the unit working. Finally call their support line, they had me set-up the unit w/static IP address rather than a dynamic address. Unit finally started working. After a while I noticed a slow down on my wireless communications, the status LEDs on my switch indicated a lot of traffic. I didn't really need the rangeBooster optiion, because most of my equipment was in my office. Turned off the wireless option, and the wireless network seems to be working normally now. The network antennas were only about 18" apart, so I assumed that the signal bouncing between each antenna caused the extra traffic - so I'm running a hard-wire connection.

We just purchased this printserver to help with printing from multiple computers and not having a wirless network in the house. It was easy to setup and install. It also works great for both the PC's & Mac's together. I highly recommend this product. Read More

Works on more scanners than claimed!

by Brian on 3/25/2008

It is a bit of a pain to set up on new computers (can't just go to \\printserver or whatever and double-click and have it download drivers, etc. and set it up like you can when sharing from another computer) and the instructions are a little lacking on that part of the process. Their generated EXE to install the printer doesn't seem to work reliably so I figured out what it was trying to do and just do that by hand, works great. Scanning functionality is easy to set up, but is limited to single-page PDFs for flatbed scanners. However, it supported my MFP even though it wasn't in the list of supported and it's the only product I've seen that actually works with MFPs so I still have to give it a good rating! Read More

Product Overview

The D-Link RangeBooster G™ Multifunction Print Server (DPR-1260) is D-Link's most versatile and easiest to use Print Server yet. When attaching multiple devices, the Quick Installation Wizard takes all the work out of setting up the Print Server and configuring the attached printers. Multiple ports give you the option of adding multiple printers or multifunction printers to the network. RangeBooster G technology improves wireless performance, reducing the time required to send print jobs to the print server.

Tested with over 100 different printer models, this Print Server offers class-leading device compatibility. Using the web-based interface, easily scan documents and photos directly to your computer. This print server is compatible with a wide range of USB multifunction printers including the scanning functionality of select multifunction printers and is backward compatible with USB 1.1/1.0 printers.

The Ethernet port on the Print Server can be used as a wireless bridge. This provides wireless connectivity for any Ethernet-enabled device, such as a computer, Digital Video Recorder (DVR), or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) to the wireless network.

D-Link's new RangeBooster G™ Multifunction Print Server (DPR-1260) allows you to wirelessly share up to 4 USB Multifunction Printers (MFP) on your network. This innovative new print server allows multiple users to print using one of the four connected MFPs. By supporting multiple printers over a wireless connection, this new print server is the ideal solution for your home, classroom, or office.

Simply plug your USB printer into one of the four ports, run the automatic configuration wizard, and you are ready to start printing and scanning over your wireless network. For extra network connectivity, you can also use the DPR-1260 to provide wireless connectivity to any ethernet-enabled device, such as a computer or network-attached storage (NAS).
