Performance

I have a laser printer & an ink jet on my desk. It was always a hassle to unplug one and plug the other in, not to mention having to keep my machine on for others on the network to print. The linksys printserver drives both printers, and works great. Having the 4 port switch on the back was even better...I could plug a notebook in right near the printers. It's a win in my book.

-Sean quote

The print server regularly gets a case of amnesia and must be reset on a daily basis. More specifically, the first print job of the day cannot find the print server until it is reset. The drivers available on Linksys's website are horribly out of date, and technical support is helpless. The manual does not reflect the actual settings on the product. My feeling is that this is an orphaned product. I liked the concept, but it has proven to be a waste of money and an even greater waste of time. Don't buy this product.
