I bought this wireless print server primarily because I wanted to use the wireless interface (had too many wires around my PC). My printer is HP LaserJet 2015D. The shipment arrived and I tried to hook it up to my Vista powered PC, but it just didn't work at all. I came through the first step which is configuring the print server, but couldn't make it for the second step installing the client software. The original software that comes with it is not Vista compatible and therefore it crashes right away. However, I found a way out. What you need to do is to go to Control Panel -> Printers -> Add Printer .. Then choose "Add Network, wireless or Bluetooth printer". Then, my printer HP2015D wasn't listed there, so I clicked "THe printer that I want isn't listed". On the next page, I chose "Select a shared printer by name" where I typed the HTTP address where the LinkSys wireless print server is published: http://<the wireless print server IP>:631/ipp/P1 Then you have to pick up your printer's driver and that's all. Overall, I think this product is really great for the money specially compared to the wireless printer which HP sells out for above $100.

Cool gear to have, but be careful.

by ~PH on 10/15/2007

This is really a cool gear from Linksys. The only problem is it's not compatible with a lot of laser printers. Before buying, make sure to check for printer compatibility. It's not in the Linksys website either. Read More

Product Overview

The Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer lets you connect a USB printer directly to your network, eliminating the need to dedicate a PC to print sharing 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.

Connect the PrintServer directly to your network by 10/100 Ethernet cable, or wirelessly over 54Mbps Wireless-G (802.11g). The wireless option lets you put your printer wherever you want to, without having to run cables. Whichever way the PrintServer is attached to your network, both your wireless and wired PCs will have access to it, and the printer it's connected to. And if you don't use wireless for general networking in your office, you can still use the Wireless-G connection in ad-hoc mode to print from visiting Wireless-G and Wireless-B PCs.

The USB port is compatible with USB 1.1 printers, as well as printers that support the new high-speed USB 2.0 specification for even faster throughput. Your data is protected by up to 128-bit WEP encryption, or pre-shared-key WPA. A user-friendly Setup Wizard makes installation easy, the compact case fits anywhere, and the three megabyte print buffer size handles even large graphics-intensive print jobs. Let the Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer for USB 2.0 bring efficiency to your printing tasks.
