Finally, a product that does what a modern-day small-office print server ought to do, and do it well. It's truly a "set-it and forget-it" arrangement. I had a bit of reconfiguration I needed to do because you can't tell the print server to use any other wireless secuity key than key 1, but otherwise, completely painless setup (< 10 minutes including reconfiguring the wireless security). We can now scan, fax, and print no problem from anywhere within wireless range, as though the MFP (an HP OfficeJet 6110) was directly attached to the laptops' USB ports. Although I was considering waiting for a Wireless N version, G is fast enough for scanning, and most certainly printing.

-MM quote

The print server is everything that I wanted it to be. The only problem that I'm having is that if I have a software program initiate a scan, the software doesn't realize the print server is connected, even though it is. If I initiate the scan from the printer it works flawlessly. My wife's issue is that she has had to learn to wait for the print job to actually finish printing before powering off her laptop. Unlike using a shared printer on our home network, where she could print and the job was spooled on another pc, the print job actually spools up locally. Not really a down side, just something different for her.

Not a bad piece of equipment

by mikemike0818@adelphia.net on 2/11/2007

This wasnt a bad deal for this little piece of equipment for the price. I recently had a WPS54GU2 but once I upgraded to the all-in-one printer, I could no longer use that printer server so I sought out to find a printer server that could handle the all-in-one functions. At first I purchased D-Links all-in-one print server and after hours of fiddling and finally calling tech support I was told that it did not support that model. Come to find out it didnt support much at all! So I returned that and purchased this device. It was slightly more expensive and it didnt list my specific printer as tested for compatibility but i figured I would give it a try. Installation was a little tricky but if you follow the step-by-step instructions, self installation wont be too cumbersome and will take less than 15 minutes. Performance wise the print server has worked great so far! I am now able to print, fax and copy from any computer anywhere in my house. Printing is noticably slower than the actual direct USB connection but that was expected. Overall, I would say this a great little device that was well worth the money for the convenience. Read More
