It works fine with my HP LaserJet 4 Plus. It took me a little while to figure out the setup and understand that it creates a kind of virtual parallel port. Once I got beyond that blip, everything worked fine.

-Anonymous quote

I have several PS101 and they work great! I am sharing laser and impact printers. Once setup, I can forget about them! This last one I was connecting to an old Okidata ML320 Turbo and the installer would not find the printer automatically as in previous installs. So I called tech support. Immediate transfer to non-English speaking person who knew nothing about the product except what he read in a book. Next level support was also very difficult to understand and just as helpful. Highest level of support spoke broken English at least, but at then end of the conversation claimed it could not work with my printer, no other solutions provided and I must return it to my vendor (BUY.COM of course!) Totally wasted 90 minutes of my life. I could not believe such a standard printer would not work so I manually setup the software and had it working in under 30 minutes. <br><br> If the installation wizard works or if you are somewhat technical, it is a great product. Incredible bang for the buck! If you have trouble with the installation - hope you have patience!

Product Overview

Share Your Printer with Everyone in your Home or Office
With the NETGEAR PS101 Mini Print Server, easy and convenient printer access is yours! This versatile mini print server gives home and office networks built-in efficiency because it allows multiple users to share a printer from anywhere on the network without sharing your PC. With this kind of flexibility, you can place your printer anywhere that's handy. The speedy Mini Print Server boasts a 10 Mbps Ethernet connection and supports multiple print jobs simultaneously. It features an easy, Web-based remote management tool and works with most laser and inkjet printers equipped with a parallel port. Since no parallel printer cable is needed, it saves you money, too.

Flexible
Lets you share a printer on a network without having to leave your PC on. You can locate that printer right where you want it - close at hand or out of the way. It's compatible with most parallel port printers (including bi-directional printers) from HP, Canon, Epson, Lexmark, and others.

Time-Saving
Removes the performance bottleneck you'd have with a dedicated, always-on PC acting as the print server. It supports multiple print jobs simultaneously, gives you a fast, 10 Mbps Ethernet connection, and is equipped with an on-board memory buffer for quicker printout delivery.

Easy to Use
NETGEAR Print Server software makes it simple to install on all popular versions of Microsoft Windows. You can manage the print server remotely with an easy, Web browser interface. Then you can share a printer on your LAN without sharing your computer.
