This works great. Only problem was when setting it up you must turn off the microsoft firewall in order to automatically setup the server. The instructions do not mention this, but it is buried on the help site. Once this was discovered the setup took a couple of minutes for each computer.

Not Compatible with All Printers

on 11/9/2007

It does not work with HP Officejet G85 All-in-one, but it did with the Brother HL-5050 laser and HP P1000 Photosmart printers. Here is a link of compatible printers from Netgear support: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101648.asp . Conclusion: If it's a USB printer, it should work! Read More

Product Overview

Multi-user access to your printer is now simpler than ever. NETGEAR's USB Mini Print Server does away with the hassles of sharing your printer among multiple PCs. Its easy external USB connection links one USB printer to as many as three PCs, so different network users can run multiple print jobs at the same time from anywhere on a home or office network. The attractive case design looks great in any environment, and its compact size allows you to place it close at hand or out of the way to open up your work area. Easy setup with NETGEAR's Smart Wizard install assistant saves you time and effort so you're up and running in minutes. Since no parallel printer cable is needed, it saves you money, too.
