Netgear Wireless Printer Server actually has two USB ports that allow you to connect up to two printers. The installation can be a bit tricky -- you first have to connect (via wire) directly to one of the four wired ports in order to give it the WEP key to your Wireless Router access. If you pass this step, the rest of the setup/installation is pretty much automatic -- just watch it run. 20 minutes is all it takes, with all three laptops connected and printed successfully to the printer. Now, Vista users out there, you will be able to connect to the printer port (local TCP/IP connection) with ease. But, you will have to find online the printer drive to support your printer on Vista. (I have a Canon i860 and have to go to Canon website to download the driver for Vista.)

I have had this wireless print server for several months and it has been nothing but trouble - I'm tossing it in the garbage. I set up several cabled and wireless computers to work with it and every few days they simply stop seeing the server. Their overseas tech reps, when you can understand them, either try to blame the firewall (which I had deactivated) or the printer, which has nothing to do with the failure of my computers to even see the server. You are much better off connecting the printers to a networked computer and leaving it on to print through.

No Problems

by Bob on 4/4/2007

Setup of the WGPS606 with a Netgear WGR614v6 router was a breeze. I am a technical guy, but I think it would be easy for anyone. For now, I set it up just as a print server at my fiancee's house and so far it is working like a charm. I plan to use it as a bridge when I move my office there, with at least 2 PCs and a VoIP phone connected through it. I tested the bridge functionality when I installed it by turning off the wireless on her laptop and plugging up directly to the WGPS606 and the internet worked almost instantly without any setup.

Product Overview

Would you and the other users in your network like the freedom to print wirelessly? And, to connect to more than one printer, without having to add print servers, wireless adapters, or unsightly Ethernet cables? With NETGEAR's 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server with 4-Port Switch, now you can! In seconds, you can connect two printers and four PCs to your wireless network - all with one simple device. NETGEAR's 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server has two USB ports, as well as a wireless Ethernet bridge mode with a 4-port switch. That means you can connect your computer to your high-end color printer for your business use, and send the kids' documents to your older Inkjet printer - all without wires! Best of all, more than four users can use the printer, without adding any additional wireless adapters.

You can place your printers anywhere in your home or office that works best for you, and share access to them via your wireless network. You'll get the most out of both printers, and you won't have to buy two separate print servers.
