OK this is kinda neat how you set it up. First I turned off my printer, plugged this adapter in the special Centronics port on the back of my printer and then plugged in the power for this wireless adapter. I made sure I had the little switch on the back set to Configuration and NOT normal. Then I turned the printer back on. Then from my PC I typed in the IP address in my web browser and I was into the configuration screens. I then followed the instructions to enter in my wireless info with WEP encryption and all, which is rather easy once you see it in front of you. Then I setup the printer like any other printer in the add printer screen on my Windows 2000 Pro PC. Then I did a test print and I was able to print just fine. This took all but 10 minutes to do. I was very pleased with D-Link's web based configuration and how simple everything was when you actually do it. The printer reacts just as it did when it was connected to my PC, but now when my wife wants to print from her PC I don't have to have my PC on since the printer is no longer connected to my PC. I even cleared up a spot on my desk where the printer used to be, and now it isn't teathered to my PC so we placed it in a better spot where it is close to both of our PCs. I am happy and feel this product is worth the price.

My printer is in a better spot now. I am now able to move my printer off my desk. The setup takes a few minutes, but it really isn't difficult. If you setup your wireless network this should be a breeze. This one device basically replaces your PC and the printer cable that ties the printer to the PC. Now all the computers on my network can use the printer without having to have the main computer turned on. A nice convienient addition to any wireless network.
