Summary: I've owned the C-6700WG for over a year. It's been LAN-connected to my Canon S800. It works great with my XP-based system, but as has already been reported, it works only in RAW mode with Win 7 unless one upgrades the CX Print software to rev. 3.8.0. That revision is NOW available on the Silex America web site at [...]. I'd suggest you now get the zipped file there rather than in Europe.
Summary: Canon Technical Support pointed me to this device to connect my laser imageCLASS MF6530 multi-function device to the network. It works as advertised. Install and set up was easy, and using the latest software from their web site, it's printing just fine from Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7(x64) clients. My interest was in network printing. I've not tried/used the scanning function via the network as I have other scanners.
Summary: I recently installed the Silex C-6700WG wired/wireless print server in my home network. Because my Canon MP610 printer is physically close to my router, I installed the C-6700WG using a wired connection. I ignored the product installation CD and instead downloaded the latest software and firmware update from the Silex America site ([...]). The CX User Software there (as of the date of this review) is version 3.7.1 (11/13/2009).
Great Wireless Print Server for compatible products such as Canon D480
3 January 2010
Summary: I am using this product with my Canon D480. This is a great wireless print server, compatible with a lot of printers, specifically my Canon D480. Silex, makes this print server, which is a brand of Canon. So the good thing is when you call Canon for any question, Canon will answer your question and help you install it, if you need any help.
Summary: Have this Silex unit with a Canon MP-530. Works like a dream! I held back on going wireless mainly with all of the negative comments out there about wireless printers and wireless print servers. This combo, however, is great! As long as you follow install directions which were well done given that the whole install is a little tricky, printing and scanning from multiple computers works as advertised.
Summary: The Silex installed easily and works flawlessly with my Canon multifunction laser printer. Do not take that as a 'given' for similar devices. I started by buying 'Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer with Multifunction Printer Support' which ended up supporting printing only after using workarounds found on the web and it did NOT support the multifuntion aspects of my Canon at all.
