Summary: I did have a problem with the installation wizard being confused with both printers having the same ip address. As mentioned previously, I put in a different ip address in the wizard and corrected it in the printer properties later. The second printer worked perfectly.
Pros: Easy set up. Both my Nec laser and Hp Deskjet work perfectly over the network. Great product!
Summary: I bought this because I needed the parallel port for my old Epson Action Laser 1500 printer and a USB port for my new HP All-in-One color inkjet printer.

I've had this D-link print server now for a couple of months now, and I have been extremely pleased with the purchase.
Pros: Very easy setup and user interface, and it WORKS!
Summary: Lowest price for what I needed, easy to setup, I have four computers 2 with Win XP, one Win 98 and one Win ME, all were setup easily, two computers thru ethernet, and two via a wireless access point. Highly recommended.
