Summary: I read all the reviews on this, saw other places that had good reviews. Let me just say I have it worked on Windows 7 (32 bit), Windows XP .. I had zero issues! I'm just a home user looking to use my HP 4L easily without the parallel cable.. I followed the directions on the book and had it working in 5 minutes.. not sure what these other reviewers were using but I had no problem. I will say that initially ya it boots with an IP..
Summary: I purchased this so that I could share my Deskjet on my network, after retiring the Dell workstation to which is was connected, and replacing with a Mac. Perhaps this product is Windows-oriented, because it stop responding after every print job, and must be reset (walk to the printer, take it offline, pull the power cord out of the print server unit, plug it back in, then put the printer online). The support site is less than helpful, and the product is discontinued.
Summary: Works great. I made the mistake of setting a configuration password via the web browser. After that I couldn't log in. (Perhaps I didn't know the correct username?)I was able to clear the password by installing the PS Admin software on an XP box. Note: PS Admin won't run on modern versions of Windows. Lucky for me too, because the other solution is to send the Print Server back to D-Link for replacement.
Summary: Worked exactly as described. Set-up was a piece of cake and configured itself for us. We hooked up a couple of iMacs from different offices to an old HP 5MP laser printer. We run it off the office wi-fi. So sweet!
Summary: Maybe I got a bad unit, or maybe not. I purchased this print server based on all the glowing the reviews for ease of set up and reliability. I followed the instructions to the letter, however, after networking only two machines to this server, it froze up and refused to respond to any input. That's when I called a professional. After he monkeyed with it for a couple of hours, even he admitted defeat.
Summary: Worked perfectly after setup. Uses an odd default IP address so setting it up on a network is best accomplished on a test-bed and then moving it to your network. Will even fit inside an HP LaserJet 6P if you leave the cable cover off after installation.
