Summary: DP-G321 Print Server. Correct/Full Printer support is very limited. D-Link dropped the ball on this one. Wireless Security support is limited to WEP - so it says. WPA does not work in any of its forms. I invite D-Link to counter. In non-security fashion, wireless is fine. But if you are in any residential or crowded environment, do not buy this print server. (You'd be a fool for not using some sort of extra security and WEP is not it...) End of Story. [Yes.
Summary: This print server doesn't support WPA2 encryption making it incompatible with my wireless network. Fortunately, my printer is located near the wireless router so I plugged the printer directly into the router. I can print fine from OS X and Windows XP. My firmware version is 2.00. From a quick google search, it seems later versions were made but cannot be found.
Summary: Think twice before you buy this or any D-Link products. When this unit failed, it took my materials person 2 hours, 6 phone calls and 8 techs to get an RMA authorization. D-Link pay attention, you will be loosing business for poor performance. D-Link hassled my materials person instead of just issuing her an RMA. She had all of the information for the RMA prior to calling and it still took her 2 hours, 6 phone calls and 8 techs to get an RMA authorization!
Summary: Flexible for people with older printers because of the LPT-port. Took some effort to set up. D-Link's installation manual did not solv all the issues and their Customer Support could have done much better. It was hard to get to the right person/department, and their support person was not so skilful in the English language.
impossible to set up even with hours of bad tech support

Summary: Never was able to get this printer server to work and I spent 6 hours trying. Dlink tech support was horrible. Indian techs were hard to understand. The quality of the connection was bad. And they really didn't know what they were doing. Amazon was great. Took the server back and refunded my money with no hassle. I spend a lot with Amazon and have very few returns. I don't know if that was a factor in the great service.
Summary: I figured that I stood a good chance of a seamless upgrade since my router is also a d-link, but it was not problem-free. I did manage to clear things up pretty quickly and it turned out that in large part the error was mine, ...you have to follow the setup instructions EXACTLY...and it's worked beautifully ever since. I love not having to have one computer on all the time to allow other network computers to print and I've saved a bundle on electricity.
Summary: first on the box there is no sign that you need to have a compatable printer. Second the documentation stinks. I've tried for a week to hook up my hp psc1210 to it and no luck. I emailed tech suppport and after giving me info I could of read in the manual their response was "Oh well it your printer must not be compatable with it" Well before I drop my money on this I wish they would of told me what printers are supported.
Summary: I've wanted to get my old HP Laserjet III onto my wireless network for quite a while, but there hasn't been an available print server with WPA _and_ a parallel port. Motorola claims to have one, but admits that the WPA doesn't work, and Actiontec has discontinued their WPA capable print server. I had the DP-G321 up and running within twenty minutes of Fed Ex delivering it. The Quick Installation Guide is excellent, at least if you're running XP.
Summary: After a bit of sweat I've managed to get the printer working fine from both my XP and MAC OS Tiger computers ...... until I unplug the direct ethernet cable to the router that is needed for set-up. Then nothing happens i.e. no wireless printing. I suspect it's an IP addressing issue having read a helpful article here (take note D-link - Amazon is becoming a better support site than your own!).
