bugs

Raymond G., Newegg
23 March 2012
  • Summary: With wireless printers coming of age these devices are becoming obsolete. Never found one that worked well, but this one may have been one of the best.
  • Pros: When it works it does most of what it's supposed to.
  • Cons: Forgets that printers are attached, must power off and on for it to find them again. Only works with static ip address. At least 10 times it has completely lost it's configuration forcing a reset and reconfigure. Has no provision to force install a printer, which is useful when upgrading OS to Vi...

  • Cons: Setup is a bit complicated. Not in stock

DONALD G., Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: This device sits on the self, then I dust it off and go through the pain of set-up. Last time I spent half a day with a D-Link tech as we reset and redid step by step until we sort of got it working, whcih worked great until the DHCP reset the IP..
  • Pros: Run print and scan jobs from your browser on Windows or Mac.

Unbelievably awful product

Michael G., Newegg
11 September 2010
  • Summary: Returning it after 3 days of frustration. Will not buy another D-Link product unless it's the last thing available in the world. D-Link has really slid down the chute. I used to be a big fan of D-Link products, but this one bad experience wiped out years of good will in my book.
  • Pros: Worked well for one day.
  • Cons: Installed exactly as described in the installation guide, but was all downhill from there. Drops connections, can't find the wireless signal from my router, can't find attached printers -- you name it, this poor excuse for a paperweight gets it wrong. Unbelievably poor quality for a D-Link product.

  • Pros: Still going great. Bought 2 years ago. The scanner function on my Canon MP470 is not compatible. However my Epson was and I can scan to my PC Win 7 64bit.
  • Cons: Check printer compatibility list on Dlink forum before you buy..

No problems whatsoever

Anonymous, Newegg
3 September 2010
  • Pros: Works with more devices than advertised. I bought this to act as a print server for a Brother HL-2140. D-Link's website only listed the Brother HL-2040 in their compatibility list so I was a bit wary of unboxing this, but I decided to try it and wasn't disappointed. Configuring new computers to u...
  • Cons: Setup may be intimidating for those who are not comfortable with setting up networks.

Terrible performance - Beware

Cozzi P., Newegg
30 August 2010
  • Pros: The printer server wold be nice in terms of allowing up to four printers to be connected to it. That's a very desirable feature ... if it works.
  • Cons: Erratic behavior. Have to reset it about ten times a day. Product support not very useful. They tell you to reset it. So, you have to reset it about three or four times for every print job. A total waste of time. Had to disconnect it and still searching for a better product. Totally disappointed ...

  • Pros: see my review - Canon MP600 & Epson PictureMate, Win 7 x64
  • Cons: none

It works

Mark M., Newegg
11 August 2010
  • Summary: So, I read a lot of the reviews and was a little hesitant to buy, but I needed a multi-port wireless print server, and the price was right. I'm on Win7 64 using a Canon MP600 and Epson PictureMate Deluxe. After getting no signal, I realized I had entered the print server's MAC address incorrectly.
  • Pros: Small, wireless, 4 ports.
  • Cons: Instructions could provide more detail; interface seems slow; so far doesn't work with my scanner.
