update

Rufus L., Newegg
26 February 2014
  • Summary: I am adding this review to update and upgrade the review. On booting into Vista(64bit) today, one day after I initially got it installed and had problems, several test prints worked properly. The mftr responded to my initial report immediately and I listed my experiences but have not heard back yet.
  • Pros: Works as expected on both Linux and Vista(64bit)
  • Cons: Some problems installing on Vista; see previous review.

  • Summary: Either this mftr or Microsoft have not implemented compatible standardized protocols successfully. Since Linux seems to work well, I'd tend to point the finger at MS. However, from a buyers POV it doesn't matter - it's a substandard solution with Vista(64bit).
  • Pros: Can be made to work.
  • Cons: I install manually so I know what's being set. Finding the factory defaults in the users docs requires time and good glasses: IP=192.168.2.2; userid=admin; pswd=1234. Works OK w/Linux. Vista is a problem. After dl'g a driver from the mftr, (Samsung ML-1740: I found/tried various drvrs released wh...

It works

Daniel G., Newegg
10 August 2007
  • Summary: It took a little while to find the password in the documentation to actually login and configure the device (1234). Also, I tried to set it to get a dynamic address, but the software wasn't happy. I set it back to static IP and everything is working just fine now.
  • Pros: It works. Setup was relatively painless.
  • Cons: Poorly labeled documenation.

Excellent print server

Anthony L., Newegg
3 July 2007
  • Summary: The print server should not affect the ability of the printer in any way. If the printer was able to print, it shall still be even after installing the print server. The question is whether the network port is installed correctly.
  • Pros: Easy to install, works right away flawlessly. Small product, great performance.
  • Cons: None.

Not bad once you get it working

Gary H., Newegg
13 June 2007
  • Summary: Know the ISP-assigned IP address of your router and your computer, and manually assign a compatible IP address to the printserver. You will be saved headache.
  • Pros: Everything seems to be okay with the physical product. Now that it is working, I am very pleased.
  • Cons: Painful time gettting it setup. By default, the installation software assumes you are not connected to the internet, and assigns an ip address that conflicts. (C'mon, how many people really use the internet these days?)
