Cannot print to Samsung LaserWriter

bobinkop, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: I bought this based on positive comments on review boards like this one. However, the installation from CD was awkward -- I missed one detail and had to uninstall the driver, reboot, and try again from the beginning. Its ports work fine -- it gave me the extra ports I needed off my Netgear "wall-plugged" adaptor. But I cannot get anything to print.
  • Pros: Added 3 ports to my home network via a house-wiring adaptor (1st port is connected to the adaptor -- duh!)
  • Cons: Installation "wizard" is awkward. Does not seem to work with all printers.

Mac OS X with this product? Forget it.

  • Summary: This is without question the lamest computer product I have ever had the misfortune to try. Absolutely nothing on the box or the enclosed materials tells you that this thing WILL NOT WORK with Macintosh computers. Linksys' technical support is atrocious. I was on hold for more than an hour, then got some chippie who couldn't speak intelligible English.
  • Pros: Nice little box with pretty picture of product on it.
  • Cons: Will not work with Macs unless you are a hacker/techie/mystic.

replacement of hp jetdirect

  • Summary: Used this thing with a hp laserjet 3500 as the original HP JetDirect stopped functioning. 5 minutes later it was working again. Fixed IP address. Works also from switch to switch so you do not have to find an uplink port. This saved some $ (euros) opposed to original HP stuff. Writing this review cost me more time than setting up the printserver.
  • Pros: 5 minutes install - recognised printer directly (hp 3500 LaserJet)
  • Cons: have not established (too short)

Linksys PSUS4 Print Server

  • Summary: I bought this server for a Canon multifunction. Unfortunately, the Linksys website and the server's manual do not indicate which printers work with the server. I ended up buying another printer to share on the network and the server does a great job with just a regular Lexmark printer. In addition, the server is a lot smaller than it looks in the pictures and takes up very little space.
  • Pros: Small, fast, and reliable.
  • Cons: Compatibility

  • Summary: We tried to use this server in conjuntion with the HP1100D printer and could not get the combination to work. However through troubleshooting with HP & Linksys it seems that the printer is the source of the problem. Switched the Linksys PrintServer to another printer and it works fine.

  • Summary: Well, I grew tired of the pickiness of my HP Deskjet 6127 with regards to cartridges (HP is famous for trying to keep you from using refilled cartridges). I wanted a good photo printer, but nothing I found had network support (at least, nothing that didn't have the same cartridge problem as my HP). So, I decided to try the PSUS4 from Linksys.
  • Pros: Worked w/ my Canon PIXMA IP3000. Also includes a 4 port switch.
  • Cons: Does not work w/ all printers ... bidi features disabled ...

  • Summary: Double upgrade was the key decision for me. More ports the better. With XP SP2, setup was a bit clumsey. Disable software firewalls if using a router firewall.
  • Pros: Printer Server and Hub
  • Cons: No USB 2.0 support

  • Summary: I am pleased with this purchase. I am now able to work in my living room and send print commands to my printer which is located in my loft.
  • Pros: Well, this works just fine for me. I am not a sophisticated user, but it does exactly what I need it to do. I have it connected to a Linksys wireless router. Installation was not difficult.

  • Summary: Purchased the Linksys to run with my Linksys Wireless-B Broadband Router and Compaq A3000 Printer. Once configured, runs well. Cannot beat the price and included USB cable. Would recommend to anyone for an inexpensive way of utilizing one printer for several computers.
  • Pros: Price, supplied USB cable, ease of setup.
  • Cons: Runs very warm. Had to contact Linksys Support for assistance in configuring my Compaq A3000 Printer.
