Summary: The reviews made me a little skeptical, but I'm glad I bought this. I previously had a USB printer hooked up to our office network through a wireless router that had USB ports on it. We've moved to a bigger setup, and the router was moved to a new location. But, we still needed network access to the USB printer. I was afraid we would have to run proprietary software on everybody's computers in order to print. Definitely not the case.
Summary: I didn't have too much trouble getting the USB variant to work (I used the NETGEAR WNCE2001 Universal WiFi Internet Adapter to get wireless networking because the wireless version of this print server seemed a bit sketchy from reviews), but I'll put in the short instructions for more advanced users: * This device will start up and configure itself to 192.168.0.10 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0, but the wrinkle is that you have to set yourself to be 192.168.0.101 or else...
Dependable & stable USB print server. I really like it, but knocked off 1 star for documentation.

Summary: TP-Link makes really dependable products that generally sell for considerably less than the competition. So I decided to give the TP-Link USB2.0 Port Fast Ethernet Print Server (TL-PS110U) a try, especially seeing as their other products in my home network are working perfectly . Its a "install it and forget it" device. Have not even had to reset it once since powering it up. A HP 812C DeskJet printer (USB 1.0) is connected.
Summary: Not for the newbie this is old technology mostly replaced by network enabled printers if you do not understand networking and rely on plug and pray you need to read the entire manual and perhaps go online for a tutorial on tcp ip networking this device works great and does exactly what it was designed to do.
