Summary: This replaced an old HP 10MB Jet Direct that was beginning to fail.
Pros: Not sure why some people have trouble setting this little guy up. My network IP schema does not match the default IP on the product, but that was not a problem. I connected network and power, popped in the CD, the Wizard found the unit on the network, I set a static IP that matched the IP port th...
Cons: Time will tell. As long as it keeps passing on print jobs, I'm happy.
Summary: Excellent printer server for reviving an old printer. A basic understanding of network IP setting might be helpful. Knowing how to log into your router to determine IP range and default gateway. Installed on two Windows 8.1 and one Windows 7 machines.
Summary: If you follow the directions and you know what IP address is available outside the DHCP range on your network, the setup is easy. Because the device is so simple and uses an older but universally supported protocol, you have to get every detail right on both the device setup and the computer printer...
Summary: I looked at a few print servers and this one was on the high side. But I'm glad I got this one. The setup Wizard was worth the extra cost. It went so easy I couldn't believe it. My network ip is 10.0.0,1 the print server comes with IP address 192.168.0.10.
Summary: This is a great Print Server. I used mine to make my older wired printer into a wireless printer. However it can also be used in many other applications. If anyone is wondering, I don't work for this company or anything like that.
Summary: Prior to getting this print server, our printer was connected via USB to a PC that was used primarily as a home theater DVR and that ran Microsoft Windows XP. The PC would need to be turned on in order to print from our laptops, which are our primary computing devices.
Summary: As some other reviewers pointed out, before doing anything else, connect the print server DIRECTLY to a PC and change the IP address on the print server to a static IP. For example, if your router's gateway is 192.168.0.1, set the static IP to something such as: 192.168.0.200.
Pros: I bought this to replace a Linksys PSUS4 print server that finally gave out after 8 years of great service with an HP LaserJet 1012. This print server has taken over without missing a beat.
