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. I am an electrical engineer, and I know a good machine/device when I see it, and I want to make a notation in here about what makes it work so well.
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. With the termination of support for Windows XP, and our switching to a satellite-based DVR system, that PC became obsolete, and I needed another way to print from the laptops, I connected the TP-LINK Print...
Summary: TP-LINK TL-PS110U Instructions were fairly simple and installed even on an older Windows XP machine just fine Would highly recommend this if you have a USB printer that does not have Ethernet capabilities I would also recommend the 2X USB Port version of this and they also have one a different one with a Storage Server TL-PS310U
Summary: For the price and what I needed it for it is fantastic. To be fair, though, I do have a lot of experience networking printers in an office environment. For those with experience, you can use the software that comes with it to set up the IP address, etc from one computer. After that it acts just like the old Unix lprd printers - pick the tcp/ip port and you're off and running. Very simple.
Summary: Although configuration isn't as simple as most home-users would like, it was a quick install. Keeping in mind that I have been trained and certified as a network administrator - this is an amazing little device. I wanted to network my older Samsung laser printer. It is amazing! Simply plug an ethernet cable in to the switch/router, and into the print server. Plug the USB cable into the print server, and plug in the print server.
Summary: I set it up for printing from my two macs. My printer is next to my router, so this works perfectly. My printer was not listed on their compatibility chart, and the specs don't mention mac support, but I haven't had any problems so far. However, you do need to do some setup. For example, it defaults to a specific IP, which I had to change to work with my network. You configure it by logging in through a web interface, it's basically like setting up a router.
Summary: I have three computers, with three different operating systems, Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, hooked up to my wireless/wired network. Previously, I used my desktop computer running XP to act as a print server for the two laptops connected wirelessly. This worked for the most part, but required having the desktop computer on at all times, not to mention said computer was definitely at the end of its life.
Summary: I followed the instructions in the manual to set this up using the browser interface. My router uses WPA encryption and I was able to set it up without issue. You do have to pay attention to detail. The ip addresses used during setup are specific and switch between 192.168.0.10 and 192.168.1.10. You will need to be careful to match the address in your laptop or whatever wireless computer you use to do the setup as well.
