Excerpt: This unit is bidirectional, it did work great with my canon multifunction printer . It was a bit more difficult to install the drivers for Mac, had to download them from Their website because the drivers cd that came with the unit did not have the Appropriate drivers for Mac.
Summary: I just want to print from several computers in the house to a laser printer. Occasionally it worked - usually it has me uninstalling and re-installing the software & device. I am back @ newegg to shop for a wireless print server (finally!
Pros: not a single one
Cons: This is the tiniest piece of frustration you will ever have. Hangs printer, 'looses' printer, needs to be re-connected to the router regularly. Total piece of junk.
Excerpt: It works ok, but its complicated to install, need to have an open program to use it and only one user can print at time, if you need to use it and there is an other user connected you need to ask him to close the connection before you print.
Summary: Works with Windows 7 fairly well; does not work with Mac 10.9 machines on the same home network. The USB interface is basic and most of the functions of the printer are unavailable; i.e., status, supply levels, printer queue, etc.
Summary: This was a fair-priced and easy to install print server. We only have a few computers we need to intstall and this fit what we were looking for perfect. The install-cd walked us through the steps fairly quickly and logically. No real problems and the wireless printing is working well.
Excerpt: I installed two TEW-MFP1 servers on my home network. One was attached to a Canon iP4920 and the other to a Canon Pro9000. Now my three computers can share these printers. Each computer runs on a different OS (XP, 7 & 8.1). Only setup problem was caused by my Norton Security Suite.
