Summary: As nowadays everything is becoming a router I have not yet had the oportunity to test the router of the DI 704UP. I own three of these with different printers (HP 1200 laserjet and Samsung 1210, 1430 and 1450), Finally I found something that is not stated in any documentation of these products. As Linksys Printserver PSU S4 you will have the same inconvenients with D Link: Try not to turn them off.
Summary: I can't give 5 stars for this product. I use it as my main router. It works but sometimes it crashes and I have to go through some pains to recover it. When I tried to upgrade it through the dlink website it is another problem. So I am still running it like the way it came. Concerning the built-in print server it worked one time since then I never got that working again. I don't recommend it. It is not a stable product.
Summary: I've ordered this router from Amazon; it came defective. Then a replacement router (same model 704up) - also defective. D-link tech support was surprised that their new routers were not functioning at all.
Summary: I am very computer savvy, however networks are not one of my strong points. I have worked with them before and can usually navigate my way around without too much trouble. However, this router has given me nothing but problems. I am using it in conjunction with a westell 2200 dsl modem on verizon dsl. Now my modem has built in routing capabilities so all i really need is a switch, however I also needed a print server, so I opted for this.
Summary: Having recently gotten DSL and having two laptops I wanted to have internet access from both independently. This device allowed that and also I was able to share one printer on the same cable goind throught the router; a nice plus. Installation went smoothly and it was up and running in less than 30 minutes. Doc was good but read it through first.
Summary: Warning : The product description says "USB print server" not "Maybe a USB print server". The list of the printers that are actually supported is buried in their website. I had no trouble connecting a Windows 2000 PC to a LAN port and using my DSL connection but a Windows XP computer, connected through a 10Mbps hub, even on the same port, could not see any network connection. It looks as if the 10/100 autosensing had a problem.
Summary: I am happy with this router. I have a HP845C USB printer that was not listed as being supported on the D-link web site, but I had no problem networking my 2 home pc's to access DSL internet and the printer. I was unable to find another product with the USB print server feature with the router. I have had it for a month now and no problems.
Summary: Beware of a few things. First the print server is compatble with very few printers. Go to D-Link's website and make sure your printer is compatible. Also if you are running a firewall on your PC's they may not see each other. The documentation is very sparse. The unit has a firewall but no explanation as to how it functions - your just suppose to trust it! D-link support will blow you off with ANY network questions.
Summary: Hi, The router function works as expected. Unfortunately I Paid for the printserver too. It does not work with my Epson Stylus cx4100,D-Link could at least put a list of actual supported printers in its web site. Altough its such an old product it is still sold in Brazil.
Summary: Set it to use as a router and usb print server. In no time at all I had my canon mp730 up on the network. I looked for this same type of setup and there is no other company I could find that supplied a product that is a usb print server and a router in one at this time. I also have a Netgear wireless router mr814v2 I was using previously and I like the Dlink features more. If you need to set up some parental control it gives you that as well.
