Awesome router - and the print server DOES work with Macs...

Summary: Just to correct/clarify the below reviewer's statement: The DI-714P+ (as wil *all* of D-Link's print server products) works fine with a Macintosh so long as you are attaching a PostScript printer. They are pretty clear about this in their documentation. An added bonus is that it does not require the addition of any other software - unlike Windows!
Summary: Have had the router for a week now and after the setup hassle, it's worked well. My old Lexmark Z32 inkjet printer works fine after turning off bi-directional connection. I'm using a Netgear MA521 notebook adapter after incredible frustration with the D-Link adapter originally purchased. I thought the Quick Installation Guide could be more clear-then again I've never done this before. Use the D-Link FAQ site-it helped me figure out how to attach to AOL.
Summary: I've had nothing but pleasure from this device. It's been running for three weeks now, without a hitch. I'm using all aspects of it: wired switch, wireless switch, print server, firewall with DMZ. Configuration was fairly straightforward, but the "Quick Installation Guide" is poorly written. If you follow the Configuration Wizard, though, it walks you through everything you need to get started. Mmm... I take that back. I had to power-cycle my modem before it would work.

Summary: I have the LinkSys BEFW11S4 wireless broadband router at home, and it has been working great for 2 years. But, I needed a product that had a print server for all the computers on my home network. Though, there aren't a lot of choices out there for a combined router & print server - I found this D-Link DI-714P+ at Amazon... This product worked PERFECTLY right out of the box. The setup took about 15 minutes total, and anybody could do it!
great product, combining all the needed functions in one

Summary: I tried Linksys 802.11b products and got very dispointed in their signal strengths. D-Link is a totally different story. I have used D-Link's DWL-900+AP, DI-614+, and DWL-650+. No matter wherever you go in the house (even in the garage with doors closed), you get almost 100% signal strength. DI-714p+ is a great product with all the needed functions in one package, built on the solid grounds of DWL-900+AP.
Summary: Setup: fairly straightforward. There is a "wizard" setup for those who don't like to go through every single option screen. The screen navigation is laid out in a simple, but not intuitive manner - it takes a few moments to realize the buttons on the left change with tab options at the top, but the buttons on the left don't change if there are multiple screens on the right (like "next page" or a button to press).
