Summary: Many of the reviews here are accurate and valuable. The most important piece of advice is to contact Linksys and see if your printer is supported. Having set the environment up with my HP OfficeJet K60 everything seems fine. When I go to print however, the application recognizes the printer and even knows what port it is connected on. Unfortunately, everything I print goes into a black hole.
Summary: There are a number of posts indicating that this does not work. Just wanted to say that it worked on two of my printers. Epson 870 and Samsung 1710 laser. But it is not flawless getting it going. I seem to have a power on sequence problem. I used to turn the printer/server on at the same time. It won't initialize properly when its powered up at the same time. I've haven't figure the power on sequence but seems like the printer has to be powered on and initialized first.
Summary: Linksys says this is a USB print server. Maybe it is. But neither their literature nor anything on their website tells you that it doesn't work with some printers. And not some strange brand. Canon printers. I have a Canon F80 which works just fine by direct USB connection. But after 30 min with technical support, the tech decides to ask what my printer is. He then says that according to their documents the USB print server doesn't work with my printer.
Summary: I got it working with a HP DeskJet 5550 within 1 hour... the primary problem I ran into was when trying to install the print driver using the linksys software. When I went so far as to get a port installed onto the system, then ran the HP driver install using the port that was created for the printer, it worked.
Summary: I know some people got into problems installing this print server but in my case it was hassle free. So I decided to give you some tips: 1. Before buy the print server, call linksys and ask if your printer is compatible with their product. In my case, my brand new Epson Stylus C82 was (lucky me!). 2. Install the printer drive and its utility in all the computers before you try to install the printer server. 3. Follow the instructions provided by linksys.
Summary: When you buy a "multifunction" printer, you are locking yourself into connecting it directly to a (Windows) PC. I bought a PPS1UW and an HP 7550 Color printer on the same day. I ran into the exact same problems that others have commented on, but I know who to blame. HP. HP. HP. How can you create a printer that requires "special drivers" to print? What's wrong with good old PostScript? What's wrong with standards?
Summary: ... This product works with a Canon I850 and Windows XP in Ethernet mode. The wireless option was not tested. The documentation for setup and configuration is inadequate. If you are using this product with a Canon I850 and Windows XP I have the following suggestions for installation: 1. Throw out the Linksys quick start guide. 2. Attach the I850 directly to your computer and install the Canon print driver. 3.
