Summary: Using Jay Goldberg's setup instructions, I was able to set up this print server and three computers in less than an hour (including moving my printer close enough to my router to connect with a ethernet cable). The print server simply works as advertised.
Summary: I used this on a home wireless system, which included a HP Inkjet (960c). The system worked well once it was set up. The instruction booklet is not as helpful as it should be, but linksys tech assistance people are patient and generally knowledgeable. On the whole, a reasonably priced solution that works well once you have it installed.
Summary: Configuring the WPS11 Wireless Print Server ---- Setting Up the Print Server The easiest way to set up the WPS11 is to use the web interface (Web GUI). This doesn't require the Linksys Bi-Admin software. In order to access the Web GUI, you need to know what the IP of the PrintServer is.
Summary: I had it working with OS/X in less than 5 minutes via cups. Windows XP, of course, took much more effort and time. So far it has been working flawlessly except for the usual Windows XP related driver troubles. I would recommend this product, especially for use with OS/X or other Unix based systems that use cups such as Freebsd, Linux, Solaris, etc.
Problem is on part of Customer Service rather than product

Summary: This is a nice little piece of equipment, with easy to follow set up instructions. The problem seems to lie with Linksys customer service reps(csr), more than the product itself. In an attempt to print on a printer located in another area of my home, csr told me that it was not a matter of configuring my router or access point, but that a print server was needed - so I purchased the one she suggested. I tried to configure it, but had difficulty.
Summary: I installed on a three computer wireless network using the quick install. All computers print on demand. I use a linksys wireless router, two linksys wireless cards and a third with internal wireless(Compaq laptop).
Great product, although setup can be a little confusing

Summary: After a few set up difficulties, this product has performed reliably. A word of caution: When you install the driver and add a new printer, make sure you select "local printer attached to this computer." Do NOT select "network printer." Another word of advice: If you choose to set the printserver up wirelessly, make sure that your network is set to the factory default (SSID linksys, no WEP encryption, channel 6) or you will waste hours of time on the setup.
Summary: Just gave up trying to configure the WPS11 after over an hour with Linksys tech support. The product sounds excellent and the set up instructions imply its almost plug and play. This was to be the final piece of my Linksys set up. I already have the wireless router, the USB adapter for a remote PC, and an ethernet bridge for my son's PS2.
Summary: It doesn't matter how well a device is designed if someone other than the designer tries to write the user manual. It seems to me that in order to save money, Linksys had someone in India write a manual that's supposed to be written in English. They could have saved even more money by not including a manual at all and telling you to figure it out on your own.
Summary: Normally, I love Lynksys products, but after trying to install this myself and it not working on either of my computers I broke down and called techincal support. After 3 hours with them, and three different tech people I was told (even though it could find my printer on the server, it still wouldn't print anything) that the print server was incompatible with my hp printer. I was told i'd have to buy a new printer.
