2 out of 5 eggsBoth died after 2 yrs.

Pros: Has ugly but functional web interface and works 1-way for practically any printer. Don't need to use install disk, just give it a static ip address and set your computers to print to that ip address and you're done (assuming you've got your printer driver installed ;-) Has a Linksys 4-port switch!!!

Cons: Gets hot, even if ventilated. Dies after a couple years of use. It has to be powered up after the printer has booted. Having to unplug it and re-plug it back in after a power outage was an infrequent but distasteful annoyance.

Other Thoughts: I've had two of these and both died after 2 years. During that time they worked great, however, and I enjoyed having the 4-port switch - a big plus. I also like having a web interface which made admin easy from any browser on the network. But all those are worthless when it dies. They were too expensive to die in only 2 years.

1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: Allows printing to a non-network ready printer from any pc on your network.

Cons: 1. If you do an IP scan of the subnet (with a ICMP scan tool) and this box was preconfigured with a static IP it will reset to DHCP and you will have to manually set the IP again.
2. The capacitors are of poor quality. They will 'bulge' creating a short which will destroy the power circuit - swapping the PSUs will not help. The device will not light any lights.
3. Printing will randomly fail. You will have to reset power to it on a monthly basis with a daily printing jobs.

Other Thoughts: What a waste of money. We have 4 of 6 units died on us already within 2 years of deployment. Stay away.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't go near Linksys products

Pros: None -- you are luck if it works when you open the box. Cisco has done to Linksys what Novell did to WordPerfect.

Let me be clear. I was a big fan of their early wireless routers, but Cisco bought them, they have turned out junk with inferior out-sourced customer support.

Cons: I have owned two of these units (I bought one as a standby back-up given the unreliability of Linksys since it was acquired by Cisco. The first unit "worked for about a year and then failed. Today I pulled my backup unit out of the sealed box (never registered or used) and "tech support" (and I use the term loosely) in the Philippines refused to provide any assistance with initial installation even though they admitted it had never been registered (which is the only way you could ever get limited tech support in the first place).

The wireless parallel of this unit is even worse. I just threw it in the trash.

Linksys sucks since Cisco acquired them. Avoid them at all costs.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks pretty well

Pros: I have several of these. Easy to setup. Its also a 4 port ethernet switch. It just works!

Cons: It will not work with some printers. Other users have noted that it will not work with the LJ1020. I had the same issue. That said, I've had other problems with the LJ1020 on my network. I've never had issues setting up a business class printer. I do have one workstation where the user hammer it with 20 or 30 print jobs. It will occasionally get stuck & have to be reset.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy another and recommend it to others.
I gave it 4 eggs instead of 5 because of the incompatibility with some printers.

3 out of 5 eggsI had higher hopes...

Pros: When it works, it works pretty well. Has additional USB ports.

Cons: As long as nothing out of the ordinary happens, this will work. But if you do anything like cancel an output after it starts to print, it isn't smart enough to figure out what happened and it hangs. You have to power cycle it before it will start the next request, and sometimes you wind up losing the first part of the next one. Every few days, I hear "Honey, it won't print again...". Ugh.

Other Thoughts: If you can live without the extra USB ports, I recommend the BUFFALO LPV3-U2 instead. If you don't read the manual for the LPV3-U2 closely, it can be a little tricky to set up, but it's worth the effort. I used one to replace my Linksys, and haven't touched it since. Peace, quiet, and printout...what a combination!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Linux Support

Pros: Nice simple web interface much like a router, not bound to a CD for setup, printing passthrough allows great Linux support.

Cons: I'm interested in the mailserver option in the web interface but have yet to find any documentation as to what the heck it does.

Other Thoughts: Howto:
I plugged my dell 1110 laser printer into it and plugged it into my belkin router. I than navigated to my routers web interface and looked at the dhcp client list to find the printerserver's IP. Once in the printserver I gave it a static IP address (always best for servers of any flavor). In Ubuntu I opened the printing app and clicked new, punched in the printserver's IP I gave it, picked the driver and printed a test page. w00t! works like a charm ;)

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: Got an RMA for it

Cons: Didn't work. I think it's not compatible with Windows 7, but I couldn't get it to work on Vista or XP either.

Other Thoughts: Save your money and buy a printer with built in network printing, or hook up your printer to a computer on your network and share it with everyone.

2 out of 5 eggsNot to great

Pros: Set up was easy, and the router came in handy.

Cons: 8 months in the router keeps dropping the usb linked printer, the router still works, but the office has to keep unplugging it to get the USB linked printer to be seen.

Other Thoughts: I would not purchase this again.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install, configure, and use. Small form-factor, switch capability. Can get it working without the included CD.

Cons: I believe its almost mandatory for Cisco to not provide DHCP for this server, as it is confusing many people. That's not Cisco's fault, but it may ease people's troubleshooting process.

Other Thoughts: For each machine that will use this server, the printer's driver will need to be installed first (that's a no-brainer). If you can log into the print server via a browser, your machine should be able to find the device when using the printer wizard.

I also believe its almost mandatory for Cisco to NOT provide DHCP for this server, as it is confusing many people. That being said, this is a PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair) issue. If the server's IP changes, functionality breaks. They will be stumped. So, for all users who experience connectivity issues with this server, check first to see if the IP hasn't switched, if you're using DHCP. Almost everyone who's had issues with this server seems to have one of two issues: 1) Printer compatibility, 2) issues that are more than likely relating to the fact that they're using DHCP instead of a static IP setup. Basic networking experience required (the print server IS a network device, after all).

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to hook up, instructions clear

Cons: Would not work -- multifunction HP printer, Vista, whatever -- never got it going right.

Other Thoughts: Just buy a network printer!
