5 out of 5 eggsGood server for the cost

Pros: It worked -- after I figured out what I was doing wrong! Easily configurable... Fair WebUI.

Cons: Some MFP's won't allow scanning. What do you expect from a networked.

Other Thoughts: It's small! Easily mountable on wall etc.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Finally got a print server that works! Had tried several others with poor results. Havethis hooked to parallel and usb printers - no problem.

Cons: Had a few minor problems with original hook up but went back over the set-up and found my mistakes.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst print server EVER

Pros: It didnt blow up and kill me.

Cons: It stops working when it feels like it. When you hook up more than one printer it fails(It is supposed to be able to support 3 printers, 2 usb and 1 parallel port). D-link technical support is very very bad. They wanted me to go through the same trouble shooting garbage with them that I had already done.

Other Thoughts: Their technical support is awful, I spent an hour on the phone with them until I quit and just said I would buy a linksys. The technical support agent said "okay sir, you go do that. Have a good night."

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: D-Link has “finally” released firmware revision 2 for this thing (4/19/2006). It now supports WPA and not just WEP. I don’t understand the bad reviews for this product. Short of the WPA thing it has performed exactly as you would expect. I started out using just the parallel and 1 USB port. I’m now just using both USB ports. It has never had an issue to speak of. I love it and will be purchasing another soon for a friend.

Cons: Slow to release new firmware but as of 4/19/2006 that is no longer an issue anyway.

Other Thoughts: I've always used HP printers so I suppose people could be having issues with other brand printers. ...but then again why would you not buy an HP? =P

2 out of 5 eggsbroke in three months

Pros: it works when it did.

Cons: Broke after three months. Took hours to get a RMA from D-Link, then the substitute has not arrived after more than two weeks of promised shipping date, even though they received my return long time ago.

Other Thoughts: Also, bad documentation, which was the subject of my previous review.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat multi-port server; terrible documentation

Pros: Pros: Multiple printers on one server, reviews make up for manual shortcomings, parallel printer support

Cons: Documentation will not work for multiple printers, no WPA support (couldn’t find a server that did support WPA)

Overall, the manuals weren’t great, but I was able to get the server up and running via wires in about 20 minutes. I had to reconfigure the IP address on the print server to match my gateway. I was accessing the configuration page via a wireless laptop with the server plugged in. When I plugged an Ethernet cable into my laptop, the load time on the server’s configuration pages decreased significantly (which is what slowed me down)! It was much easier to configure with both the server and the laptop wired. Had I done this from the start, configuration would probably take only 10 minutes.

Cons: Multi-function printers. It is possible to get basic print service with a MFC printer, just don’t expect to be able to do any of the other services (scan and stuff). I ran an extra 15’ USB wire to the back of the printer to make it easy to use the rest of the functions when needed. Just unplug the server and plug in the USB cable. If you have the other end of the USB cable plugged into a hub or the computer, this makes it easy.

Port names. This is where the manual lets you down. At the end of the manual, the documentation gives you the idea to add another printer using the exact same procedure used to install the first printer. This is not true. Each printer uses the same port number (such as 192.168.1.10), but each printer needs a different port name. I made the names of the ports make sense with the printer they served. If you don’t have different port names, then the computer doesn’t know which port name to send the jobs to for printing.

Wireless connection. The

Other Thoughts: won’t stay on while plugged in via Ethernet. After configuring any WEP security, save the changes and simply unplug the Ethernet cable. If the WLAN light doesn’t come on in about a minute, then something about the wireless connection isn’t setup correctly. Plug the server back in to the Ethernet and try again. Oh, this server does not support WPA security. I found this out before my purchase, but decided to go with it anyway. I couldn’t find a server that did support WPA and this was the best fit with the best reviews for what I needed.

Check printer compatibility. Go to the D-Link website and check whether or not your printer is compatible. My HP Laserjet was on their list, but my Brother MFC was not. I found one Brother printer on their list, which made me feel comfortable at least giving it a try. The Brother MFC works for basic printing. After setting up an additional port for my HP Laserjet 4P, it worked fine as well.

IP configuration. The manual doesn’t cove

5 out of 5 eggsDP-G321 Print Server - Great So Far

Pros: Wireless and cable capable. So you can get the print server working cabled to the router, and then set-up the wireless.

Easy to set-up. Despite some comments in other reviews about the set-up documentation being wrong, there were a few painful spots but overall it made sense and all worked.

Using both USB and parallel reports with Epson, HP and Brother printers. Two are not listed in the compatibility notes, so I gave it a go and it works fine.

Helpline was available and very helpful. As always it was my stupidity that I caused the problem.

Cons: Dlink can do a better job in its documentation to hand hold average people like myself. Overall, the set-up was quick and easy, but struggled with setting up my encryption but with some great support on the d-link helpline all was sorted.

Other Thoughts: Advise that you set-up one printer first with the print server cabled. Once you have been through the set-up once, it becomes clear how to add additional printers.
