5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly!

Pros: Easy to configure for both Mac and PC. Worked Works with Rendezvous, so Macs automagically see it.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Like many others, I did not use the included CD. The first time you log in, use the user name "root" and leave the password field blank.. You can either configure it as a static IP or with DHCP. Aside from giving it a name, there's not much more that you need to do.

Adding a printer on a Mac was really easy. You just go to Control Panel, Print & Fax, and it shows up as a Bonjour printer. Select the printer, name it, and select the printer drivers under the "Print Using" tab. You'll have to install the printer drivers ahead of time, if they don't show up here. That's it!

On Windows 7, you add it as a network printer. It's not quite as straightforward, but pretty simple. You'll have to enter the printer name or IP address as it wasn't able to find it on my network. That's probably the only negative I found, but it might be just my configuration.

Relative to my old print server, this was extremely easy to set up and to add printers to both Mac and PC. For those who have limited experience with setting up networks, this might be a bit harder, but it's about as simple as they can make it. Maybe the CD helps out in this regard?

5 out of 5 eggsPrinter Server Rox

Pros: Works with HP LaserJet 3050. If ur new to routing, just follow posting on 7-10-2010 at 2:39:30 PM. Just find the router on your network. Since I use DD-WRT on my router (linksys blue box WRT-54G), it showed up in the router software as Plugged that IP address on my web brower (Google Chrome) and I knew it was running. Follow the 7-29-2012 posting to get to run as a printer. It rox!
Running Win 7 64 bit. Login is root/

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat print server!

Pros: Great device. Some networking skill may things easier for the average user.

Cons: web interface "test print" did not produce a test print

Other Thoughts: Setup using IPP with a ZEBRA 500 to print shipping labels from overseas, works perfect. Windows users remember to install "Internet Printing Client" for IPP (not available on Windows Starter edition), then forward por 631 after setting a static IP on the device.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great! Easy setup (if you ignore the instructions)

Pros: USB 2.0 interface, small! I set it up in under 60 seconds.

This will work most standard usb printers and any OS made within the last decade.

I'm using it with a Samsung ML-1740 laser.

Cons: Doesn't make me breakfast.

Other Thoughts: Like those who came before me and gave it a good review, know what your doing BEFORE you start.


I used the instructions provided in the previous review and it seriously took less than 60 seconds to set up. Easy.

4 out of 5 eggsIts been up for a few years

Pros: It's simple. It has a web interface and it works.

Cons: It's best if you just skip the CD.

Other Thoughts: Check your router to see what address was assigned to the PS.
Type in the ip address in your browser.
Log in to it with the user name "root" and no password.
Give it a name. Assign it an IP address or leave it DHCP.
Be sure to name it the same WORK GROUP.
Add your printer as a LOCAL connection.
Create an IP port with the IP address you log in with and assign that port to the printer.
Test print.
I have it working with Windows 7 64 bit, Windows Vista 32 bit and XP.
I have used it with a Brother laser printer and an HP laser printer. No issues over the years.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems here

Pros: Works right out of the box. I don't even know if any software came with it because I never bothered to look. It was easy to set up the first time and I just changed routers and went from a 192.168 to a 10.0 and it was still easy to set up.

Read the comments here. Be sure to log into the device with the username 'root' and do the config.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Disregard the negative reviews. One does need to know something about networks or at least know how to use the internet to look up something about networks.
