This review is from: IOGEAR GPSU21 1-Port Print Server RJ45 USB 2.0
Pros: Works fine
Other Thoughts: I've had success setting up friends with these IOGear print servers in the past, so I thought I'd try it. Working well so far. Read on if you intend to install this without the CD it comes with:
I'm loathe to use the configuration CDs that come with anything I can manually configure, so I didn't use the utility. Following a previous reviewer's advice, I was able to get to the router like this:
- Turn it on, plug it into the router, wait a minute for it to take an address from DHCP.
- http into the router's DHCP table and find it. It was the only one in my list without any name.
- http into that ip address, set a password and change it to a static IP (somewhere out of the range that is used for DHCP).
*** NOTE *** Norton Antivirus gave me a hard time finding it. The print server's admin page wouldn't load in my browser. I struggled trying to find some place to exclude that IP address in Norton (never did find one for IPs), then finally I disabled Norton and got right in. And, when I re-enabled Norton, I was still able to get to the printer server's admin page even without an exclusion so go figure.
After that I plugged the printer into it and fumbled through Window's Add Printer wizard (my fault). I went the wrong route there a couple times but got it working by typing the IP address in with slashes before and a slash after or something. I think I might have ended up adding it as a local printer but added the ip address of the print server as a new port during that process. I tried a couple things so I honestly can't remember now. It's working great.
Wondering why it says TP-Link on the admin page?
