It took less than 15 minutes to get it up and running. Very easy set-up. I have Brother MFC 7340 printer (which was not in the compatibility list!!) and its scanning and printing nice and fast. Two PCs (a desktop and a laptop) are connected wirelessly to the router, and the print server is wired to the router. Everything is working fine. Both PCs are running windows vista.

I had to install the printer software to each pc separately. Then I installed the print server and things were good to go!!!

Highly recommended!!! Cheap!!! easy to install!!!

UPDATE:

I initially wrote a glowing review of this print server and gave it five stars, but now, I took everything back and rate it one star. The thing simply could not maintain a connection. There are six computers on our network sharing a printer through this print server. All of them run Windows 7, and all of them have the same problem. The printer would frequently go "off-line", or into some other disconnected status and became unaccessible. Sometimes running the PS-Link program to make a manual connection would solve the problem, and sometimes the only solution is to unplug the power and restart the print server.

Actually, I did notice the unreliability in the beginning when I used dynamic IP address for this print server, but I thought the problem was fixed by switching to manual IP address. It was not. It was just better, but still extremely unreliable.

No, you can't live with something like this. It would be insane.

I subsequently bought a TRENDnet TE100-P21. So far, it is maintaining a connection with every computer on the network. I shall observe it longer and see what happens. The setup was even simpler. Besides, the TRENDnet has two USB ports plus a parallel port, in contrast to a single USB port of the Airlink.

Anyway, the following is the original review I wrote. Everything I wrote is still true (because I wasn't aware of any unreliability at the time), and may still be useful information for someone who is interested in investing. I was glad to get rid of it.

THE ORIGINAL REVIEW:

BACKGROUND:

I hesitated to buy it due to lack of user reviews. But glad I bought it. This thing is so much better than my 5 years old D-Link printer server which was four times as expensive.

We have to constantly turn things off and on, re-"link", even reinstall the software, in an effort to make it print. When it does print, it's extremely slow, and occasionally "hangs up" in the middle of a printout.

I'm on the phone right now waiting to talk to their support (10 minutes in the queue so far) but they say on their website it is a discontinued model and not supported. We'll see what they say. There is no updated software on their website.

In a home with MACs and PC's I turned to this to share the multifunction printer. It took a bit of patience and tweaking to get all the units to work, but since then, printing/scanning life is a breeze.

I tried to install the software on three different computers (Windows7, Vista, and a Mac) and the software acted differently on all three. And it didn't work on any of them. This product is pretty rough around the edges. I returned it.

I would like to give 2.5 stars but there is no half-star. :-(
I didn't buy this print server from Amazon but I am using it now since about 2 years.

Positive:
1) You can convert your old printer, without network capability, to a network printer.
2) It is relatively simple to install and configure if you know how to setup manually an IP address.
3) It is relatively cheap compare to other printer servers on the market.

Negative:
1) You have to install the client software on every computer you want to connect to your printer via network.
2) Sometimes it simply stops to work and the software shows that printer is disconnected. If this happens you have to disconnect the power from the printer server wait for a second or two and connect it back to get it back to work. It doesn't happen often but it happens once in a month or so.
3) AND, the worst at last, it doesn't work as "Multi-Functional" properly. I couldn't bring it to work for scanner functionality because the data transfer rate between printer server and the computer is to low and if you try to scan a whole letter size page, it hangs.
