From the Manufacturer

IOGEAR USB 2.0 Print Server, 1-Port GPSU21 (Silver)

IOGEAR's palm sized 1-port USB 2.0 Print Server allows any networked computer to share a USB printer. It complies with USB 2.0 specifications (backward compatible with USB 1.1 spec.), and provides users with an auto-sensing Ethernet port that works with either 10Base-T or 100Base-T networks. This unit also supports multiple protocols and multiple operating systems, and it integrates Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) in this print server to allow users to print from any computer over a LAN/WAN or the Internet by specifying the device's URL.

The built-in web management feature provides more convenience by allowing the user to configure, monitor and even reset the print server via a web browser. This eliminates the need to place the printer right next to the computer. Print jobs can be sent to a printer in another country just as easily as to a printer in the same office. Why bother sending a degraded fax image while you can print an original at the destination?

Device is not compatible with Multi-Functional Printers.

Key Features

  • Easily connect your USB printer to a network
  • Allows multiple computers to share one USB printer on the network
  • Print from any computer on your network or from across the Internet
  • Supports DHCP Client and multiple network protocols
  • 10Base-T / 100Base-T auto-sensing
  • Supports Telnet and Web Management software

How it works

Requirements:

  • Windows® 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7 (32 & 64-bit)
  • Mac OS 9.22 or later
  • Unix/Linux
  • Printer with USB connection

Time to return this piece of junk.
Erin Haugen
I could ping it, I could log into the configuration page, but whenever I tried to print, the print queue would say "Printing" but nothing would ever print.
Melmo
After that I closely followed the directions that came with it to get the print driver installed.

6/7/2012 UPDATE: I have looked on their site and there is a newer list than the first one I posted. Although the PDF does not state the date modified, the index list says it was modified in Feb 2012. Here's the link to the newer PDF:[...]

Here's the link to the index list of so that you can see if the list for the model has changed (be sure to find the correct model):

[...]

ORIGINAL POST: March 5,2009
I made the mistake of taking the product description at face value. It does not work with all printers, so check the compatibility list from Iogear's website first! [...]

You may notice that the list has not been updated since 2007... so that tells you something. I have a HP Deskjet D4160 which a bought a few years ago (probably right after this list was created!)

I was able to install the print server without any complication. I could ping it, I could log into the configuration page, but whenever I tried to print, the print queue would say "Printing" but nothing would ever print. After trying the IPP method and using a static IP, still no joy. Come to find out the compatibility list does not include any of the Deskjet D series and is two years old. Cutting my losses and not wasting another minute on it, I packed it up and sent it back to Amazon. My guess is that if I had a compatible printer it would work..but I'm not about to buy another printer in order to test that theory.

The print server hardware worked fine, but the setup software
caused a few problems as a result of oversimplication.

I was able to get the server going with a Brother HL-5150D USB
printer on a home network with 4 computers (3 wireless, 1
ethernet), an all-in-one networked device and the USB
printer itself. This is using a mixture of computers with
different flavours of Windows XP. The print server is wired to
a router using DHCP. I did not chose to put the print server on
a static address (as the manual prefers) since that does not
reflect my network setup (home networks are usually DHCP).

I encountered problems because:

(a) My software firewall first caused the installer to crash.
I wanted to avoid turning it off entirely, but
to no avail. I was able to leave my router's hardware
firewall on but had to turn off my software firewall
for the installation. The manual asks that firewall
be turned off at installation, but I find that drastic.
I guess I should have cut off my internet connection when
I did this.

(b) I installed my printer drivers and print server back-to-back
without rebooting the computer in between. The manual
allows for this but I was not able to avoid the "the
segment of the print server is different from your
computer" error no matter what I tried. So I rebooted
and started the print server install a second time over.
Worked fine. The manual's guidance for this error was
incorrect in my case.

So, if what I've learned applies:
(i) install the printer driver as a normal USB
printer on your computers first.

I bought this to connect my Canon MP760 to my two notebook computers, one running XP and the other Vista. After connecting the device to my printer and my router, I started the install CD on my XP notebook and ran the wizard, accepting all the standard options. The software finished and reported a success, but I couldn't print anything. Then I noticed (after being clued in by reading someone else's review) that the printer needs to be set to Online in the printers control panel. After doing this my XP notebook could print.

However it wasn't so easy on the Vista notebook. Although the CD software seemed to run fine (after giving it permission), no amount of tweaking got anything to print. Items would sit in the print queue forever, and zero bytes would by shown sent to the printer. It should be noted that IOGear nowhere says this software is compatible with Vista, I can confirm it is not, and I couldn't find any Vista driver on the IOGear website.

Now the good news. I discovered there is a much simpler way to install this device. Just use the instructions for IPP that are given at the back of the manual. These instructions are given for setting up to print over the internet, but the same technique can be used to set up on a local home network. With a home network it all boils down to: tell Windows you are installing a network printer and type in the URL as [...] (your IP address will be different) then select the print driver and you are done. What it so hard about that? Nothing. And this method DOES work for both Windows XP and Windows Vista.

So it took me about 2 hours of trial and error, but now it works great. The device can be managed and configured using a web browser, just by typing in its IP address.

The device is very useful if you want to convert a printer to a networked printer spending under $40. The software worked in my case, but I was trying to find a way of installing it without the software, so as to simplify things for other persons on the network. Here is how I did it, for a Brother MFC-8440, after many trials. You need first to find out the network address of the print server, and if needed, to enter the print server setup using your internet browser and set a fixed IP for the device (I set it to 192.168.3.90, since my router distributes ports from 100 onwards).

PROCEDURE FOR PC-WINDOWS SYSTEMS
1. [Disable your firewall... I didn't really to do this on my system, but if the procedure doesn't work, try disabling it and going through the procedure again].
2. Click on Start button in bottom left corner of the screen
3. Select "devices and printers" from the column on the right side of the Start menu.
4. From the window that appears, on the top menu, choose "Add a printer"
5. Choose "Add a Network, wireless or Bluetooth printer"
6. From the bottom, choose "The printer that I want isn't listed"
7. Choose: "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname", and click NEXT
8. Change the Device type to "TCP/IP" from the drop-down list.
9. Insert next to "Hostname or IP address" the following, excluding the inverted commas: "192.168.3.90". Make sure you type it correctly; in fact, it is easier to cut it and paste it from here to the window. There are only numbers and dots.
10. Press NEXT.
11. Make sure that the Device Type is "Standard" and "Generic Network Card", and press NEXT
12. Look up Brother MFC-8440 USB (substitute for you printer) from the list (choose Brother on the left, then the model on the right...).
