As the cost of printers have come down dramatically, many home and SOHO users have sought to add printers to their networks. Also, many of these printers now have a USB interface through which to connect to a network. If a cluster of 3 or more PCs seeks to be attached to a single printer, the NETGEAR PS121 USB Print Server can allow them to access that printer quickly and easily. The PS121 is compatible with wired or wireless routers from any vendor, and can enable a user to have a wired printing network within their broader wireless network. Configuration is simple via the Smart Wizard install assistant, providing a much more seamless user experience than other print servers. Sleek, compact, and easy to use, the PS121 USB Mini Print Server is the perfect solution to add printing to your home or office network.
