This is a great little gadget to allow the conversion of my HP DeskJet 895 CSE to a network printer at home. I did encounter some bumps during the setup and hope my listing of what I did can help you in setting yours up. I have an average background on networking, as I work in the IT industry as a computer programmer. My hardware settings are:
1) Work Laptop with Windows XP
2) Personal Laptop with Windows 7
3) D-Link 802.11g Router
4) HP DeskJet 895 CSE
5) TrendNet TE100-P1P

To setup my network, these are what I had to do:
1) Prior to plugging the network cable to the TE100-P1P, I went to my main router setting, and changed the address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.2; the reason being, the print server has 192.168.0.1 as it's default IP address. By not changing it initially, I was having difficulty reaching the print server and my router.
2) After the router re-started, I plugged the network cable to the print server, and was able to immediately reach the print server by typing in 192.168.0.1; I followed the directions on how to change the print server's IP address (I used 192.168.0.200) and named my print server.
3) Both laptops were now able to ping the new print server address and even the print-server {Open a Command Prompt window, and type "ping 192.168.0.200" or "ping <the_print_server_name_you_used>"}.
4) For the Windows XP laptop, I followed the directions posted in TrendNet's website [...] which has something similar on the installation CD under the "Manual" folder.
a) I opened up the "Printers and Faxes" window, clicked on "Add a printer", and chose "Local printer attached to this computer"...

This item was extremely easy to install and works as advertised. It is a workable alternative to having a built-in network print server. The only unaesthetic aspect is the requirement for an external DC supply ("wall wort").

The print server was shipped promptly by Amazon.

This print server was relatively easy to install and has, so far, operated flawlessly. We use it to print from our wireless laptops to an old but excellent HP laser printer (HP Laserjet 4 Plus....which uses a parallel port interface, not a
USB port interface)

It should be noted that this IS NOT a wireless print server. It must be connected with a RJ45 network cable to the router.

The TRENDnet parallel Print server solved a problem for me. The new Vista machine that we had gotten for my son had no parallel port connector. When he moved out, our network printer did not go with him, so I gave him an older personal laser printer. However, he could not connect it to his computer since he had no parallel port. The TRENDnet print server was easy to set up and now, after connecting it to his wireless router, he can print his school work from his main computer or from his laptop anywhere in his apartment. This unit is easy to set up has operated as a "set it, forget it" part of my son's network.

This print server was simple to install. The low price and network speed were major factors in the purchase but the ease of installation was a major benefit. I also like the fact that it is so small. I didn't have to find a location for the box, it just plugs into the back of the printer. Getting it operational on the network was no problem at all. I would definitely buy it again.

I just installed this print server on my home network. Originally it worked on my Linux and Windows 7 systems. Now it works on neither. It reports the printer is off-line all the time. When it was printing it was very slow. I have updated the firmware to the latest. The only driver available is several years old and will not even install on my Windows 7 machine.

Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) couldn't see the 5MP via AppleTalk, and the HP print servers were discontinued long ago. Read positive reviews of this unit and figured it was worth a shot. Installation using the supplied CD from Windows XP (running in VM Ware Fusion) was a piece of cake, took about 5 minutes. About a minute at each computer in the network switching the default printer to the print server. The native printer drivers on the various Macs in my network (OS 9, 10.4.11, 10.5, and 10.6.2) recognized the 5MP and provided access to all the functionality built into it.

I purchased this to replace an old 3-port Linksys print server. Installation was a breeze, just attach it to the printer's parallel port, plug in your network cable and plug in the power. I then used the built in web interface to configure it, including assigning it a new static IP (make sure to configure your router to not include this IP in its DHCP pool) and I was off and running. Setting up all our home computers (2 laptops and 2 towers - running WinXP and Ubuntu) to connect to the printer was relatively easy.

Though I don't believe you have to assign it a static IP on your network, I would recommend doing so if you can and know how.
