Bluntly: that was a lie. When the xPrintServer couldn't print a test page, I wrote to Lantronix tech support to ask for help and got this reply:
"The 2600n is one of a handful of HP models that requires a proprietary for which HP cannot provide the source, since it was developed by a third party. The 2600n is the only one of that group for which we were able to reverse engineer the appropriate plug-in.
However, in order to gain this support, you will need to update to the latest beta firmware."
I gritted my teeth and installed the beta firmware as instructed. Who cares as long as it works, right? Well, it didn't work. Pages printed at half their regular size and the colors were washed out and almost invisible. I got another suggestion from tech support to switch to a black-and-white-only driver, but that didn't work at all. At that point, I gave up and returned the device to Amazon.
On a positive note, tech support was great. I dealt with people who clearly know their product well and tried hard to help me. I appreciate that! Unfortunately, I wasted a lot of time trying to get the setup going because their website incorrectly said that my printer would work with it.
If it wasn't listed as supported and I bought it without researching first, then I would've given the device 5 stars for build quality, ease of setup, and great tech support. I don't like that I was deliberately mislead into buying something known not to work, though.

Why is this the best? Simple: plug in and it prints, so easy! The simple instructions they provide to print from Mac and Windows computers are so easy even a kid can do it. There is no need to enter complicated IP addresses, etc. (unlike other print servers out there that are so complicated to install). I have looked at 5 other print servers and decided to go with this and am so glad I chose Lantronix xPrintServer. I no longer need to have my computer turned on in order to print. This will save energy on my computer and lengthen the life of my computer. I have an older printer that's USB but not wireless, this print server is a savior!
Very important tip: I had a problem at first printing from my older iPad. If you can't print from your iPad: uninstall all the print apps and shutdown/start-up the tablet. If the iPad still can't see the printers, it could be the app you're trying to print from. Make sure all the apps have their updates applied. I haven't had any problems with iPads, even with the older 2nd generation iPads. I heard that you can even print from 1st generation iPads!
Update: I ended up pairing it with a Belkin WEMO switch and IFTTT to turn it off and on a couple times during the day, and it generally seems to be working most times when I need it. Pretty ridiculous to have to reboot it constantly to keep it working, though.
