First I'll start off by writing a brief review, then the details to follow. The print server works wonderfully once it's setup. The software included for Windows is a joke and only hinders the process.

Now for my full review and instructions to make this work the way you want it...

I bought a router with a built in print server. We have two mac computers and three windows computers on our small office network. We all needed to print, and we were all sending pdf's to one computer to do so. So we tried the Belkin 600+ router which was a joke. You had to check out the printer in order to use it. And once you could finally get permission, it would only print half of the time. So we returned it and bought this print server.

I hooked it up, it recognized our HP Printer/Fax machine immediately, and I set it up according to the instructions on the Mac. Easy as pie. It uses bonjour to discover it and there was almost no installation time required. Also, even if the IP address changes for the printer, it still connects because it uses bonjour and not just an IP address.

Then I went to a Windows XP machine. I installed the software, which there are two installs to make it work, restarted the computer, then was presented with the printer software upon startup. With this software, you have to "Connect" every time you want to use the printer. The reason for my quotes is because this simulates a USB hookup. This means that you have to request permission every time you want to use it on the Windows end, just like the Belkin router. This wasn't good enough for me (and my Windows XP machine would NOT connect) so I went another route, which I'll detail below.

To make this print server work the way it SHOULD work, follow the below steps.

I ordered this product on 10/12/2011. The estimated shipping date was 10/13/2011 and estimated delivery date was 10/18/2011. The product was delivered on 10/14/2011 via USPS.

The product works good except that it is not as advertised. i.e. The software included with the product is useless. After spending approximately 5 hours with the software, I uninstalled the software and configured the printserver like a network printer. I would have returned the product without DoocesWild's review. SO FUTURE BUYERS, PLEASE READ DoocesWild's REVIEW BEFORE INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE. The setup is explained in detail by DoocesWild. The hardware works (print jobs) satisfactorily from WindowsXP and Windows7 PCs.

So don't bother with the included Software CD. It is not worth it. One thing I did differently in Windows 7 is to enter "LPT1" as Queue Name and check "LPR Byte Counting Enabled" check box in the Standard TCP/IP Port settings. The last 5 days the printserver is working. No complaints. I will buy another one soon.

Everything seems to work but no prints. I can print via a direct USB connection and I can even find the printer driver on the network and load the print driver. Everything seems to work but the last little step of actually getting a print. I expect I'll figure it out someday but after following all the instructions and going through the Windows Add a Printer seems like it should work. Also my printer is listed on the Windows Compatibility web site as Windows 7 compatible as well as in the product literature as compatible. This is rediculous.

Update - after 3 weeks, a semi-useless attempt at technical support from the mfg, I finally got it to work. Turns out there are two whizards but only one installs from the Setup. The other is a USB driver. You need the USB to find the print driver and then open the printer setup whizard to actually install the printer. However, that got me to a deadend where I needed a driver that was on my Window 7 machine but not yet installed - go figure. To get that updated I went back to the install a new printer and worked it through until I was able to update my Windows printer driver list. Then I went back to the Printer Install Whizard and was able to find the driver I needed and finish. Now it work great but I still can't believe that any company would expect a normal customer to slog through tecno-geek hell. Good luck.

After wrestling with several router USB port offerings, I decided to go with this little guy (and it really is little). I read through the reviews and followed the directions so thoughtfully posted by DoocesWild and had the server running in no time. I believe that it took me longer to open the box than to set it up and send my first successful print.

I will be testing this device to access a WD Mybook through my router since this is really designed to share just about any USB device. If it works then I am going to buy another one.

I'm not sure who makes this little gadget but they did a good job. The packaging and build quality are better than what I had expected. If they were to use the DoocesWild post for their quick start guide then I'm sure that fewer would be returned.

This USB network server worked, I could print but could not communicate correctly with my Cannon ix6500 printer. So I have tried the TP-Link AC TL-PS310U Single USB 2.0 and it is awesome. If you want a print server that will automatically connect to your router every time you print and give you direct connection through your router (just as if you plugged the usb into your computer) My wife and I now share printing on the network perfectly! I can see the ink levels, adjust the print, paper size and much more and as a plus, I can add most any usb device using a hub and connect to it with the TP-Link AC TL-PS310u adapter.
