Mac/Linux Friendly

 

Cannot send audio to your stereo and your locally attached computer speakers at the same time. One or the other option, not both. Once you get streaming to work, you can switch back and forth, though. This limitation appears to be a Windows thing.

ditto prior comment. We purchased printers without the built in jetdirect/server. We are a windows free shop and purchase the netgear ps121 and had horrible results

Great print server

 

This adapter is great. Not the cheapest, but it works well, especially with Linux, and many 3rd party hookups are flaky. This uses HP drivers- I highly recommend it. The price might be lower than some of the other JetDirects, but this is a high quality...

Setup is ONLY on included CD- DON'T LOSE IT ; Drivers are updated online (for Windows), but not all work. I recommend the HP Universal PCL5e driver- it's the most reliable one for windows. You don't need the cd- select network printer, jetdirect,...
