Works great

 

Bought to use with a Samsung ML-2010 printer. Works just great. I've never had a problem with it going offline or not working. Automatically detected with Apple computers.

None.

Works flawlessly!

 

Like many others, I did not use the included CD. The first time you log in, use the user name "root" and leave the password field blank.. You can either configure it as a static IP or with DHCP. Aside from giving it a name, there's not much more that...

Easy to configure for both Mac and PC. Worked Works with Rendezvous, so Macs automagically see it.

None yet.

Printer Server Rox

 

Works with HP LaserJet 3050. If ur new to routing, just follow posting on 7-10-2010 at 2:39:30 PM. Just find the router on your network. Since I use DD-WRT on my router (linksys blue box WRT-54G), it showed up in the router software as 192.168.1.114....

Well it works with my old HP Deskjet 932C printer, the printer works great because of the large print cartages

BUFFALO LPV3-U2

 

Works as described

Clunky interface, had to change settings several times to make it work, need fair amount of networking knowledge to set it up.

Great print server!

 

Setup using IPP with a ZEBRA 500 to print shipping labels from overseas, works perfect. Windows users remember to install "Internet Printing Client" for IPP (not available on Windows Starter edition), then forward por 631 after setting a static IP on...

Great device. Some networking skill may things easier for the average user.

web interface "test print" did not produce a test print

Works great! Easy setup (if you ignore the instructions)

 

Like those who came before me and gave it a good review, know what your doing BEFORE you start. DO NOT USE THE ENCLOSED SETUP CD!! IT WILL ONLY MAKE YOU CRY!! I used the instructions provided in the previous review and it seriously took less than 60...

USB 2.0 interface, small! I set it up in under 60 seconds. This will work most standard usb printers and any OS made within the last decade. I'm using it with a Samsung ML-1740 laser.

Doesn't make me breakfast.
