    I have a simple single function low cost printer. I don’t need an All-in-one function printer and I don’t need to print from a smart phone or tablet.
    I use a Dell laptop running Windows 7 with WIFI via a N300 Netgear WIFI router. I also have a single function HP Deskjet 1000 printer without any WIFI. I don’t print much but I wanted a way to print without physically attaching my printer to my laptop. This product solved that problem. Basically you plug the print server into your router and plug your printer into the print server usb port. When you load the software on the laptop you are installing a second HP driver for your printer. Your original HP Deskjet driver remains and is an option if you decide want to go back to printing through your local usb port on your laptop. The new driver formats the print job to be sent over the network either via the laptop ethernet interface or via WIFI. It works very well. All I need to do is turn my printer on and I can print from my laptop while working in another room. The only complaint is that the StarTech Quick Start guide Software Installation instructions are a bit lacking (at least for Windows 7). Connect your laptop to your router. The basic install goes as follows:

    1. Insert the CD. AutoPlay opens and shows a “Run Setup.exe” option (not Networking Printer Wizard).
    2. You click the Setup option and it runs a StarTech “Networking Printer Wizard” that puts a “Launch Network Printer Wizard” icon (shortcut) on your desktop.
    3. You click on that Launch … icon and it opens the Windows “Network Printer Wizard”. In that window you’ll see your shared network printer listed. In my case it was HP Deskjet 1000 J110 series-P05d065f6a. That is the new print driver you are installing. Highlight it and complete the steps.
    4. When you print, your HP dialog box will show printer selection options (both the original and network printer). You’ll have to select the network printer each time or you can make it your default printer. Go to Ctl Panel–>Hardware&Sound–>View devices&printers: Right clk the network printer and select Default.

    StarTech.com should be able to tell you if your particular printer is supported.

    Unfortunately this product was useless to me. The Amazon product description makes no mention of the fact that the server is only compatible with certain printers, and the one I wanted to use the server with was not supported. Granted, the printer I wanted to use this with was weird (A Dymo label printer) but I wish the listing would contain a link to a compatibility list so the customer could be sure they could actually use it.

    This print server was purchased to connect to an HP Laserjet 6MP and to a Linksys wireless router. Powered the server up, connected via a laptop’s ethernet port, changed the default address to work on the local network, applied the changes, and rebooted. (The print server web interface is clean and easy to use.) Attached the server directly to the printer and an ethernet cable connected it to the Linksys. Two Linux/Unbuntu systems had no problem finding the now wireless printer server, identifying the printer, installing the print driver, and printing.

    A roubust print server. Thank you StarTech.
