    so far so good

    Pros: Small, low power, inexpensive.

    Cons: None so far.

    I replaced an older print server that was in need of frequent rebooting. I hope this one does better.
    I use it for an HP laserjet that isn't supported by Windows 7, and I wanted to avoid all the driver hassles of the past.
    Building on the good references from darknight65 and seaston, here's what worked for me, quickly and easily.
    1. Hook the server to the network. Unlike seaston, I couldn't connect to it using IP address printed on it. It aquired a DHCP dynamic address. I used FING to find the address by looking for the MAC address in the discovered devices.
    2.. Log into the server, set a password (seemed necessary to allow changing to a fixed IP address), disable DHCP, set the desired fixed IP address, save. I used a different IP address from the former server in case I have to regress.
    3. From control panel / hardware / printers, right click on the printer. Select 'printer properties'. Open the Ports tab, select the port that was used for the older server, configure, edit the "printer name or IP address" to match the port you want to use. I was unable to change the name of the port, which had been the old port number, but I could change the port. Since it was the same old printer, that's all I had to change.
    4. Print a test page, and hope for the best.

    Pros: Easy to install on existing wireless network

    Cons: Some difficulty with 7.0 Printer would initialize but not print.

    Works really will so far. Follow instructions by reviewer seaston from Watertown, NY for configuring it on my Windows 7 PM. Configured perfectly on 8.1 laptop.

    AMAZING - First one died after a year or so however

    UBUNTU! Here's how I got a printer to work in Ubuntu with a Brother HL 2140.

    Add a printer, but under Device URI, you need to add the queue to the end of the string for LPR or else it won't work.

    Like this:

    Ubuntu default is this:

    Use the Brother HL-2140 Foomatic/hpijs-pcl5e driver and you're golden. Takes a lot of patients however.

    If you get a bunch of white pages, then you're on the right track and don't change the URI! Getting the connection string right is a PITA.

    5343 Print Server

    • David,

    Using the Network Printer Wizard supplied with the server produced very long wait times.
    I setup the server manually and it works fine.

    Printer server works great but disconnect daily

    • tsandco,

    Pros: Works great, when it works. would have given it a 9, gets a 4 because it disconnects daily

    Cons: Disconnects daily

    This unit works great. can print from any pc in my home group.

    not sure why it disconnects daily. I have to disconnect the power and reconnect. The server starts back up and the printing starts immediately.

    Getting tired of having to keep disconnecting and reconnecting

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the disconnection issues experienced with PID 5343. Unfortunately, it does sound like you may have received a defective print server. If you would like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement. We offer a one year warranty for this unit and obtaining a replacement is of no additional cost. If you wanted to proceed with the RMA, please let me know and I can get that started right away. Apologies again with any inconvenience and thank you for the feedback!
