Description

IOGEAR's palm sized 1-port USB 2.0 Print Server allows any networked computer to share an USB printer. It complies with USB 2.0 specifications (backward compatible with USB 1.1 spec.), and provides users with an auto-sensing Ethernet port that works with either 10Base-T or 100Base-T networks. This unit also supports multiple protocols and multiple operating systems, and it integrates Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) in this print server to allow users to print from any computer over a LAN/WAN or the Internet by specifying the device URL. The built-in web management feature provides more convenience by allowing the user to configure, monitor and even reset the print server via a web browser. This eliminates the need to place the printer right next to the computer. Print jobs can be sent to a printer in another country just as easily as to a printer in the same office. Why bother sending a degraded fax image while you can print an original at the destination?

    This problem magically resolved itself the next day, still not sure what I did to fix it. Sometimes the printer will randomly spit out a printer test page. Even when no computer on the network is turned on. This did not happen when it was connected to a computer.

    Pros: Worked perfectly with Win 7 64-bit. I purchased two these units a few years ago to work with Win XP. They were taken out of service because of some changes I made to my printers.
    Yesterday I went to the IOGEAR web site and found they had drivers for Win 7 64-bit. I downloaded the drivers and set up a new printer on my home network.
    IOGEAR should be congratulated for keeping their products up to date with Win 7 drivers!
    I just wanted to provide this information for people considering this print server for Windows 7. It works perfectly as it did years ago on Win XP.
    Cons: None that I could find.

    Pros: Compact.
    Cons: May not work with all printers. It should work fine with most laser printers, inkjet will be hit or miss see manufacturer's support website.
    Documentation for setting up the port via TCP/IP was a little off and I have XP thru Win 7 so the interface is a little different. But I got all of them set up.
    I'd also recommend a static IP address.

    Pros: Installed easily. Hooked up my older Canon i860 printer without an issue. Was able to connect using the IPP w/o using IOGear's CD (Need to know the IP address though ). Small.
    Cons: None that weren't expected - can't get ink tank status from my printer. Couldn't with my now dead LinkSys PSUS4 either.
    Wish all connectors were on back and lights were on the "front".
    Manual does not explain what the different lights mean. Not a problem when things are working, but ...
    Manual does not tell you that there is a web interface or how to use it, but there is.
    Still giving it 5 stars because it has done what I needed it to, just like is says.

    Pros: It works great. I replaced a computer in my bedroom that was running as a print server and a file server and it did the trick.
    Cons: It installed fine with the software and printed from my kids laptop that runs XP Pro. I could even uninstall the software and manage the print server via a web browser, however, the wrench in the wheel happened when I tried to do the install on my Vista Business laptop. After 3 hours of trial and error I realized that on the print server internal webpage the XP machine was printing LPR protocol and the Vista macine was printing rawtcp. After switching to LPR it printed farther but still hung in the printer and then I found LPR Byte Counting Enabled. This takes over the generic Windows 0 or 700 print size garbage and send the exact print size to the print server. Therfore, it works like it's supposed to. Bottom line, the print server works fine and Windows was the cause of the problem. I'm happy now, after 3 hours.

    Easy setup, hassle free... Unlike a router you can't just log onto the server via an internet browser... Not really a con because the software for setting up the print server works just fine... Make sure you set your router to static ip addresses other wise you risk having to setup the print server again as it's ip address might change upon router reboot.

    Pros: Small.
    Cons: Worked at first. Then it didn't. Then it did. Then it didn't. Printing is slow to start (when it works). When its not working, the files show up in the print queue, but nothing happens. There is no error message.
    Small. Worked at first. Then it didn't. Then it did. Then it didn't. Printing is slow to start (when it works). When its not working, the files show up in the print queue, but nothing happens. There is no error message. Using a mix of Windows XP and Windows 7 hardware, and a Samsung ML-1710 laser printer. The problem appears to be poor drivers for the print server.
    September 5, 2010 Justin says:
    Pros: Bought this to replace an Airport Express that was on the fritz. Once you set it up it is a solid little print server.
    Cons: Does not work with apple Bonjour! If you want to print from a Mac you will need to setup an LPD connection to the unit and install the driver for whatever printer you have hooked up onto each computer that will be printing to this device.

If you want to print from a Mac you will need to setup an LPD connection to the unit and install the driver for whatever printer you have hooked up onto each computer that will be printing to this device. I expected a bit more from this print server in terms of features but it gets the job done none-the-less. Maybe I was just spoiled by the Airport Express.
    August 30, 2010 Doug says:
    I had it setup and running in five minutes. The installation program automatically detected the server so all I had to do is assign it an IP address. I've only had it connected for two weeks so I can not attest to its reliability yet; though it appears well made. The only con that I have is that it is slow to start printing (though this may be caused by my home network instead of the print server.) When my printer is connected directly to the PC via a USB port the printer starts printing within 3 or 4 seconds. When printing through the print server it takes over 10 seconds.

    This was the least expensive, print server I could find. It works well. I was able to get it set up pretty quickly after figuring out that Zone-alarm was blocking the ports. It took a bit longer to get our Mac laptop connected, but our XP system works fine with it. We have had it about a year, but just recently it is taking longer to get my Win7 laptop working with it, but I have only tried twice. Hopefully it will work.

    Easy to setup, instructions worked fine. AC adapter is fat at the base. I prefer hardware that's more robust and 'no frills', 'business-like' rather than goofy designs. This print server definitely looks goofy.
    10-min to setup, could be confusing for a rookie though.
    August 3, 2010 Thomas says:
    Pros: I just hooked this up to my network, and it works exactly how you'd expect. I didn't have to install any software, as it can be configured over IP (the default IP is 192.168.1.202). The product I received has DHCP support, so all I had to do was look at my router's DHCP table to determine its IP address. I didn't even have to read the manual! I plugged it into the same switch that is connected to my WiFi router, so I can print wirelessly. The printer I am using is a Brother HL-2140.
    Cons: The web interface is a little ugly, but it doesn't really matter. It does the job.

    We have three computers in the house: my wired desktop, my wife's wireless desktop and a netbook. My computer had to be ON to print. Is your computer on? was a common question from the wife. No more. I must admit that you must be a little geeky to get it setup. The best advice I have is to delete your shared printer and then find the print server and re-install the printer as a network printer. It helps if you know the ISP number of the device by looking at your router info.

    Easy to setup and add to the network. Easy to configure desktops and laptops to use the Print Server. Able to access the print server via the printserver IP address. None Likely this is a configuration issue on my part - When printing the printer status window on the printing computer shows the printer is offline but document does get printed. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix I'd like to know.

    Works as described, took care of my issue of having a new laptop but the printer was shared trough a desktop that I'm shutting down, now the rest of the family can keep printing even if my laptop is not connected. The printing might be a little slower than with USB, but not an issue. Using it on a Canon Pixma ip4000.

    Pros: Seemed to work fine once I got it set up. Printed test pages from Windows 7, Windows XP, and Linux (Ubuntu 9.10). Gets the job done.
    Cons: It's hard to set up. It defaults to 192.168.1.174, which may or may not be on your network. If you just want to set up IPP and don't have a Windows box / Mac, just point your configuration over there and see if you can set it up via something like telnet (that port is open; I didn't try it yet or anything).

    Perfect to print from MS Windows No user guide available. Installation guide extremely basic. Hotline saturated. Difficult to configure for Mac OS 10.6, and when configured it is extremely slow. After groping around the print server parameters, I found a configuration where printing from my Macbook is possible. But it takes 2 minutes for the printer to start printing. Apart from that, works great from a Windows computer.

    Pros: Nice small and compact print server...Does what it's supposed to. BUT it wasn't the answer to my problem. I have two Ubuntu desktop machines (one is 64bit); one older XP Pro machine and a VISTA 64bit laptop. I was looking to for a way to network all them for my one printer/scanner. It was either this or make my XP machine "the print server" and have it run all the time just for that reason. The Ubuntu machines worked fine out of the box. VISTA had some problems.
    Cons: I had a HUGE configuration problems with VISTA with this thing, still never got to quite work correctly. Even worse when connected wirelessly, IOgear software would never recognize wireless connection to printer on the Vista machine (scratches head), but would see it 'wired'...More likely the Vista 'IP scaling map' than this servers fault, but still I end up with the same result. Ironically, Ubuntu gave me no issues connecting, but afterward the windows machines couldn't connect....It was an either or situation. It would either see CUPS (linux) or LDP (windows) but not both on the same network.

    Pros: Small, easy to set-up, works as standard generic TCPIP
    port (raw 9100). You can set it up manually using
    a web browser going to the DHCP assigned IP address
    and clicking on configure. Great product for the price,comes with a network cable. You can even see it recognize the attached USB printer by name from a web browser.
    Cons: doesn't tell you you can set it up manually without using the CD. The tiny manual shows screen shots of the software CD which is extremely small to read.
    would give it 5 stars if they even mentioned you don't need to load the cd if you know what you are doing.

There are no directions in the manual on how to set up for vista. there is no support page for this thing on the manufacturers website either. To set up for vista, First find the ip address of the thing. You can do that by using the utility that came with the disk and running the wizard to set up the ip. Once you know the ip go into control panel/printer and set up a new network printer. After that it's pretty much self explanatory.
    After you find the ip i would recommend just using the web based setup page to change any setting on the server; the wizard on the disk is pretty much useless.

    It works with a konica minolta magicolor 2400w laser printer without and issues. Getting it to work was another story. I almost sent it back. If the printer was already working on your pc before it's a lot easier but if you can't get it working heres what you do: install the drivers for your printer on your pc first (unless windows already has a driver for it), then go to add printer, add network printer, and then type http://192.168.1.123/lp1 (your ip address will most likely be different) and then pick the type/model of your printer and you should be good to go. You may want to use the included software to give your printer a static ip to make things easier. hope this helps.

    For those who only need to hook up one USB printer to a home network, this unit is a good option. The one thing that would have given this unit a 5 for performance is for it to provide two-way communication with an all-in-one printer. The price is good and it was relatively easy to set up.

    Pros: Works great and was easy to install and set up...and it's cheap.
    Cons: I had bought this to network a multifunction printer but this only works on single function printers.

    IOGear's tech support was helpful in explaining to me that it wouldln't work with a multifunction, and then helped me set up my laser printer on my network. This thing works great now that I'm using the right printer.

    Pros: Makes a printer network capable. Supports a wide range of protocols. Supports a wide range of printers. Fast hookup. Easy setup.
    Cons: Bi-directional communication is not supported. As such you cannot get ink status information. This might be normal for most print server units however. The CD did not work for me on Vista.

As such you cannot get ink status information. This might be normal for most print server units however. The CD did not work for me on Vista. I got this to make my Canon iP4300 Photo Printer network capable. I also got it since the website said it was Vista compatible. Unfortunately I wasn't able to use the CD. Then I figured out that I didn't need to once it had gotten past the actual device setup. It got stuck at selecting the printer that was connected and as such it never finished but it did its job and set an ip on the device. After that I just cancelled out and set a network printer on Vista and selected the correct driver. It will work regardless if the port protocol is set to RAW or LPR (LPD on mac). If you do LPR/LPD then set the queue to lp1. Also I found that in addition to the web-based interface it also supports a telnet interface which is an undocumented feature. All of the same functions are available via telnet that is available via the

    Pros: Setup, used a "fixed" ip, and then ran the setup disk on client computers running windows 2000 & windows XP, works great so far, fast.
    Cons: None yet.

    Pros: This neat little biscuit sized Server is a great solution for multiple PCs networked at home. We are using it on both Windows and Linux PCs. Setup on Linux was a piece of cake and worked straight away. Setup on Windows was also easy and only complicated by the Firewall software. After some on line searching found that the Spooler Subsystem requires server access in the trusted network.You will most likely need the software loaded on Windows (we did) to allow the Print Server to be discovered.
    Cons: We wish that it was designed with all cables on the rear.

We wish that it was designed with all cables on the rear. We should have purchased this a long time ago. Hint: You can access the print server menu by keying the assigned ip address into your browser. It will be helpful to review the support pages at iogear before starting to install. Hope this feedback is useful to others.

    Pros: Easy install. Worked Great.
    Cons: If you have a printer status monitor that comes up when you print, it will no longer work because the print server does not support bidirectional printing. Disable it if you can, because you will no longer be able to use it.
    Easy install. Worked Great. If you have a printer status monitor that comes up when you print, it will no longer work because the print server does not support bidirectional printing. Disable it if you can, because you will no longer be able to use it. Be sure to run the driver installation CD on all computers in your network
