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's 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?
IOGEAR USB 2.0 Print Server GPSU21 - print server is rated2.50 out of5 by2.
Rated 5 out of 5 byRodolpho from Keep it close to your switchI tried to patch this into an Allied Telesis AT-FS724L. I could get a link with a 6 foot patch cable hooked directly into the switch but at 40 meters through our house cable, I could not get a link established. I tested and verified the cable drop and the patch cables which had worked with another print server purchased long ago.. I don't know what the issue is but I would steer clear of this one if your printer is at some distance from your switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 byferryhill from The product does the jobI've used these at work for over 10 years and at home also for several years. There are always cases where you want to network a USB printer that either does not have a network connection or it's network port is not working correctly due to the way the manufacturer has set up network printing and this is my backup plan for those cases. Once you have a static IP address set on your network, it works pretty much flawlessly. The only hard part (sometimes) is figuring out what IP address it has when you first connect it and turn it on. Once in a while I have to reset it but for the most part it works reliably.
