Apple Personal Laserwriter LS

I just got an Apple Personal Laserwriter LS, and I want to be able to connect it to a PC.  The only connector on the back is for a Mac Printer, no PC port.  I have PC drivers, but I need a way to connect it to my PC.  Is there an adapter, and if so, where can I get one?

You might be hosed. Is your PC ethernet capable?
Not a problem, all you need is the correct cable. See the following web site.

It is the LaserWriter LS that I have, not the NT.  I did some checking around on that address that you gave me, and it said that there was no PC support for the LS.  Thanks for your help though.

BTW, does anybody want to buy an Apple Personal LaserWriter LS?

You might go to and contact their sales or support department.  I used alot of Farallon products in the past to connect Macs and PC's.
Well, what would you want for the printer?
There is something called Etherprint from Dayna. See at

It's a hardware box which connects up to two (or four with the expert version) localtalk ports (ie. printers) to the ethernet. This would involve connecting both mac and PC to a network, of course. Next to that you can try the Laserwriter bridge software from Apple, which is free nowadays, which basically maps localtalk ports to the network - but I'm quite unsure if this would work on PCs as well.
