advice on wireless print server
Posted on 2006-05-22
I am planning to purchase a wireless print server, and would like to know if there are any recommendations. I have looked at a Belkin, a Trendnet, a Hawking, and a Linksys.
I have a wireless network, using a linksys router. I have an HP LaserJet 8500 and an HP DesignJet 130 that I plan to connect to the prinet server. Both are either a parallel or usb connection. None of the print servers I've looked at have gotten consistently good reviews. The linksys got a pretty low score from pcmag. I like the Trendnet and the Hawking, because both offer three ports, one parallel and 2 usb. The reviews of the Hawking indicated that it could be very challenging to set up, and I have not found any reviews of the Trendnet.
I am looking at the Trendnet TEW-P21G and the Hawking HWPS12UG.
Any other options I should consider?
Does any one have any recommendations about how I might choose?
