his item is advertized as working for MAC OS X 10.4 & 10.3 - I have 10.4.8

I am not able to see printers on scan after installing -- I have a netgear wireless router that does DHCP & I set the printserver to the SSID controlled by this router, to use DHCP. Does anyone have any experience with the DPR 1260 (or similar) and MAC OS X?  Also can't see the printer server in the network.

I have finally got this to work:
 D-Link DPR 160 Wireless Print Server & MAC OS X 10.4.8

1. Connect MAC to print server with ethernet cable & set up using default IP address supplied. NOTE: Print Wizard cannot be used as it is unsupported -- just go ahead and manually set Network settings and wireless settings.
2. Setup - Network settings: Set IP Address to be static within the range used by the main wireless router for your network-- same subnet mask and the IP address of the main wireless router as default gateway.
3. Setup - Wireless settings: Wireless - On, Wireless network name (SSID) -- same as the network SSID used for your router. Wireless mode - Infrastructure.
4. Plug in the USB printers as described in the D-Link manual
5. Once the set-up is done - disconnect the cable and access through the browser wirelessly using the IP address that you set (static). You can always change and edit your settings from this access.

6. Go to MAC Printer Setup utility: Use IP printer, Protocol: LPD, Address: Static IP you set, Queue: Copy exactly from the D-Link browser page that gives Device Info (your printers should be shown there). Name - I used the one from the D-Link Device Info page.
7. Set "Print Using" to the driver available for your printer.

Note: Default Browser does not see the printers, IPP didn't work (could not access IP address -- "busy"). HP jetdirect would work for one printer (has  queue greyed out).

The printers I set so far were an HP Photosmart 7350 and a Brother MFC-8220
