We have been using this device for a while now. It does have its funny moments and you do occasionally need to restart the software on your PC, but it worked well enough for the family to all share one printer. BUT:

a) The setup software is really cranky and poorly written.

b) There are NO Windows7 x64 drivers or even Windows7 drivers. We don't have any PCs in the house now that can configure this device and our newest PC arrived FROM HP with Windows7 x64. HP needs to update its software so that its devices don't go end of life so quickly

Works somewhat OK, but tends to lock itself sometimes. Is not recognised by a second PC, when one PC is already connected to it. I buy it to share the printer between several PC, and it does not fill this purpose.

Verified Purchase
Hi all,

this item was an excellent surprise, my dad has an Epson DX4450 multifunction printer and he was tired that he had to turn on the PC all the time...

I was a bit worried due to previous bad experiences with hp printer routers, but this was a very nice surprise.

I unpacked everything (2 usb cables, a micro to standard usb, and another usb printer cable, the power supply and the router itself), and for a change, I followed the instructions carefully :)

So, I inserted the DVD and followed the instructions on screen and voilá, besides the 10 minutes waiting for the epson site to deliver the drivers (even with a 50 Mb connection from my side), it all worked right from the box.

In 15 minutes I had one laptop (XP Professional) and one PC (with Windows 7) printing and scanning (one operation and one client at a time, no simultaneous usage).

Very happy with the purchase and I would buy it again!!!

I already have an HP F380 all-in-one printer and up to 4 computers that I wish to share it with. As I already have a wireless network - I purchased this device.
Following the instructions I ended up with sucessfull wireless printing and scanning. Just make sure that the firewall software on each PC/Laptop sees the IP Address of the 2101 as a 'trusted' source otherwise the Connection Manager software will see the printer but be unable to connect to it. Also wise to check on the HP website for compatibility with your printer.
As I can now print or scan wirelessly from/to any PC/Laptop on my network - be it an XP or Vista device - I am happy.
The system has subsequently proved reliable and easy to use so I can recommend it.

The specs for this wireless print server say it can handle WPA wireless encryption but I've tried to set it up several times, using both a PC and a Mac, and it just won't connect to the network. From what I've read on forums about this print server, I suspect I could get it to work if I switch my network to WEP encryption, but since this can be easily broken, it means I'd have to leave my network unsecured.

I've even tried downloading the setup software from HP (in case there was an update to fix the setup problems) but to no avail. As far as I can see, this print server is not much use unless you're willing to risk running it on an unsecured network.

I wouldn't recommend this to anybody.

Cheap and nasty implementation, doesn't support any of the standard printing protocols so you have to run the HP connection manager all the time. This is pretty much a guarantee it isn't going to be much use when you upgrade to the next version of Windows or OS/X.

Bought item and tried to setup on my Windows 7 64bit OS, does not work, did some research and found that there is no driver to support this and confirmed by HP also.

This device is fantastic, if you have a HP printer and a wireless network then this is an easy solution.
I have one of these with a HP Laser 1022, and it now means that the printer is located downstairs where it can be accessed, rather than tucked in a corner with the server upstairs.
It works by creating a virtual USB port on your computer, and then connecting on demand. I wouldn't say it is a solution for any high volume managed printing, but it works great as for SOHO/home use.
It deserves 5 stars, but I can only give it 4 because it took a bit of work to remove the old printer drivers and reconfigure them, but I suspect that this was just my set up.
