Wireless print server purchasing advice

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Hi all,



I've decided to get a wireless print server for the Lexmark C510 color laser printer. Would like to know if anyone has any recommendations for a wireless print server.



I would like something with at least 2 USB ports - thus the Apple Airports are out of the question - and a wired networked bridge so I can plug with a network cable - for an NAS, say.



I was looking at products from Linksys, D-link, and Netgear and was about to buy one but then I saw the system requirements and none of the companies mentioned Macintosh or OS X. I downloaded the "quick install" guides and they all seem to be Windows-only.



So, does anyone know of any good wireless print servers? I would assume that even though the products mentioned above have Windows-only instructions, one would be able to set them up with a Mac also?



Thanks,



Alex

    First mistake... Lexmark. Cheap junk. That will be the extent of my so-called "advice".

    Sorry, I didn't mean to pretend to actually know anything useful.
