    This review is from: Cisco-Linksys Wireless-G Print Server WPS54GU2 for USB 2.0 (Personal Computers)

    After reading the mixed reviews for this, I I still decided to try the Linksys Wireless Print Server. This is more expensive than the wired print server, I thought it might look nice to my printer (it is USB and the other is parallel / USB) and wireless routers in different locations. Neither multi-function printer. I first tried “wired” a Linksys print server could, but (2) USB printers connect through a hub -. And the price of the print server and the hub was almost the same as the wireless device

    So far so good, but there are a few things before I suggest you do. During the installation of this equipment These are based on personal experiences that are based error is a process of trial and educated. An IT professional can do things differently, but if you were an IT professional, you probably would not read the reviews of. My network is almost exclusively Linksys components (wireless routers, wireless adapters and print servers), although I’m using the network cards that are pre-installed with the computers that are hard wired to the router.
    First, disable the firewall. This allows you to test the compatibility of the printer, the network and the print server to care without additional component. Once everything is up and running, you can enable your firewall and optimize networking no restrictions at this time.
    Secondly, if the configuration of the router (which is the first step), you must do so “wired” to your router. This is part of the instructions, and should not be a surprise. However, make sure you leave the “wired” until you have installed the drivers and print server software on each computer on the network. The installer seems to trouble the print server, if you have disconnected the hard wire connection, even if the print server lights, it is already on the wireless LAN.
    Specify Thirdly, if you disable a Mac address filtering, temporarily these. One you is the print server up and running, you can use the MAC address of the web utility or the BI Admin Utility, and then the filtering after the print server. However, if the Web-based configuration utility (as with your router) you want to use, please follow the instructions in the following paragraph.
    Fourth, once you have installed everything according to the instructions, I recommend: give your print server has a fixed IP address on the network (eg 192.168.1.171). My experience is: If your router uses DHCP to assign IP addresses to your networked computers and servers assign the print server to communicate is not always to the router and the print server are sometimes “disappear” from your network for computers have been and . off Something to do with the order, the computer and the server are on. If this is on a fixed address these problems has cleared for me. Also, because the address of the print server is set, you can use the Web-based configuration utility by the same IP address every time access. Fifth
    the MAC address via the Web-based utility or BI admin. Well, if you. Restore it, your MAC address filtering by your print server’s address to the list of approved test
    Sixth, and test again. Start off your computer and unplug and re-plug your print server. Send documents to any printer from any computer – not just printer test pages. Print actual documents from a “Wordpad” or a similar program.
    Seventh, enable the firewall to remember, used to access the print server on the fixed IP address above permit.
    Eighth test again, just to make sure. If it’s not working now, you know, it is the network settings of your firewall.
    This seemed to work for me.

     2.0 out of 5 stars Watch out USB users , 15 November 2003

    review is from: Cisco-Linksys Wireless-G Print Server WPS54GU2 for USB 2.0 (Personal Computers)

    I have. Linksys fan I have more than a dozen products Linksys access in my house, acess points routers devices Not only the products have been excellent, and dead-simple to use, but the customer service is always great! So the option of paying $ 120 for a Dlink print gets servr or $ 170 for a Linksys, it was a no brainer with the Linksys

    primarily -. This product does not work with my HP PSC 2410 Photosmart printer. In addition, says customer that has problems there linkss print server work with any USB printer. It supposedly works well via the parallel port, but many new printer (and almost all new HP) lacks a parallel port. Moreover declared Linksys customer that this is a hardware problem, and probably will not be determined by firmware or driver upgrade. Thus I’ll be buying my first non-Linksys networking products.

    Yes, it is true, the Linksys documentation is missing some important details that many users need to make it more efficient during product install. Now that I have my mini-home network up and running, but I’m really pleased.

    my set-up is:. Windows XP, HP PSC 2110 USB printer, HP LaserJet 1100 parallel printer, Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and Linksys WPS54GU2 wireless print server

    Let me share a few pointers for those of you who Linksys Wireless Print Server (WPS54GU2) . Buy (1) Make sure the printer driver installed on your PC before you print server. (2) Get your wireless router and running. (3) Turn off Windows XP firewall. I left on the router’s firewall. (4) Add described the print server to your network, such as in Quick Installation Guide. Yes, you need to set it up with your router connected to a network cable. (5) Follow the instructions for “infrastructure” type. (6) Have you disabled security settings. (7) Follow the instructions to install print server driver. This creates the ports to which you print. If you do not have installed the printer (s) already, then you can not use the ports for printers. (8) You should now be able to print your printer. (9) This is where LINKSYS SET-UP GUIDE congratulates you for completing the installation. But wait! YOU ARE PRINT SERVER still connected to a wire! YOU ARE NOT YET WIRELESS! AAARRRGGGHHH! (10) THE SECRET STEP: Take the print server and disconnect the network cable and remove the wait print server power for 1 minute. This sets the print server from wired to wireless. Do not press the “Reset” button. Now connect the print server power. Give the network a minute to see for myself. You should run and wireless . Note: Once it’s running everything, then go back and add security settings. In addition, the HP PSC 2110 is a multifunction printer with a scanner that I can not use, so I do not know if the scanner is working on this print server.

    I am a newbie and after a lot of reading I got this thing to work. I am. 5450 with 2x Xeon procs with 16gig of RAM and 2x 256gig SSD and 3x Samsung 2TB Enterprise Hard Drives The speed, reliability and price is right on the money. I bought 2 more and plan to buy another 3 for backups. This will run for years to come and will not expire for future operating systems.

    This review is from: RPC-4224 4U Server Case w / 24 Hot-Swappable SATA / SAS Drive Bay, Mini SAS connection (Personal Computers)

    A great idea – quickly throw together heavy bunch of space for only a few wings. This product, coupled with commodity PC parts, a semi-enterprisey RAID card and a series of SATA drives, can be just as a beast. If you bit of a more want protection, get a redundant power supply Or depending on the application -. If you want to pay even less use of running something like FreeBSD ZFS (software RAID, more or less) and a cheap SAS Expander
    fans
    There are 6-80mm fans in this matter and they are noisy as hell. in a server room, you will not care, but just about everywhere else you go crazy. This 120mm fan “board”, in the can change, can help. 120mm fan wall mount I do not have personal experience with, but for about $ 11 it’s probably worth a try That, along with a fan speed controller. bring to the noise to a reasonable level. Fans all use the old school Molex power connectors, so there is no way to connect them to the motherboard fan connectors, without an adapter. around It would be easy enough to get a piece together, but I have Looking at both Amazon and monoprice and have not found a ready-made 3-pin fan headers-to-molex power adapter or cable.

    Backplane Interconnect
    SFF-8087 connectors to hook you your hard drive to which motherboard, RAID card or SAS expander use. SFF-8087 allows you to make calls over a four disk cable. If you go by this backplane motherboard SATA ports, be aware that You need what is known as REVERSE breakout cable, not the front outbreak.
    The access to the hard drive backplane is a bit tight, because the “Wail of Hades Fan Plate” (the plate with four 80mm fans directly behind the drives ) sits just a few inches back from these ports. This makes it a bit of a challenge to get up both the SFF-8087 connectors and Molex connectors connected. There are a ton of space behind this fan drive, so I want it to about 1 inch further towards the back of the case. Maybe Norco was intentionally makes it, since some larger server motherboards or redundant power supplies could then get uptight. Either way, this is usually only a one-time experience, so once you’ve got everything hooked you may never again have to worry about it.
    In the first RPC-4224 I got (I bought two of them so far), two of the 24 drive bays were dead. Since I only connect a total of 15 drives (13 Storage ) & 2 mirrored system drives, I was able to work around it very easily. I’ve seen other reviewers with the same complaint, and from what they say, Norco is very forthcoming about these issues addressed. Apparently this outsourcing backplanes is pretty easy, but I did not bother to pursue it. I drew a star, because this looks like a persistent problem.
    What I did with this thing I’ve
    a 32 TB system with this case, a Gigabyte Z68, Intel 2500K CPU and 8GB of RAM. Parts were in this case, together with an installed MegaRAID SAS 9260-16I Single, 16-PORT Int, 6Gb / s SATA + SAS, PCIe 2.0, 512MB, In T and 13 Hitachi Deskstar 3.5 Inch 3 TB CoolSpin SATA 6Gb / s Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit 0S03228 . Running this hard drives on this controller in RAID 6 systems just over 32 TB of storage, it is not the fastest disk subsystem in the world -.. You do not want to run your major SQL databases on it, for example, but we have on the security of our production databases work (as part of a hard disk to disk to tape strategy) and it is much faster than the HP SAN we’ve used so far. HP SAN I just mentioned a few years old, so I can not say that this setup faster / better than enterprise SAN technology. SAN But that was state of the art not so long ago.
    If something breaks on this “backup server”, in an emergency I can head over to Fry and get pretty much everything I need and be ready for use at most a few hours. Hell, for a fraction of the price of nearly every other “true enterprise” SAN solution with comparable capacity (especially with the SAN support costs) I was able to build two of these boxes and full redundancy from top to bottom, then use rsync to efficiently keep all of our backup data on both machines synchronized.
    Unless power consumption goes, I would bet that, although I would be doubled on my hard drives, two complete sets (64 TB in all between the two machines), this low-power … Read more

    review is from: RPC-4224 4U Server Case w / 24 Hot-Swappable SATA / SAS Drive Bay, Mini SAS connection (Personal Computers )

    This tank of a server cabinet making huge storage arrays for each possible! At that price, you really can build your own server, and not go bankrupt!
    And although there are some problems with the backplane in Norco cabinets, Norco is the customer support very helpful and send you the new parts at once, so no worries!
    Only thing to note is that this is a server cabinet. Put these in your living room or bedroom, and your wife is mad as and array of 24 disks, and the rest of the system requires a lot of cooling, and the fans inside, really does the job … But it really makes a noise.
    Please see the discussion, as I have a lot of questions that you might have for this product have responded!

    I’m using this case for a NAS running FreeNAS
    I only have 8 drives in it now, but it was much nicer than my old case
    internal SAS backplane makes things beautiful by removing as many lines as possible
    no complaints from me, except I wish the prices of drives would come back down, so I could make it a little more fill
