    The TE100-P21 Printer Server works great only if you can get passed the installation. The Quick Installation Guide is not helpful especifically when the printers don’t print after following the installation steps via the PS-Wizard. Here are a few things to watch out for:

    My router recognized the TE100-P21 right after the plug-in which was a good sign. The PS-Wizard also seems to make it easy to add printers because it detected the printers I had previously installed on the computer, so you can actually pick from the known printer list. After I completely the steps and hit the “print test page” button, nothing happened. This is when the trouble started. After fussing with installing and deleting printers, I could not get the printers to print. In the end, I followed some reviewer’s suggestion to follow the detail instructions from the User Guide (come with the CD), then it made sense to me that I had an IP address conflict. The default IP address 191.168.0.1 doesn’t work but there was no error messages. After I manually changed the IP address to 191.168.1.121 (it can be any IP address within the acceptable range), I got the printers to work. Once I got it working on one PC (Win/XP), repeating the steps on my other two PCs were easy. Now, all three PCs (2000, XP, and Vista) can print to the printers (Samsung MS-2250 and HP 1200) with no problem.

    Another lesson learned is that during all the fussing by adding and deleting printers to the TCP/IP port, there is no effect on these changes unless you reboot your PC. So, if you messed up with the initial installation, you should delete everything and start over again with a “factory reset”, then reboot your computer. It should work after that.

    After unpacking the print server I was up and printing within 15 minutes on both printers from both computers in my network. It took me a couple of minutes to get the utility “PS-Utility” to see the print server by disabling the Windows firewall and then discovering that I could add the utility to the exceptions list in order to enable to firewall again. I am able to access all printer specific functions through the drivers as if the printers were connected directly to the computer.

    It has been a couple of days and I have had no problems.

    Configuration:
    -Operating System: Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home.
    -Router: Linksys WRT55AG
    -Print server: TRENDnet TE100-P21
    -Dell XPS Gen 3 Desktop connected to router via enet cable.
    -Dell Lattitude laptop connected to router via wireless link.
    -Printers: Cannon IP5000 to USB1 and HP Laserjet 5L to LPT3 of the print server.

    This review is from: TRENDnet 1-Port Print Server TE100-P1U (Blue) (Personal Computers)

    This version works with my Canon PIXMA iP6000D printer, but will not wake it up if it is in powersave mode. The setup went much better than my old NetGear print server, so I bought another one (the TE100-P1U – newer model) for my HP LaserJet 1020. Alas, these print servers do not support the HP LJ 1020. And you cannot find that out on TrendNet’s website; you have to call their Tech Support to see if your printer is supported. The server itself is 4 stars; the support is 2 stars.
