Contrary to previous reviews I'd say this is actually a pretty good product - the only potential issue may be that you need to know what to do regarding wireless networks.

Seeing the negative feedback and talking to people I was told/read that the main issue is that the Print Server starts off within a certain IP range - and that was the key issue with most consumers.
The current documentation (I got version 2 of the product) was revised to reflect that point.

In my case this proved no issue - using Vista - I am sure Win7 will be similar - one can directly connect to the Print Server over via in an Ad-Hoc network - using the setup CD it is possible to then change the settings according to your router's Wi-Fi setup - knowing the settings of your router is advantageous here. (Encryption type, authentication type, Network SSID and Password)

Having done that the print server is ready to use.

This is where I deduct 1 star from 5 - giving it 4 stars.
Printing is no problem at all - the only issue is that the printer cannot communicate back to the computer.
If I want to change settings on the printer itself - say automatic on/off - then my computer will tell me that it cannot read the printer's settings - however I can write a new configuration to the printer - a Canon Pixma iP4700.

Apart from this minor flaw I'd say this is a product worth buying.

Currently I wonder as to whether this could be changed via a firmware update - it seems like a minor thing - it just requires the print server to be able to send data and not only receive it - but seeing as it communicates back during setup I cannot see that as being a problem.

For the eco-minded - it's supposed to consume 3,3V at 2A - i.e. 6,6W max. from the specs on the back of the device.

I read the last review and thought that after a couple years TP Link would of sorted any problems, after several hours, calls to international call centres for help I was ready to send back. This has to be one of the worse set up Manuel's I have seen. I finally got the product working and it does its job well its just setting it up where it fails.
