View Full Version : Wireless AP with print server?
04-22-2005, 04:02 PM
Looking for a good deal on a Wireless AP (802.11b is fine) with a built-in print server? I was hoping for under $50 but pricewatch does not really show much for that price...

can't you pick up any wireless router, disable the router "features", and use that as a print server?

I forgot to clarify, it needs to have a parallel port. It is for an older printer - not ethernet enabled.
You see, my parents are going wireless and have a new laptop, they dread the thought of always getting the printer out just to print something. I know that some Wireless APs have parallel ports on them so you can print to the printer which could be in a closet with the AP. I was just hoping someone knew of a good deal on one of these or if one brand is better than the other.

Do you already have an AP set up? You can get just a wireless print server...

If you can't find one with a parallel port with the wireless AP, there are also ethernet print servers that you can just plug into the back of the wireless AP. Assuming it has ports in the back like Linksys Wireless APS. Some well know ones are HP Jetdirect and Lantronix. It better to have it all in one ( less hassle with power supplies and clutter ).
