Multiple Printer Print Server

Postby risoftwi » Thu Aug 12, 2004 1:06 pm

Does anybody know of a print server, router combo that allows multiple printers to be connected?

Edit: The printer ports would have to be USB

I don't think there is a commercial grade router with more then 1 Print Server built in.
You can get separate print servers with more then one port.

Thank you. I guess I just want to stay away from the wireless solution, but it doesn't hurt to try it out.

DLINK has a wired solution, but its 2 parallel port printers and 1 usb.
I am sure that will change, but for now the wifi solution is the best choice.

Yeah I guess I can just set-up printer sharing on one system and then get a print server later on down the road. Either that or I can pick up a couple of the USB to Parallel adapters. I don't know. I guess all is well for the time being.

USB to Parallel adapters may not work on printer servers

Well I guess I'll just scrap the whole project for now and buy a new TV, or CPU parts one of the two.
