The main concern is the web interface, and the fact that as soon as I set a new password, the device becomes completely inaccessible. The interface itself is poorly designed and buggy but it did at least allow me to set a new static IP address. The tendency to reboot for every single setting change, usually quite unnecessarily, isn't reassuring either. We have a small well-firewalled network so lack of a password isn't the end of the world, but with such poor attention to interface design and testing, instinct tells me other problems will reveal themselves soon enough.
Cheapness of manufacture is obvious, with both front and back of the device used for connections. It's more convenient and better for usability, but costs a little more, to put the USB, power and Ethernet sockets on the back and the status LEDS on the front, so with this device you know you're getting something of very modest quality right out of the box.
FYI, the default static IP for the device is 192.168.0.10. For most users, setting the device to accept DHCP addresses would probably be the best option.
Also, the Factory Reset, which is as usual a recessed button operated with a pencil tip or paperclip, doesn't work if the device is already on: you force a reset by switching off, then pressing and holding the Reset while simultaneously pushing in the DC power plug. Somewhat tricky and counter-intuitive and another poor design choice.
I wanted to drive my printer from my laptops, through the Virginmedia box - and not directly. That way I can do it from all over the house. But my laptops all run a minor Linux distro.
The product description says the printer server will work with Linux (I checked before I ordered) - but the included mini CD was for Windows only. And there were downloads on the TP-Link website for Windows and Mac, but not for Linux.
In the event, installing the print server was easy. I entered the IP number from the printed instructions. Found a printer from the list, and it was as easy as that. Actually, I have an Epson WF-100, and that wasn't in the list so I lied and told my laptops that I have an Epson WF-1100 - but it worked.
If I can make it work with Linux, you can make it work with anything - I recommend it.
But it ships with a factory default of a fixed IP on 192.168.0.* so if your network uses something else, you will first have to attach it back-to-back with a network cable and a browser and change it, or mess around with a clunky app off a mini-CD that won't work in a laptop CDROM drive if you use Windows or MacOS. They'd lose nothing by making the default DHCP. If any of that scares you, buy something else!
Loses a star because the supplied documentation and installation disk haven't been updated since Win 7 and neither has the on-line product page. The supplied software does not install the server in a Win10 environment.
That said, setting up on Win10 is relatively straightforward but because Win10 uses TCPIP printing (don't understand the finer points of the distinction between this and Win8 myself, so won't try and explain here) the set up follows a different process to Win8. Win 10 is not difficult to install, but it first took a Google search to find the relevant FAQ in the TP LINK website and the explanation isn't perfect, but I was able to work it out.
TP-LINK needs to reword the wIn10 instructions and put the link prominently on the product page.
The Print Server Setup software supplied is for Windows Vista/7. I installed on Windows 10. Note that you MUST install as Administrator or it starts up and goes absolutely nowhere As the software is supplied on a Micro CD and I have a slot CD drive I couldn't use it on my computer. There is a download link mentioned in the documentation for the software but the link does not exist and the software is nowhere to be seen on the TP Link site. I ended up using a different computer to copy the Micro CD contents onto a USB dongle.
You need to fix the IP address for the device on your router. The default is 192.168.0.10 or 192.168.1.10 depending on your network mask. The device defaults to this, you just set the router to always reserve the IP address by linking the MAC address. Easier than it seems.
If you follow the apparently non-logical directions in the install manual from that point then it does install properly.
Once installed I connected to my Macbook Air in seconds. Just add a printer, choose IP printer,set to 192.168.0.10, set the queue to lp1 and then choose 'other' and browse for your printer.
It's a quality device which is let down by the documentation and software.
