To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The WIFI wireless functionality of my Canon MX472 failed. Rather than connect and print to it from the USB port, I bought this Print Server and connected it to the ethernet port on my Comcast cable modem/router. As usual, once I loaded the Canon printer driver my MAC wirelessly & easily connected to the StarTech print server, (even my Windows shell using the Parallels Desktop S/W. The other PC running Windows 10 took some manual configuring to get it working. So I was able to save and keep using my Canon MX472 printer. This is ideal for connecting a stand alone printer with a USB port and allow it to be networked via your home router.
The device was easy to install and set up, and my printer (Brother L2300 series) was easy to set up as a Bonjour printer, but the Mac would print one document just fine, then spend minutes "looking for printer" on other occasions. This seems to be a longstanding Mac OS problem, which has afflicted other users of networked printers. If you run into this issue, the solution is to not use Bonjour, but rather set up the printer as an IP printer (set the IP address as a static address; the MAC address of the server is on the device's label.) Took me a while to figure this out, but now the printer works as smoothly as if it was on a USB cable.
