Don't assume that the lexmark will actually work with a true network print server. I have had really bad luck with some of them.The Pod said:
I'd have to agree with sticking with name brands. I've been using HP JetDirect printservers for the last 15 years and they are rock solid and have yet to fail. But they are a bit more pricey.Mark S. said:I would stick with name brands like Belkin, Linksys, DLink, etc. I've had nothing but trouble with no-names - probably software related.
I believe most of them (at least the ones I've seen) are only print servers. The multifunction devices like scanning and such would require additional network protocols and/or the software to run/control it from a pc through a network protocol. Usually the higher end multifunction devices that could support beinging networked will already have a NIC installed in them.noshali said:Do they work for multifunction devices...scanner etc. I read somewhere that they are just print servers and one cannot use a multifunction features.
