Amazon.com Product Description

The Linksys EtherFast 10/100 3-Port PrintServer is the easiest and quickest way to add one, two, or even three printers to your 10BaseT or Fast Ethernet network. Whether you're building a Fast Ethernet network now or later, the PrintServer automatically adjusts itself to either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps speeds.

A stand-alone solution that doesn't require a dedicated print server PC, the PrintServer houses three high-speed parallel ports that can handle incoming print jobs concurrently. That means you can put printers on your network where you need them most without having to worry about printing bottlenecks. Equipped with Direct Memory Access (DMA) technology, a 128 KB buffer, and automatic collision control, the PrintServer can process print jobs up to 50 percent faster than regular print servers--even on jobs with complex graphics and layouts. ...

Features

  • Bidirectional PrintServer for 10BaseT and 100 Mbps networks
  • Add up to 3 printers to most networks in minutes
  • Supports printing through all 3 printer ports simultaneously
  • Runs with most laser, ink-jet, Bubble Jet, color, and dot matrix parallel printers
  • Stand-alone unit--no dedicated print server PC required

4-0 out of 5 stars Independent Printer Server
The Linksys EPSX3 EtherFast 10/100 PrintServer3 is used for making your printer independent on the 10BaseT and 100 Mbps networks. You hook up your printer/printer cable to the Linksys EPSX3 EtherFast 10/100 PrintServer3 and your network cable to the RJ-45 port.

It comes with it's owm AC plug-in power supply, Status and Error Lights.

Hookup is easy but when it comes to software, you need to install the driver for the printserver on each PC that need to use it. You also need to select SC811326_p1 Printserver port and install your printer driver on each PC. Remember to select "LOCAL" printer port because the instructions tell you to do it.

Overall, after the software is install the right way, this Printer Server is the best thing that I bought because it makes the printer independent. Any PC can now print reguardless of other PC's.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quick & easy to set-up and use
After reading the reviews posted by other users I was a little nervous about whether or not this would work OK with Windows XP, so I called Linksys prior to purchasing to find out if my three printers would work. They confirmed they would, although they didn't sound too sure about it. I have the following printers:
1. HP LaserJet 6P
2. HP LaserJet 5P
3. HP DeskJet 722C.

I connected the hardware, as per the Quick Set-up guide, and then ran the Configuration Wizard from the CD on my three machines:
1. Server running Windows Server 2000
2. Desktop running Windows 2000 Pro
3. Desktop running Windows XP Pro

The print server was quickly detected on my PC running Windows Server and the printers were added quickly and easily. On the other two PC's I had to install the three printers I wished to use as local printers, but this is also covered in the Quick Set-up guide.

All-in-all it was a quick and easy set-up, probably about forty minutes from start-to-finish. One thing I must mention though is that I do not have Windows XP's Internet Connection Firewall enabled as I am using a Linksys WRT54G Wireless router as a firewall. Once I had the system up and running I turned on the Internet Connection Firewall and could no longer connect to my printers. So if you are a Windows XP user you MUST turn off the Internet Connection Firewall in order to use this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really good
I have used the old version (flat box) of this for over two years and it works just fine. The installation of this two-year-old software was straight-forward but I am sure some will find it a challange. It took some knowledge but it worked fine. I upgraded from Win98 to Win2K to WinXP and had to reinstall the software each time so it got easier. Customer service was needed once and it was superb: the rep was competent and patient. I have a Linksys cable router and a switch and I recommend the Linksys products without reservation.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you run Windows XP, you may not want this print server
I have three computers at home, two running XP Professional and one running XP home. I decided to purchase the EPSX3 so that I wouldn't have to leave a computer on to work as a print server.

Now, keep in mind that my job involves the setup and use of the computers on a daily basis. Therefore, the setup of this print server should have been a snap. Wrong!

Evening one consisted of hooking up the print server to my Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless Acess Port. Hey, two Linksys products should work well together, right? I ran the setup program as specified in the instructions, but no matter how hard I tried, the print server remained invisible. I got the same result on all three computers. I gave up after about two hours.

Evening two, I spotted the review submitted [on Amazon.com]. [They] mentioned that there is an issue with the Windows XP firewall. I disabled the firewall, and I was able to access the print server.

To sum it up, if you want to use this print server under Windows XP, I believe these steps should help to get you there:
1. Disable the XP firewall. If you do this though, make sure you've got some other means of protection for your system.
2. Make sure that you've already installed the driver for the printer(s) you want to use.
3. This print server defaults to DHCP. Therefore, you don't have to disable DHCP to use it.
4. Run the setup program as described in the instructions provided with the router.
5. Once you get to an option that says "Add Printer", this option won't work under XP. However, because you should have already installed the driver for your printer(s), you should be able to select it.
6. Select "Finish" and you should be good to go.

Good Luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't get much easier than this...
This print server took less than 10 minutes to set up, and it works like a charm. There's only 4 steps to the whole process:
1. Connect the print server to your network.
2. Connect the printer to the print server and turn the printer on.
3. Connect the power cord to the print server.
4. Install the software on your computer.

It worked right out of the box for me. It detected my Epson Stylus color 600 printer correctly immediately, and setting it up to print on my computer was very straight-forward. I did make some changes to the configuration although that is not necessary. I just like to run a thight ship, so I gave it a static IP address (by default, the DHCP client is enabled), and disabled the protocols that I don't need.

The print server supports AppleTalk, so it should work with Macs as well as Windows computers. However, there are no drivers for Linux, but it supports IPP, so it should be possible to print to it from Linux boxes as well.

Update: Here's one minor issue I've found: I'm printing out pictures that I've taken with my digital camera. These pictures are fairly large, and when printing out several images at the same time, you'll get a warning saying the print server is busy. The message does go away, and the image will print... As I said, minor nuisance. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for the novice
I purchased this unit and an additional 120GB drive. Found the unit installs quickly and comes up quite nicely. I had some issues with the automatic back-up configuration. Their help line was polite, but not very knowledgable about the product. They finally decided that I had to upgrade the system ROM. Following their instructions, I attempted to do this and it failed mid-way thru the upgrade. I decided it wasn't worth the time and effort to try and resolve it thru their support, I'd just wait a few months until they had some more experience.

Now I have had the network connection die and I'm unable to connect. Calling support again, I was given a return authorization and told a new unit would ship within 24 hours. Alas, it will be two weeks, because the unit is on backorder. In addition, their policy is to charge you for the new unit and refund the money when they receive the broken one. Shipping takes 2 weeks, charging takes 5 minutes!!!

Being somewhat self-sufficient, I decided to just remove the drive and install it in a USB enclosure, so work could continue. Wrong again, as the EFG120 uses a stripped down version of Linux and the disks aren't compatiable with anything but Linux.

Every other piece of Linksys gear I have (which is a lot) works great. I'm sure this will get better over time, but right now this product needs to mature, before the average user buys it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Problem with parralle port
This not supported all the printers. I have a BJC-5100, and it's not work with EFG120.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with EFG120
I got one of these and set it up on my network. I quickly
found that it was not as billed. For one thing no one but Admin can upload
files to it via web interface, so unless you are going to make every user on
it an admin, and toss security right out the window, you have to put their
files on it for them. Secondly, command line FTP just plain does not work. I
can connect to it from my servers at work, and login, but that's all I can
do. If I try to put files on it the session locks up or I am disconnected. I
have called and written Linksys support numerous times. When I call I am
routed to India, and end up talking to people who have to go ask someone
else every question I have and get back to me. If you are considering this
unit keep shopping, there are better NAS units out there. I wouldn't do it
again. It would seem to me that this product was rushed to market before it
was ready and without adequate testing. Other limitations of the EFG120 are
also evident, for instance you can only put one of them on your network for
remote access. This is because the web interface will serve up only one
version of the login script, LOGIN.CGI. If Linksys/Cisco would make
available to the admin account the file under different names, such as
LOGIN1, 2, 3....CGI, you could put more than one of these on your LAN to be
accessed by different URL's. Well, you could, if the Linksys router would allow you to put more than one IP address in the DMZ, which it will not. Both issues need to be addressed. That they have not done this I find to be
somewhat short-sighted. When I am on the phone with the kid in India I am
told that fixes should be available in the next version of the firmware,
perhaps in a month or two. When I used the support chat utility on the
Linksys page, I got some jerk who, when he could not address my questions,
simply, and quite rudely, disconnected me. I must honestly say I would not
recommend this product to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome product!!!
I got one of these last week. It takes longer to get it out of the box than to install it. I added a second 120gb disk to it and now I am thrilled at how easily I can add and manage disk space. It's set up so that one disk holds all my MP3s and the other disk is an automated backup of the first.

Highly recommended product!! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Linksys Instant Wireless Access Point (WAP) serves as communicationsheadquarters for a reliable 11 Mbps wireless network. We found the WAP, used inconjunction with the Linksys Instant Wireless PC Card (and PCI adapter if thewireless card is used in a desktop PC) and a hub or switch, to be a true leaderin the move toward wireless networking. In case you are having any confusion, here is a graph illustrating the differences between an Access Point and a Router with Access Point:

access point vs. router

The unit itself is handsome in design and somewhat reminiscent of the oldrabbit-ears antenna system used on older televisions. Installing the WAPinvolves several steps. A USB connection allows for configuration, andinstalling the USB configuration software allows for monitoring and adjustingsettings such as channel, IP address, and Service Set Identifier (SSID).Connecting the unit to a hub or switch using Category 5 cable (which is notincluded) gives the WAP network access and the ability to begin sendingmeaningful signals.

The WAP has three indicator lights: power, link, and activity. The linkindicator lights up amber when a link is established with the hub, and theactivity light flickers somewhat uncertainly when there is network activity. Theantennas can be adjusted left and right, and we found that pointing them in thedirection of the wireless computer did result in a stronger signal.

We found the accompanying user guide somewhat lacking; it gave little guidanceon how the network can be configured. And the customer service hotlineunfortunately does little more than refer you to your computer's manufacturer.Those who are new to networking may want to bone up on the basics beforebeginning on a wireless network endeavor--plenty of resources exist on the Weband in print to guide your networking foray. But for those who are transformingan existing wired network into a wireless one, the transition will be fairlypainless and straightforward.

In use, the WAP performs well: in the same room, the signal strength to and fromthe Linksys wireless network card is consistently above 95 percent. We separatedthe card from the access point by one plaster wall and found that the signalstrength was reduced to around 80 percent. Separating them with a closeted wallpulled the signal strength down to about 50 percent. At opposite ends of thehome (with numerous plaster walls between), the signal strength maintains atabout 35 percent.

The rate of data transmission declines proportionately, starting at an ideal 11Mbps and going to 3 or 4 Mbps at extreme distance and separation.While stillreliable, the main difference in performance we noticed was in the basicdata-transmitting functions: slower copying, pasting, opening, and access ofresources on other network nodes. While these speeds don't lend themselves wellto intensive LAN game play, they are suitable for sharing data betweenresources, as well as sharing print resources.

Overall, the Linksys wireless package is optimal for those not wishing to stringcable throughout a home or office. While performance and speed are comparable toslower wired networks, this is a ready solution for those who need a worldwithout wires, for whatever reason. This package is also ideal for those who arecomfortable with networking configurations and troubleshooting, and are ready totake the leap into wireless. --Emilie Dirks

Pros:

  • Easy resource sharing that's ideal for small office/home office
  • Simple installation and fairly straightforward configuration

Cons:

  • Transmission speeds much lower than current fast Ethernet connections (onwired networks)
  • Lackluster customer support and documentation

1-0 out of 5 stars FINAL Update to "Free At Last!" - No longer good!
My ultimate review (Final update to "Free at last") showed my experience with the latest edition of this access point, the infamous V2. It's NOT good. The V2 has problems with WEP, that is, wireless encryption.

I found the latest Linksys product is crippled (I tried 2 of them) and the SMC product is the better alternative (I'm using it now).

So, for all you who chose to purchase based on my old review (of an obsolete model) - I apologise.

4-0 out of 5 stars It takes patience
I purchased this WAP because of it had an affordable price and adequate performance for my needs. I have a laptop, but I didn't want to be tethered to my Linksys BEFSR41 4-port Cable DSL Router. I purchased the WAP11 Wireless Access Point along with my Linksys WPC54G 802.11g PC Card (802.11g is backwards compatible with 802.11b) so that I could move freely around my apartment and still have access to both the internet (via my cable modem) and the files on my desktop PC. I could also use the wireless network at work.

Now that things are working well together, I'm glad, but the devices weren't cooperative at first. For the better part of a week, I was playing with the settings for my WAP, my router, and my wireless card. What I have found works is changing the default profile's SSID in the Linksys Wireless Connection Manager (I installed it in Windows XP because it seems to be handling connecting to multiple access points better than Windows XP) to "any." This will allow the card to connect to the closest access point.

Using encryption was a little troublesome, as well. The WAP allows you to enter a passphrase from which the WAP calculates the key. The Windows wireless connection manager only allows you to enter the key. This is not an easy task with a 128-bit key. The Linksys manager, however, does allow you to enter the passphrase and calculates the key for you. This was much easier, and I now have encrypted wireless communications.

One last thing to think about is the use of a 2.4GHz cordless phone. Our cordless phone will occaisionally use the same channel, which kills the connection between my laptop and my WAP. After forcing the phone to find another channel, my connection is restored.

2-0 out of 5 stars I Live In Constant Fear That Any Second It Will Stop Working
I don't know if its the WAP11 or if its the WUSB11 or if Linksys makes garbage, but the wireless network I set up is totally unreliable. I've spent the past 2 days on the phone for an average of 5 hours a day trying to get this thing to work and it still doesn't. It's all the more frustrating since I HAVE NO IDEA WHY IT DOESN'T WORK.

It gets two stars because for the 5 minutes a day that it works, it works great. It's faster than the wired connection I used to work on and the ability to work in a different part of my house is invaluable to me. Which makes me so mad that it doesn't work reliably enough.

After reading some of the other reviews, I'm not the only one who has gone through this, so it's not just me. Good luck trying to find support on the web, especially at broadbandwhatever.com as those guys are no help. And although Linksys's tech support people are very nice, they take forever to get to the root of the problem and THEN THE PROBLEM COMES BACK! Plus you spend 2 hours on hold waiting for somebody to get on the phone.

My goodness, I'm returning this tomorrow and trying a different company.

2-0 out of 5 stars Dead after 1 1/2 year
Linksys WAP11 worked flawlessly for about 6 month, then it started to drop communication about every couple of days, then it just gradually gotten worse. Before it went completely dead on me, it was dropping communication with my PC about 1 minute after I reset the Access Point. All I could say is that I am not pleased with Linksys products since it is my second Linksys product that went out of commission shortly after the 1 year warranty. I am not sure if I'll buy another Linksys product, but I really like the fact that WRT54G has lots of third party support to add features to the factory build firmware. Naah...I won't give Linksys another chance.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad little WAP
I'm a network engineer for a Fortune 500 company. I design, configure, and install 2.4 GHz wireless networks for a living. Since I can't bring the Cisco 2100's home with me, I thought I'd go with a Linksys (now a division of Cisco) WAP11. For me, this product was a breeze to set up and configure. The setup disk wouldn't run on my laptop running Win2k, but ran fine on my home PC running XP Pro. The product description told of a USB port for easy configuration. Perhaps that port is present on newer or different models, but mine has no USB port, which is a bummer because that's how I wanted to configure it. Also, when configuring it over HTTP, which was my only choice, the IP Address had to be static. I couldn't access it when it was set to DHCP. Overall, though, I was clipping right along wirelessly in my home within a half hour of opening the box. The WAP11 doesn't have all of the features I'm used to at work, but it's a great home product and I think, by following the inclosed step by step instructions, it shouldn't take a networking novice to have it up and running in no time. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The Linksys wireless signal booster piggybacks onto your Linksys wireless access point (or wireless access point router) to increase the effective range and coverage area of your 802.11b network. The added signal strength also helps speed up your close-range communications, because every packet comes through "loud and clear," reducing retransmissions due to reception errors.

To install, just stack the Linksys wireless signal booster on your access point, move the antennas to the booster, and attach the booster's twin cables to the access point--no drivers or modifications to your setup are necessary.

The Linksys wireless signal booster saves wiring costs and helps build corporate wireless infrastructure by driving signals even into those distant, reflective corners and hard-to-reach areas. And it's perfect for covering large areas in warehouse environments, public spaces, wireless hot spots, and outdoor venues--anywhere you need extra coverage for your wireless LAN.

NOTE: The Wireless Signal Booster is certified by the FCC for use only with the Linksys Wireless Access Point, model number WAP11 and the Linksys Wireless Access Point Router, model number BEFW11S4. ... Read more

Features

  • Increase the effective range of your Linksys 802.11b Access Point or Wireless Access Point Router
  • Stronger signal improves throughput by reducing retransmissions
  • Save on wiring costs--increase your Access Point's coverage into hard-to-reach areas
  • Simple installation--stack, connect, and go
  • Comes with everything you need to install booster

5-0 out of 5 stars A no-brainer purchase and install
The reality of WiFi is that just about everyone I know is not getting as solid a signal as they'd like. I've been frustrated by dead spots in the house, and I'm sure we've all done strange "rain dances" with our notebooks, cables, antennas, etc. to try to improve the signal.

However, my WiFi network did not seem as zippy as my Ethernet when using our cable modem, even though the bandwidth of both networks dwarfs the cable modem. Well, instantly after installing the booster, I got noticeably better response in a room where the signal used to be so weak that Linksys' own utility would show no signal strength (even though I could surf from there).

The WSB24 is trivial to install (180 seconds and that was because I didn't know you had to push the cable onto the connector pretty firmly). If you were a LinkSys pioneer and bought the early access points, you owe it to yourself to upgrade with this booster.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but...
...there's a better way to handle the wireless range problem, and for less money. I have used my WSB24 for a few months, and probably have seen a 25% boost in thru-put at the far ends of the house (important as we're now running 3 thermostats, 2 TiVos, a variable number of laptops & the new 802.11b Linksys camera, all via wireless).
Anyway, recently I added 2 more BEFW11S4 combination routers (wired and wireless) and instead of plugging my ethernet cable into local PCs, I've plugged them into the supplemental routers and then used one of the 4 ports on these for the local PC. The effect is that the local machine still gets the benefit of hard wired network access, while the wireless end of the routers supplies broader areas within the house with a full signal.
I guess that's an obvious solution (though it took me a while to figure it out), but with the router price just a little more than half the price of a wireless access point/bridge (WET11) and less than the cost of this booster, this approach has solved all my issues handsomely. Access anywhere is just as robust as it is at the (still in use) WSB24.
I am now in Networked Nirvana!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product, but WiFi throughout your house? Not quite...
Probably around 2/3 of the walls in my home are brick. For whatever reason, this has always limited my ability to use my Linksys wireless router as far away as I could in an apartment with drywall. Anyway, adding the signal booster was an improvement. It doesn't extend coverage to the entire house, but it does boost the strength of the signal to the point that I don't have to worry about drop-offs in the next room (which is behind a brick wall). Installation was not even a 5 minute process, but don't think that getting WEP encryption up and running will be an easy process. I had to be walked through it on the phone by a Linksys tech support guy (who was great).

1-0 out of 5 stars i bought one and it did not work for me
I bought one of your linksys booster, and it did not work out for me. I dont really know what is wrong with it i tryed it with a linksys assespoint, but it did not work as well.I am not happy with this product beacuse i cant use it and my money is gone what can be done.

4-0 out of 5 stars Improved signal..less variance in power...better overall
I was very skeptical about buying this product. I already had good transmission rates in my townhome (60% being the worst, 100% being the best). I have my wirelress router in the ceiling of the attic of my house, thus, I get great reception both inside and outside my house. However, with the advent of wireless being cheaper, my neighborhood has become populated with wireless-lans (exposed and unprotected I might add...something that is useful for me in a pinch). However, the problem that I was suffering was that I get great reception from my router in some parts of the house, however, two floors down from the router, I was actually getting better reception from a neighbor's house. I also had interference from 2.4GHz phones and even the microwave oven (which sometimes caused dead-spots in my living room when running). All of these problems are gone now that I have the booster.

I read quite a bit about this unit before buying it. It is straightforward enough. It takes the average router TX/RX power from 5W to 15W in terms of average power. The other thing it also seems to do (according to my wi-fi measures) is it significantly cut down the "variance" of reception. If you have a good signal - you have it all over the coverage area. Don't necessarily expect to see a 80% signal go to 100%. But, do expect to see a much larger 80% cone in your coverage area! Similarly, if you have a poor signal - it goes from poor to good within that area, and the cone will be much larger. Finally, before with linksys routers, my "signal strength" gauges would bounce up and down... now they hardly move at all (another measure of variance).

If you already have very good reception and line of sight in your WLAN - I don't recommend this product as you are unlikely to see any of the alleged speed benefits. However, if you are contending with significant interference (from 2.4 phones, other WLAN's, etc.) this product does a good job at increasing signal reception in hostile wireless environs. This product also does well in penetrating drywall, flooring, concrete (since I can get reception from my router outside my house standing inside a concrete shed... although it is only 20%!), and other types of building materials. Under these circumstances, the extra bucks in the form of a booster may be a better solution versus WLAN bridges/repeaters.

Overall, worth the price, but, you really don't know what kind of improvements you will get beforehand. I recommend you buy the booster if you have less than 80% signal strength (or signal strength jumps from 40-80%), but otherwise, save the money. The speed improvements are not really noticable if you already have a good signal. However, if you have interference (from building materials or other sources) - this may be a good stop-gap measure before investing in repeaters, bridges, and the like. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mouse emulation
This KVM (as well as many others on the market) uses mouse and keyboard emulation, which allows one machine to be booting while the other machine is selected.

This particular switch is hardwired to emulate a generic 2-button wheel-type mouse, which means that any other type of mouse (like an old trackball, in my case) will probably not work correctly.

Some KVMs say explicitly (in their product spec) that they support particular mice models or types. For example, Startech's Ultra Compact 2-Port KVM Switch (SV211MICRO) supports MS Intellimouse (Pro Version), MS Explorer and MS Optical Mouse.

So the upshot is:

If you have a generic 2-button wheel-type mouse, any KVM should work; otherwise, you need to look for a KVM that explicitly supports your mouse model or type. And if you have a really old mouse, you may be out of luck.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good for swiching bad for mouse and keyboard features.
If you use this KVM you'll loose almost all extra features and functions of your keyboard e.g. thumb-button, internet-shortkeys-buttons (my Logitech products are seriously crippled), and the support even advise against using cordless products. None of this information you'll find in the manual or on the retail-box!

2-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating to use KVM
Having used an older Linksys KVM for several years, I chose Linksys again. Unfortunately this was not a good choice. The hot key switching does not always work. I use a Logitech Cordless keyboard and Cordless trackball and the double click does not get processed quick enough to switch about 25% of the time. Get a hard button KVM as well as hotkeys.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't compare to IO Gear
While this product worked with my new custom P4 2.8 GHz and my older custom PII400, it failed miserably with a Gateway P133 and the same PII400. The mouse was not recognized on the Gateway, the keyboard would not work with the mouse plugged into the KVM, and the monitor went black with each keystroke even after removing the mouse. I tried several different configs, even different mice, with no success. I took it to work where I have 2 Gateway PII400s, and it failed with them as well. Before you blame Gateway, I went and bought an IO Gear KVM for $50, including an audio connector. We use IO Gear 4 port box-style switches at work with great success. The 2 port mini KVM from IO Gear worked flawlessly. LinkSys' site doesn't even list the KVM as a product they sell. Stay away from this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply terrific
So far, I've bought two of these, and I'm about to buy my third. It's easy to connect, inexpensive, and reliable. If you don't need DVI-monitor or USB-mouse support, this is the way to go. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best bang for the buck out there, a great buy!
In my opinion, Linksys has done it again. I purchaced the EF4124 for my company, after suffering a massive outage due to the master switch freezing up. After recieving the Linksys, I was amazed by how much you get for the money. Everything on this switch is auto-detected. If used with the right NIC, you can get this baby up to 200 MB/sec in full duplex mode. I also love how it will detect cable type, so you can use a crossover cable with it, as well as any variety of networked devices. It will detect them all. The form factor is also nice. It is small enough so it won't be in the way, but it is large enough for people with big fingers, myself included. If you are in the market for a new switch for your office, or to network your home, this switch is the cream of the crop. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works with Dell Axim w/new drivers
Bought this from eBay. Works great with Dell Axim handheld PDA. I had a Netgear Compactflash Wireless card before, but it didn't work with my PDA. I called Netgear customer support, and they said the Netgear card was incompatible with Dell Axim's StrongARM processor. So I got the Linksys WCF12.

I read the reviews here and other websites, but it only got mediocre ratings. I also read in some cases that it didn't work with the Dell Axim. Well, it does after you download the latest driver software from Linksys' website (my driver version that I'm using is 1.0.7). Just follow the quick guide and setup shouldn't take more than 5 - 10 minutes. I think the problems some people may have with setting the CF up was that they didn't follow the instructions step by step: i.e., if you plug in the CF card into your PDA BEFORE setting up the driver, your PDA automatically configures the CF's settings (incorrectly I might add), which prevents it from working.

Very simple to set up. However, like some others mentioned before, the card does get pretty warm when its on. Sucks up battery life too pretty quickly, but that's to be expected from any CF wireless card.

I've been searching quite a few CF wireless cards before I got the Linksys WCF12, including Netgear's version and Linksys' older WCF11 card, but the WCF12 seems to work great with the Dell Axim.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Choice for both PPC2002 and laptop...!!
I bought this card more than 1 year ago
for my new(back than) Jornada 568.
I've enjoyed wireless internet access on my pocket pc since then...
Then this year, I bought a notebook computer... but this doesn't
have wireless network integrated so I needed a PCMCIA wireless
network card and I was to pay at least $30 to get one.

However,fortunately, I could get a CF-to-PCMCIA converter
only for $12 at Fry's Electronics. (I'm sure one can get one
for much cheaper, but I wanted to return it easily if it doesn't work). I also found a web site (http://www.ruwebit.net/article/84) where one can download a WinXP driver for this WCF12. Linksys doesn't support WinXP drivers, but someone modified D-link's driver to work with this WCF12.

The result was great!!
I was able to connect to the internet using this WCF12 on my
new laptop computer. The connection was always "Excellent" within my house.

I'm so happy!!!
One would have to pay well above $100 to get a CF wireless card

with PCMCIA converter. But, I only spent $72 ($60 for CF card and $12 for converter)

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work with Windows Mobile 2003
Card worked with PPC2002, but when I upgraded my Dell Axim X5 to Windows Mobile 2003, the card stopped working. Have followed all the advice on Linksys' website to no avail. Tech Support does not respond by email or telephone. Try another card with Windows Mobile 2003.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works well, but range not as good as other cards
I used the card with my Zaurus PDA.
The card works well, and comes with a useful case.
The range of the card was shorter than that of an
Ambicom card I later bought.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works great unless you are running pocket pc 2003
I had this card for over a year and it ran flawless with pocket pc 2002. If you are going to use this card for that software I recommend it 100% But...after uprading to pocket pc 2003 It has not worked since. I have installed the latest drivers for this card from the linksys site along with their beta drivers I found in a forum on pocket pc passion, none of them work. I have e-mailed linksys tech support several times without a response. I am getting a new card from someone else and you should too if you are buying it for a pocket pc 2003 version pda! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Switch
What every one has sed about it being a bad switch is all BS.

i just got mine today and iv put it to hard work and push it to its limits and its ran perfectly.

"When my daughter touched it at my direction she received first degree burns on her fingers" that is such a big lie, 1. if it got that hot the plastic case would have melted 2. it would not have past the UL test

"warning, this is loud" its not that loud at all, heck my laptop is louder than this switch.

the speed is amazing, i copy a 1.7gb file from one computer to the other in 40sec vs 10min on a 100mbps network as long as u have gigabit NICs

2-0 out of 5 stars Junk
In a nutshell:

2 units - 2 broken fans within a month - and these things can cook eggs while the fan is running. I want to replace the fan with something better than the crap they have, but they force me to RMA it since it's snapped together... not screwed. Which sucks because I wouldn't mind replacing this cheap crap-fan with something quieter & better quality.

3-0 out of 5 stars Replacement fan?
Yes, I can agree to people already mentioning THE NOISE this device produces. It was so unusual to hear such a loud sound from LinkSys product. I have several different LinkSys devices and all are quiet. This one is not. Beware! It is louder than most computers are nowadays. LinkSys - oh no, CISCO as now owner of LinkSys should be ashamed. EG008W is intended for HOME use, isn't it? Not for noisy server room but for our sweet home? Tell us how to get it less noisy. Much less! This current noise level is unacceptable (it sounds loudly as I am writing this commentary).

If anybody has found good replacement fan and/or knows procedure how to replace the noisy fan please write your advice here!

1-0 out of 5 stars Noisy and dangerous!
I have been looking for a low-priced gigabit switch for some time and when I found out about this little Linksys baby I thought, "Victory is mine!" My dream of a massive home surveillance system transmitting hundreds of megabytes of video streams of my wife and kids to my control room would at last come true.

As soon as I plugged it in the noise of the fan was deafening. I literally have to shout to be heard over it. To make matters worse, it runs ultra hot. When my daughter touched it at my direction she received first degree burns on her fingers. Now I know why it has such a loud fan.

In addition, I didn't notice any speed increase with file transfers, although I tried everything, even holding it upside down while a copy was in progress (this technique works great with my DLink 10/100 switch, believe it or not). I feel ripped off and am currently dealing with Linksys to get a refund or some free products out of them. We'll see how that goes.

4-0 out of 5 stars warning, this is loud
I got this installed last week and it works great. The only problem I have is that it runs pretty hot and its fan is loud. It is installed in the panel in the coat closet. With the panel door locked and coat closet closed, I can still hear the switch humming from the outside. Otherwise it works great! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent first-generation product!
I bought this unit as an alternative to configuring a separate computer, wired or wireless, as my entertainment center's gateway to digital media. It took me about an hour of troubleshooting to get it up and running (ad-hoc or infrastructure connection? what the heck does that mean to the average end user?) but once installed it stands on its own.

Pay close attention to the install rules. If you're not running WinXP, think twice. If you're not using XP's "zero configuration wireless" feature, you must attach the device wired for setup, then configure it for wireless.

It's a typical first-generation product. Does a great job at the two things it's good at -- displaying your pictures and playing your songs. The interfaces suck, both for the media manager utility (non-intuitive error messages that don't tell you what's wrong, it doesn't like dashes in filenames or directories, weird stuff like that) and for the unit itself (convoluted menus, could be much simpler and more intuitive, and lacks a few features I would have included in the first generation, such as fancy fades or wipes between pictures in slideshow mode, option of flashing the song title as the song changes if you're watching a slide show at the time, etc.) Actually that wish-list helps me to realize that the unit already does more than I expected. I set the "music" side to play "all songs" in "shuffle" mode, then I switch over to the "pictures" side and start a slide show. I didn't expect the music to keep playing, and was pleasantly surprised when it did. Music and pictures. Yay. The damn thing is now an emotion factory. I expect that future revisions will have more features and better interfaces. I'll be optimistic.

It's all about expectations, folks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Could not be happier
I have just completed getting this puppy up and working in less that 10 minutes. I configured it directly from the PC I intended to run the host service on. I had none of the software installation issues that other people had (I am running XP Professional Sp1) apart from the fact it seems to want to work only on channel 6 so I had to reconfigure my linksys wireless hub as I had it transmitting on channel 1. I then connected it up to my tv (using a Radio Shack A/V switch) and it works great.

No issues with playing my digital photos or music (mp3 320kbps). I love the ability to play a slideshow whilst listening to music. It is also a lot smaller than I expected which I am pleased with.

There are a few downsides:

It is a blit slow to power up up as it seems to be downloading a fair amount of info from the PC host.

It is slightly lacking in terms of format as it only works with mp3's and not AAC or OGG. Maybe there will be a driver/firmware upgrade to help with this. For me though as I have invested a lot of time (2 weeks) burning my CDs to 320kbps mp3s I am in no rush to burn them again.

Also it only works with 802.11b and not 802.11g. It does not seem to have any effect on my ability to use the wireless network.

When playing music there is no indication of track time.

I did think about either getting the Creative "Sound Blaster Wireless Music" music player (no picture capability) or upgrading my Tivo 1 to a Tivo 2 and spending the extra $100 on the HMO (kind of expensive considering I have Tivo). In the end I am glad I made this choice.

Update:

It recently stopped being able to register any new photo's. I contacted customer support and they asked me to send in a sample problem photo. So far I have had no response from my email. This has caused me to drop my rating.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works as Advertised
I had this product up and running in about 15 minutes. I am using the device wirelessly with WEP encryption. I did have to disable my firewall during the setup process. It was annoying to have to approve every action the software was taking during setup. Ran into a problem using it, once I went from using the Ethernet port connection to wireless, because I re-enabled my firewall. Over came this by adding a static IP address to the device and then allowing that address access through the firewall. The device does everything advertised. I even have it pulling music from 3 different PC's on my network. Upgrades I would recommend to Linksys include:
1. Optical output
2. Enhanced scrolling through folders
3. Display of album art
4. Ability to play video
5. Component video output
6. Upgrade to 802.11g

2-0 out of 5 stars i really like linksys, but:
i did not expect i would be writting this review for this product. my initial experience was very good and the product performed as advertised. Unfortunately some where along the line the software suffered the same fate as other customers. that is the client software crashes and refuses to run under xp pro. the online tech support is useless and the fact pages clearly are not addressing this problem. it makes the product useless and a nice paper weight. for background i have tried re-installing the software and .net many times to see if i could fix the problem (by the way the uninstaller also crashes so this is a manual process) with no success. i really like linksys products as they are doing some neat stuff but it is clear they are having some real technical support issues. make sure you can get a refund if you buy this product!

3-0 out of 5 stars When it works, it's great; the software needs improving
When it works, it's great. I won't duplicate all the positives and features mentioned by other reviewers.

As many other reviewers have said, the TV interface is basic, the remote is more complicated than it needs to be, the unit doesn't support Windows XP Internet Connection Firewall, and the email support, in my experience, is completely incompetent.

I also have problems with the software that runs on the PC. I have about 18,000 MP3s + JPEGs. When my machine reboots, the WMA11B's XWPCHostService.exe consumes 99% of my CPU for the first 10 minutes after boot. It also consumes over 100MB of memory.

Finally, XWPCHostService.exe watches for new files. When a new file appears, such as a new JPEG, it opens it to do some kind of cataloging. This unfortunately interferes with a photo downloading program I have that downloads an image and then rotates it if necessary. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars PS2 should tap the Online Gaming industry
Online gaming has been a VERY popular venue for the PC gamers and PS2 should definitely seriously look into integrating more online games (Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Quake 3, Diablo 2, for example, is HUGE!) . I purchased this USB network adaptor for my PS2 for $... and its a big step towards online gaming (I have 3 PC's and my PS2 in a network, sharing cable connection). PS2 is coming out with its hardware version, but its going to be the same, and I'm sure its going to cost a lot more. As for compatibility issues with games, you're sending the same packets online and the adaptor is only a form of medium and it won't make a difference. Speed will probably be a factor because I think using the USB port means it might just be 10Mbps (that's 10Megs Per Second, that's faster than 56K!!) instead of 100Mbps if connected directly in the expansion port as Sony plans to. So I'm not worried about games having problems with the Linksys USB NIC adaptor at all. I'm still waiting for PS2 titles with online capabilities so I hope Sony would wake up and smell the money, otherwise XBOX will take the opportunity.

4-0 out of 5 stars Needed a powered Hub to make it work on a Vaio Laptop
I needed a powered Hub to make this USB product work on a Sony Vaio Laptop. I was connected via a long 50-100 foot ethernet cable to my Linksys Router, and there evidently was not enough signal to drive it. I simply added a powered hub, into which I connected the laptop, and then it all worked. This USB-adapter is still a better soultion than using the one PC Card slot which was needed by my CD-ROM drive. When installing, I initially failed to insert the included floppy disk with the WINXP driver, and I had to re-install and remove the device a number of times before it worked.

5-0 out of 5 stars TiVo connectivity made simple
I just received my USB100TX and connected it directly to my TiVo Series 2 with the supplied USB A-B cable. It does *not* come with a CAT-5 UTP Cable, but I have plenty spare and hooked it up. As soon as it was wired to both the TiVo and a hub in my nearby wiring closet the link light was activated. I did not need any of the manuals or driver disks that came in the package.

Within minutes I'd configured my TiVo to recognize the network adapter and my Linksys BEFSR41 Firewall/Router had allocated it a DHCP address.

I immediately ran the test-connection and also forced a daily update.

Downloading schedules are super quick compared to the dialup option. Obviously new firmware updates will also be significantly quicker. Plus the phone line won't be tied up during the call.

I had previously tried a different USB/Ethernet adapter and my TiVo did not recognize it (D-Link USB-650) so beware of using that on a TiVo.

The Linksys USB100TX is the wired adaptor recommended by TiVo and it works perfectly, first time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to Sony's PS2 Network Adapter
Got this for about a quarter of what the official Sony PS2 Network Adapter goes for. Plugged it in and my PS2 recognized it by name immediately. Works flawlessly with EverQuest: Online Adventures Beta 3. Haven't tested it with any other games, 'cause EQ is all I have. Haven't tested it in any version of Windows yet, either. Only gripe is that the color doesn't match all my other Linksys equipment. May try the USB100M with my PS2 soon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works with PS2
I bought 3 other usb adaptors and none of them worked with SOCOM and Tony Hawk 3. This one works great. Let me know if other games work with it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Looking for LAN? Look no farther.
This piece of hardware is perfect for a medium size LAN party. Works incredibly well, and I had no problems setting it up. Rather than trying to hook up numerious hubs to routers and having to troubleshoot the connections and finding that faulty port, just plug directly into this baby. While it does require longer cat-5 cables, just make your own 100ft-ers, its the easiest thing to do. With the 16 port switch, you can plug directly into it, and then also connect your router if needed, and the occassional sattilite hub. Works great and makes those LAN parties a cinch. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible.. Terrible... Terrible....
This switch is garbage... (as is all linksys switches). We own this and many 5 and 8 port switches. Every single on when the power goes out must be manually powered off and powered back on. Linksys's terrible technical support says it is normal.... How is that normal? DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE... YOU WILL BE SORRY! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Effortless, Fast Home networking!!!
I have been running a Linux router/firewall/print server/backup file server for yonks, and i was satisfied with the performance my 56k dial-up was providing me, over my 10baseT network (a Surecom 8-port hub at the centre of it all). However, as soon as I updated to a 1Mbit/256Kbit ADSL line, the performance of the 10Mbit network started to just frustrate me. Whenever I wished to copy files from one drive to another, whatever downloads/bandwidth going on with the ADSL connection was sapped and strangled. Not happy.

Then I thought I'd make the plunge to a propper 100mbit switch. I haven't looked back. I researced into a number of 5-port switches from the likes of all companies (netgear, smc, belkin, linksys and one no-name 8-port) and i found that the best value for money was in the LinkSys.

The unit itself is solidly constructed and the quality of workmanship would be as good as the big guns in networking stuff (baystack, designated novell stuff etc...). Speed-wise, I have no complaints. Very very very rarely do i ever get a collision and it has no troubles at all transfering data between my 4 computers and my server.

The documentation is brilliant. Its easy to understand and in-depth, making its set up a walk in the park. Setup!! It is true plug and play. All i did is replace the connections from my old hub to my new switch, and whala! Going. No mess. No fuss.

I'd recommend this switch to anyone wanting to set-up a home network. It'd also have few complaints even in small office. Its dedicated uplink port means its not going to be superceded any time soon which is always reassuring in this world.

Out of 5 stars, I give it 10!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best solution for sharing CABLE/DSL on the net.
I bought this under the impression it would effortlessly share my @home cable connection between 3 computers. I can happily say it works awesome! This thing does everything! It' so simple to setup, and the switch is just an added bonus! Toss that Hub and make room for the SWITCH! The router has DHCP, IPSEC, IP Filtering, etc..etc.. I can truly recommened this as a MUST BUY! Unless you need more than 4 computers shared, then go with the 8 Port version that comes with QoS.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best experience for me
I bought this hub about a year ago and it ran without issue for 3/4 of a year thereafter, exhibiting no anomalies and overall being quite an efficient little hub.

That was until one port died a few months ago with a second one now dying.

This is the first linksys product I have purchased, and it has problems. Maybe it was from a bad batch, but a failure rate of 40% in less than a year is unacceptable. The general verdict about linksys is it either works for about a year or two or doesn't work at all. i.e. if you want reliability, don't buy them.

Trust me, I've config'd their BEFSR41 router and even port unblocking is a nightmare. That and getting supposedly ROUTABLE protocols working across all ports.

People only get this stuff because they know no better.

I have avoided the router and used a K6-2/450 as my "router," a system whose CPU is about 100x more powerful than the one in the linksys anyway. If you really really want a single-purpose router, get a real one, like the Cisco 2610XM. If that's out of your price range, your application probably doesn't call for a router.

1-0 out of 5 stars One of the 5 ports went dead, caused serious downtime
During a server room reorganization I added some new servers and plugged in our DSL router into a previously unused port. The port was half-dead in a weird, difficult to diagnose way. Machines in the IT area could still ping the DSL router and get Internet access, but everybody else's Internet and email went down for several hours - nobody could figure out what was wrong. Problem solved when the DSL router was plugged in to a different port again. We're getting rid of this hub fast.

2-0 out of 5 stars Two of my Linksys hubs are dead
I bought this one 1.5 year ago and it died after a year of use at home. I thought it's just one of few defected product bought by an unlucky guy. Plus, it is definatly not a complex product that will break easily, so I bought another one for the office 6 months ago. Well it died today with the same sympton - the light indicator can't even tell you which port is in use or not (you plug in to the 1st port but the fifth light will be on instead of the 1st one). Did the same thing happen to anyone? ... Read more
