I recently bought a Netgear WGPS606 ‘print server.’ It’s a nifty little device with a 4 port 100mbs ethernet switch, a wireless bridge, and an LPD print service. I needed each of those as part of reconfiguring my office space, and here it was in one little package.
It turned out to be something of a bear to configure, and tech support has not been very helpful. I finally got it all working. A bunch of technical details and gripes are after the break.
