    I recommend this product highly. I had some difficulty connecting the unit to my PC/Vista system, but had immediate success with my Macintosh system. Once I called tech support, I was able to properly find and select the right printer driver on my PC. It is wonderful to be able to send documents to the same printer from both my Mac and PC and not have to go over and either manually select the printer or change cables. This product is very solid without odd idiosyncrasies to deal with.

    Not fully plug and play, December 10, 2009

    This review is from: IOGEAR 2-Port USB 2.0 Printer Auto Sharing Switch GUB211 (Black) (Personal Computers)

    The device works nicely BUT installation required installing full drivers for my printer on two computers, and THEN installing the device’s drivers on both computers. After this whole process, I still need to run a program supplied by IOGear every time I need to switch the printer to the other computer.

    This is definitely not a KVM level device, and the documentation implied that no end user action or installation are necessary (plug and play).

    It’s a small part that works awesome. If you only have two CPU’s sharing one printer this is it. The software is simple! It usually just runs in the background. On my laptop, I have it set up so it does not start automatically. Instead, i just click the icon when i want to print, the box comes up, click the “OK” button and print. Then I exit the program and again, it’s no longer running in the background.

  4. You need a wireless router and,wireless network cards for the lappys

  5. I already answered such question. Check my answered questions on my answers profile. It’s fully detailed!

  6. Get a Linksys wireless router. Best Buy, Sam’s, Circuit City or Walmart.

    They are easy to install, give you a hardware firewall & work great.

  7. Your laptops are already wireless. That makes things easier.

    Okay, then you just need a wireless router. I would recommend 802.11g- backwards compatible with the earlier standard (802.11b).

    The one I have, for a large home, has what is called MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output). It is more expensive but the range & speed are worth the price for me.

    Anyhow, my wireless router is the DI-634M:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833127173

    It’s a great router. You can buy something less expensive, but this has features for internet phone (if you add that later) and has superior range for very large homes or ones that are not very condusive to wireless signal.

    Anyhow, you just hook the cable modem up to the WAN port on the router. Hook up your computer to one of the other ports.

    Now, unplug power from your cable modem and wait one minute. Plug it back in. 1 minute after you plug the cable modem back in, plug in power for the router.

    And that’s it for the wireless router!

    Now, for a wireless printer, you have a few options:
    A) Hook it up to your desktop and share it through Windows (I do this).
    Advantages: Cheap, no extra hardware. Works well.
    Disadvantages: Computer that it is plugged into must be on whenever you want to print.

    B) Get a wired print sever and plug it in to the router.
    Advantages: Pretty cheap, usually easily configured. Can print while the desktop is off.
    Disadvantages: Certain printers incompatible and printer must still be near desktop.

    I would go for the latter. The only reason I didn’t is because no manufacturer supports my printer. (HP Photosmart 7550).

    Now, you’ll have to pick out a print server yourself, unless you can give us a model.

    Now, you pretty much just have to plug the print server into the router and the printer into the print server. Power up, run the CD, and you should be well off!

    If you need more help, edit your post. If you found my answer helpful, let me know and pick it!

  8. Add a wireless router with a 4 wired port built in hubswitch, and a built in print server.
    Make sure you order the printer port you need, parallel or USB.
