Wireless USB print server?

I'm trying to find a wireless USB print server that just WORKS. I tried a TRENDNet TEW-MFP1 It's a piece of junk that requires you to use their software. I want something like an old JetDirect... I can point any printer under any OS to a raw TCP/IP port, and the print jobs come out.

I don't know if a simple solution like that exits, but you can check THIS.

Gee, thanks for that thoughtful answer! I NEVER would have thought of just searching for something! Now, how did I find what I've got now... magic, must be magic. Thanks a lot. I hope you didn't spend too much of your valuable time responding.

Yes I was being flippant. I've not seen a wireless USB print server mentioned here before. I have requested help, we have a few IT networks people here.

Between what devices are you trying to use this service?

Be specific!
Your thread starter was lacking of information that we need, all i know is you tried a third-party program and you think it's crap.

We need Devices and operating system's (OS) and how many including USB dongles.
  • What type of hardware are you using now?
  • What programs are you trying to use this service with?
  • What would you like to see, what are your goals?
  • Why are you still using Firefox 22.0?
  • Why are you not using an antivirus program?
  • Is the rest of your system and its programs woefully lacking in updates?

Hi there,

In addition.....Is your printer wired and do not have Wi-Fi capability? What's the make and model of your printer. For not, check out this Bluetooth wireless USB print server.
