Features & Benefits

Secure, Economical, High-Speed Wireless and Wired Print Sharing

Printer sharing is one of the most common uses for a small business network. With the 3Com® OfficeConnect® Wireless 54Mbps 11g Print Server, you can share a network printer between wired and wireless users no matter where they are located and free up a PC you may have acting as a print server to do more useful work. The compact print server allows you to connect a USB printer directly to the network through a high-speed 54 Mbps 802.11g wireless or 10/100 Ethernet connection for fast processing of even large multimedia files.

The versatile wireless print server also gives you the flexibility to place a printer in a convenient location, while eliminating the cost of network cabling. It supports multiple wired and wireless PC and notebook users running a variety of popular operating systems, such as Windows, Macintosh, Unix, and Linux. The print server’s USB 2.0 port supports the latest high-speed connections for faster throughput and is compatible with USB 1.1/1.0 printers. Wireless communication can be configured to operate in infrastructure mode through an access point for larger mixed wired-wireless LANs, or in ad hoc mode using direct peer-to-peer connections for home and small office environments. A familiar Web browser interface and helpful Setup Wizard make installation and configuration an easy task.

You can't have a secure network without a secure print server. The 3Com wireless print server offers advanced Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) as well as basic Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption to effectively protect your wireless network.
