AirPrint Print Servers

4

Just curious, is anyone using any hardware printer servers to enable AirPrint for older printers or do you have experience with any? I’ve got a 10 year old HP laser I want to enable for AirPrint so my wife can print from her iPad. There are several software solutions out there. Ideally I’d like to find a physical print server in the $50-$80 range. Lantronix makes one, but it’s $200+ and geared for offices. I also found this one on Amazon by Hawking, but the reviews are not that great.

    This looks like spam to me. Please tell me this is not spam.

    The reason it looks like spam, is you haven't stated whether the interface you are using is USB, Parallel Port or Ethernet. If it's USB one cheaper option you might not have thought of is to replace your broadband router for one with a printer server usb port, i.e. Netgear. Again, without knowing what the full setup is, it's difficult to give proper options.

    Netgear have an Desktop Genie App which converts any older printer into an Airprint printer.

    It might be cheaper to just buy a new printer.
