Does anyone know of a print server that is compatible with the Canon
Pixma iP4000? I am using a Netgear DG834G router/modem and have tried
a Belkin print server which I found was compatible with my old Epson
830u (820 in the US). However it will not work with the Canon 4000.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

If you have just purchased the iP4000 why not exchange for the iP4000R which
has a built in wired/wireless NIC.

I would advice you to get a printserver that supports USB 2.0 HiSpeed
transfers. USB 1.1 print server may be too slow for fast printer with a lot
of small 2pl dots printer. This may manifest in breaks during printing
photos.

Is it April 1st already...?
:) 

Any respectable print server will have no problems pumping data through
for any printer, be it USB v1 or v2.

Having said that, some USB print servers are very slow, but they're the
"no-name" brands like IOGear, NetGear, etc. which are cheap products
that are not really designed with performance in mind. I've seen USB v2
print servers take several minutes to forward a page of text. On the
other hand, a good print server like the HP JetDirect line will not have
any noticeable performance impact at all.

You get what you pay for...not the version that's stamped on the box.

Hi and thanks for the replies.

I was not aware of the existence of the Pricom 6200U. If only it
wasn't so expensive it would be exactly what I was looking for.

True - and wrong.

Most USB print servers are one way only - while Canon sends various
diagnostics from the printer to the cpu, such as ink low.

You may connect the iPs to almost every printer, both parallel and USB.
But you will have to live without diagnostics and may have some higher
ink consumption for more frequent head cleaning.

I have a Trendnet TE100-P2U1P and a IP4000.
So far no good, the printer appear offline in the PSAdmin
and printer does not respond when trying to print.
I had a Canon bubblebutt 240 or so before the IP4000 and that worked
just fine on the Trendnet.

If someone has made a IP4000 work on a TE100-P2U1P, would be
nice to know.
