D-Link's DPR-1260 aims to take care of all of your wireless printing and scanning needs

IOGEAR announced its GMFPSU01 multi-function wireless USB print server back in February of this year, and the reviews have been mixed. There have been many compatibility issue complaints, problems with printing speed and some cases where the unit just wouldn't work at all. NewEgg, who was one of the first retailers to carry the unit, doesn't even stock the GMFPSU01 anymore. I personally even bought one to use with my Canon MP780. Between constantly rebooting the server, flaky scanning, and prints that would never finish, the unit is now sitting collecting dust in my garage.

That being said, let's see if D-Link has some better luck with its wireless multi-function USB print server, the RangeBooster G DPR-1260. The DPR-1260 has not just one, but four USB ports and supports printing and scanning over a wireless network. The device also provides wireless connectivity for any Ethernet based device which is a nice touch.

The DPR-1260 features an automatic configuration wizard which allows you to plug in your printer into an available USB port and get started quickly with your day-to-day multi-function needs. The DPR-1260 is USB 2.0 device, but it also backwards compatible with USB 1.0 and USB 1.1 printers as well.

The D-Link RangeBooster G Multifunction Print Server has a MSRP of $119.99 and is available now. Let's just hope that D-Link has learned from IOGEAR's first stab at a wireless multi-function print server.
