The Bottom Line In theory, a print server can be useful, but the Linksys WPS54GU2 is not reliable enough for us to recommend. Netgear's FWG114P is a great all-in-one device for those planning to set up a home office. Though it works with only a smattering of printers and can be a chore to configure, this Wi-Fi print server gets the job done.
