U.S. Robotics Provides Network Solution with Wireless Print Server
Access Leader Expands Home and Small Office Product Line
Chicago (August 1, 2005)– U.S. Robotics announced shipment of its Wireless USB Print Server today, expanding the company’s already extensive line of home and office networking solutions. A leader in network access delivering the highest quality and most innovative products available, U.S. Robotics is committed to providing home, home office, and small- and medium-sized businesses with the products needed to thrive, compete, and succeed.
The Wireless USB Print Server (USR5436) will transform any USB printer* into a shared resource for all network users. By wirelessly networking a printer, remote printing becomes available to all networked employees, including those off-site; specialized printers become more accessible; the overall number of printers decreases; and work space becomes free of wire clutter.
“The Wireless USB Print Server is an asset not only to businesses, but also to home users as well,” says Jim Thomsen, senior product manager. “It is designed to maximize printer efficiency making hassle-free and affordable printer sharing available to all.”
The USR5436 takes advantage of wireless connectivity with 54 Mbps performance. It is compatible with many USB printers, all 802.11b and g networks, and supports Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP, Macintosh (9.x or higher), and Linux operating systems. It is easily installed and managed through an easy-to-use HTML wizard or the Windows Administrative Tool. Variable address options using DHCP Client or Static-IP assignment support make the Wireless USB Print Server a hands-off printer sharing solution. Additionally, the USR5436 takes advantage of sophisticated security measures to ensure document privacy and network safety, including 64/128-bit WEP encryption, Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK), and Open/Shared authentication support.
Available in August at major computer and electronics retailers, MSRP for the USR5436 is $99.99.
*USR5436 works with any USB printer that supports a page description language (i.e. PostScript, PCL, etc.) On supported printers, only the print function can be shared.
