Linksys print server tries to do it all

Linksys' new multifunction server supports printers that fax, scan and copy.


Though far from the most exciting thing you'll see at a show like CES, small "backbone" devices like print servers are an indispensable part of a home or small office. At CES 2007 today, Linksys announced the immediate availability of its WPSM54G print server, which distinguishes itself by supporting multifunction printers that fax, scan and copy. A print server takes on the overhead required to network a USB printer, freeing your PC from having to be on 24/7. Not all printers are supported, though; you can find a list of devices supported by the WPSM54G at the Linksys site. It's available now for $120.
