    My Canon LBP5000 color laser printer can't work with it.

    Are there any firmware updates that enable compatibility with those new fangled printers that are hell-bent on communicating with the PC while printing?

    I got this print server about 2 hours ago, and the store don't accept returns.

    Yea, I should have done my research before buying one.....

    Is this a "Win Only" printer? I had a different pserver that wouldn't work with a newish Lexmark. It isn't a pserver problem if the printer is a windoze only device. First thing to check is a status on the pserver, does it show that port "Online"? Mine didn't until I plugged in a normal printer.

    the web-based admin says it's offline.

    It has drivers for OS X though.
