If you bought a D-Link router because of its SharePort capability, until recently you would have been really disappointed.

Not a moment too soon, D-Link released a version of their SharePort software which actually works with printers.

SharePort is not a true network device. What it actually does is fool the computers into believing that the printer is directly connected to a USB port. Unfortunately, this means that only one computer can connect to a printer at any one time, but in a home scenario, would that be too much of a problem?

There is no doubt that it is a cheap solution, but cheap can work quite well.

You can find the software at most good D-Link router support websites.. 🙂
