I Have a Dot Matrix printer installed and it was printing fine until the other day. its not printing anything at all. i can ping the printserver with a good response. i can even telnet into the print server and check the monitor status.

Even i keep sending the print job the BYTES SERVICED remains 0
I also turned the printer of which changes the PRINTER STATUS to Off-line.

I finally got my WGPS606 installed - unfortunately, it's just on one computer so far, but that computer is on the network and is not wired. Here are a few tips:
1. hold the reset button (little pinhole) until you see some action going on with the lights (I forget exactly what happened, but after a while there was a change) - this served to "reset" my WGPS606's IP Address, which I had changed during setup.
2. connect your computer to the server with an ethernet cable and type in http://192.168.0.102 (the default IP Address of the server)
3. login with the default username and password:
4. once logged in, you will see all of the WGPS606's information. At that point, you should be able to change the IP Address of the server to what you want it to be, but I think you can proceed to run the setup on the installation CD (or the installation program from the WGPS606's Netgear website) and it should be recognized on the wireless network.
In my case, I want to mention that when the initial setup failed for me, I used the MAC address on the back of the server. After steps 1-4, my server was finally on the wireless network by the installation program, however, the MAC address was 1 digit off from what was on the server. The MAC address on the back of the server was the PHYSICAL MAC address, whereas the WIRELESS MAC address was one digit higher (last set of numbers. For instance, on the back of the server, the MAC address ended in ":01" and I found out that this was the physical MAC address. The wireless MAC address was exactly the same, except the last 2 digits were ":02."
Another thing to note was that after the server was recognized, it told me to reserve a specific IP Address other than what I had previously set - I didn't realize that it chose it for you. Anyway, just keep that in mind. After this, everything worked like a charm - well, I have yet to set up the other computers to connect to the server, but at least I have one!
Hope this helps!
