Hi, I have the netgear connected to my home pc. I have other laptops enabled (all xp/vista-based) no probs. I added the new macbook address to my wireless access list, but the mac keeps asking for a password (which we don't have). I even went to the extent of setting up a WPA password, but the Macbook can still not connect. Where am I going wrong? I've not had any problem setting up any windows laptops, just the mac one. Thanks a lot.

I just found a way to enable the HP P1006 with a different print server
(Liveprint on Orange Livebox router). Perhaps this might work with the
WGPS606 wireless print server?
I set up the P1006 via the print server as instructed (I'm using Vista 32 Home Premium) but no test page would print.
BUT!! (with thanks to another another forum):
I selected printers, then right-clicked on the wireless printer I'd just installed and selected 'properties'.
Under the 'Ports' tab I deselected 'Enable bidirectional support'.
Hope this helps.
let me inform you that this printer is not compatible with any wireless
print server. The drawback is that it is not possible to network such
printers. A printer needs a steady flow of data, which is easily
accomplished when it is connected directly to a PC, but cannot be
guaranteed when the printer is connected via a LAN. Also, these
technologies require intensive handshaking between the driver and the
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print
commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's
memory and processing power."
Sorry I can't be more upbeat - but its probably useful to know that
someone at HP thinks the job's imposible - unless someone out there has
Use this tip for a check list : band, encryption, protocol (WPA, WEP?) Do you see your radio signal (SSID) Do you set an access list on your router? add your Vista PC MAC address to router list or disable access list control. Be sure to browse internet using a cable connection to router Try removing access security and check if connection performed Restore security protection and match router/pc settings,
ok your problem is the home edition for some reason there are features that are missing compared to all xp versions and i'm a little surpise with vista because of none problems but check all your network settings on all computers but start with the home edition the pproblem one make sure the sttings areset and there are a few things that might not be turned on that has to be check under the add and remove program components but sometimes this area might request the os disk to make changes and also check under network settings that the log on in the network properities is client for microsoft networks then goto internet protocol the address should be obtain auto and very important under internet protocol click properties then advance then at the top click the tab at the top that say options then you will see tcp/ip filter click properties and make all checks are enabled and permit all which is the common for this to be turn off and also i like to make windows the wireless default control under the card configure properties.. but again the home edtion has some features that are not available compared to xp pro which is the best xp os of xp versions....
The problem is not Vista, the problem is the Netgear. I have seen this happen time and time again with both Netgear (primarily) and D-Link (often). That's why I *only* recommend Linksys.
Worst case - go buy one from Walmart (yes, they have 'em). Hook it up and see the difference. If, somehow, the problem persists, take it back, and you've lost nothing. But I'd bet (as they say down here in the South "dollars to doughnuts") that's your problem :)
that is a network problem between the laptop and the PC. Look for your network settings and adjust them.
Use a tool like pctools to identify your network problems. Vista and Xp sometimes have a problem
