Re: Have print server, was working great now nothing!!
when you uninstall and reinstall a printer on the network you have to let windows attempt to detect it again. i would recommend opening the control panel>printers and deleting the one you want to use. then click on add a printer and allow windows to detect a printer on your network.

New Part Number is J7934A it is newer version and costs about $75.00 . To test the jet direct, press menu and then information, print the configuration page, if more then 1 sheet comes out 1 will be for the jet direct if this prints there is nothing wrong with the Jet Direct. however if you are printing through the network and you are getting any type of special characters like $%^ it is most likely a driver issue, uninstall the printer and reinstall using PCL 6. You can go to HP's wesite for driver support. Hope this helps.
With great difficulty.... Seriously though, you MUST get the driver for each operating system, Install each Driver on each machine, and then simply connect each computer to the printer as a "Networked" printer. I may be efficacious, to have all drivers on every PC, all in same Directory so that each is available to each other...Right ALL machines, must be in same WORKGROUP, ALL have a password, The printer MUST have a name, Install the drivers as Administrator.
This was more hastle than it was worth. So I bought a new print server (twice), neither worked either. Might be the router, but after spending 2 hours on the phone with INDIA, I said forget it and took it back, bought a parallel card and gonna hook it up with a cable!
I solved this problem with windows xp but have yet to solve it with windows 7. what worked for me is hooking up the hp print server to my network switch and to the 2510. Then I installed the 2510 driver using the samsung exe and choosing NO when it asked about installing the driver without the the printer attached. The NO choice continues and installs the driver. Then run the HP printer wizard choose drivers on this computer when you get to that spot. Then choose the 2510 driver and finish up. You may now have 2 2510 installations and may need to delete the default one under printers and set the other as default. This worked on 3 different xp machines for me
The direction of the GMFPSU01C will never tell you that you need to create another printer driver. Because, once you install the MFP Utility of this print server, you will have an automatic Copy1 icon of your printer once you successfully, detected the print server and once you successfully connected to the Printer.
Since, the computer is not detected the printer on the network, here are the things that you may do:
1. Make sure that the printer driver is properly installed in the computer. and make sure that the printer is working when directly connected to the computer.
2. If you can't detect the printer, disable your FireWall or any anti-virus program that's running in your computer.
3. Uninstall/reinstall the MFP Utility. If the CD is not working correctly, use the driver from the Website. Here's the link: http://iogear.com/support/dm/driver/GMFPSU01#display
