Question about Zonet (ZPS1000) Print Server

Can't connect my Linksys WRT54GS router to zonet zps1000

I have just recently installed a Linksys WRT54GS router to my home network replacing an old U-S Robotics router. I was fortunate to have had the IT guy from my former place of employment over to help me set that U-S Robotics system up and he made everything work. Unfortunately for me, I had to do the latest router setup on my own.
The new network is working fine but the problem I have is that I cannot seem to get the Zonet ZPS 1000 print server to work which renders my printer useless to the home network. I have two desktop XP PCs, one laptop running Windows 2000 and one Mac running OS 10.5. My primary computer is one of the XP desktops.
I will admit I am technically challenged and really looking. I was trying to find some help and for the life of me I cannot even find "system preferences" on my XP.
Please, can somebody give me some guidance.

    I have very little paperwork but I do have a CD that does not have the name "Zonet" but does have the name "USB Print Server". No where on this can I find the name "Zonet" . I started to go to the Zonet web site but was received a warning that my computer could be attacked at that site.
    When you mention the "gateway", are you talking about a number?
    Also, if I take the ethernet cable that plugs into the Zonet device, do I just plug it into the internet connection on the back of my computer to configure it.
    I'm sorry to ask such stupid questions and have such lame answers but perhaps this is why 52 year old men shouldn't mess with computers and networks and such.
    regards

    I did have one other question for you Mr. Bubbabear64. I went to the link that you posted and a screen appeared warning me that this was a "reported attack site" Should I still go there. I have a good virus filter and try to keep my computer cleaned regularly of adware.
    Thanks again for all your advice.

    Do you have the installation CD to your print server?



    You will need to take it off the network and plug it into a a computer to set it up.



    What is the gateway of your network?

The gateway would be the address that your router uses.

You would plug the print server into the back of the computer using the ethernet line.

    This link didn't cause a problem for me. It looked like a legitimate website as long as you use the index.asp at the end of the link.

Download installation cd linksys wrt54gs


You could install the Linksys WRT54GS without any CD.

You could use the Linksys EasyLink Advisor to scan your network for the Linksys WRT54GS.

The Default IP-address is 192.168.1.1 so you should be able to connect to the Linksys with your Webbrowser when you do a factory reset of the Linksys.

ZPS2102, ZPW1000, ZPS1000 :: Trouble shooting tips for finding the print server using the utility

supporting troubleshooting links
? A: Please check the connection link light.

Temporarily disable all firewalls on your system even the Windows XP firewall
(for instruction to disable XP firewall, please go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283673 )

Power cycle the print sever by unplug the power at the back (10 second).
The print server default IP is 192.168.5.1
Set the computer which has the print server utility installed to have an IP of 192.168.5.2

(Test ping the print server / 192.168.5.1 --
If print server is respond to ping, using web browser with the address of 192.168.5.1 will also beable to configure the print server)

Run the utility/hit the refresh button to find the print server again.
The CD has two installation methods:
1. The Auto run will run the utility.
2. By manually install the program into your system. (Browse CD to the folder: manual installation.)
It is recommended to use the 2nd method and run the PSAdmin utility from the system's programs after the installation is completed.
If it still could not find the print server, direct connect your computer to the print server using cross over cable and run the utility again to find the print server.
When it finds the print server, change the print server IP(192.168.5.1) to a unique static IP your router can accept. Put the print server back to the network, change back your computer's IP accordingly and try ping the print server with the new IP or run the utility again.

For wireless print server, it is recommended to use Ad-hoc connection from a wireless computer to connect to the print server first. (follow the Quick Installation Guide booklet that came with the box on page 8)

Cannot get a second computer on my secure wireless network


Have you set the properties on the second computer to match the security expected by the router? Since one computer works I would compare the settings for the network connection and set the second computer to the same.

Router not connecting


The problem here is that the WRT54GS is an old model, so naturally the installation CD is also old. This is especially a problem if you are running Vista. I ran into the same problem when I was installing my wireless card; my computer would detect it on boot up, but when I installed the drivers from the CD, it said the card wasn't plugged in.

The solution would be to download the lastest installation and driver files from the LinkSys website and use those instead of the installation CD that came with it. You may have to hunt for it, as some companies would rather push new products than update older ones, but since the router is still on the market, they should have the updated drivers and installation files.

How to contact sys-admin(wiz)


Plug the print server in the back of your computer using the ethernet port. Insert the setup cd into the same computer. Assign an IP address for you print server using 10.10.10.xxx. xxx=available address number on your network. If it requires the gateway address use 10.10.10.1 if that is the correct address of your Linksys router.

You can verify the correct router address from your computer. Make sure your computer is connected to the network (not the print server) and go into the control panel. Select Network Connections. Move the mouse to you network card. Press the right mouse button and select status. The gateway address is your router address.

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54GS (EU/LA/UK))


I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.
