Question about Hawking HWPS1UG Print Server

Cant find the Print Server IP

I set up the print server with success, but then restored the defaults. I then tried the setup again but it failed, so I went to the default IP and set up the print server from there. However, the print server doesnt work now. I have tried EVERYTHING and nothing seems to work. I cant locate the IP of the print server and I just dont know what to do. Please help me!! PS- you'll have to simplify your response- I have a limited knowledge on Networks, Routers and Print servers!

If you wish to reset the print server back to its default factory settings (resetting all information such as the password and IP address information), please follow these steps. Before you factory reset the print server, we recommend that you print a configuration page before resetting the print server.

Start the BRAdmin Professional utility, by clicking Start => All Programs or Programs => Brother Administrator Utilities => Brother BRAdmin Professional Utilities => BRAdmin Professional.
  1. From the main BRAdmin screen double click the appropriate printer.
  2. Enter the print server password (The default password is "access").
  3. Click the Control tab
  4. Click the Restore Factory Defaults button
  5. Click the OK button when you have read the warning message.

  2. From the main BRAdmin screen double click the appropriate machine.
  3. Enter the print server password (The default password is "access").
  4. Click Network Configuration tab, Control Panel and select Set Default.
  5. Click on Submit button.
  6. The print server will then reset back to its default values.

Via a web browser
Because web based management requires the TCP/IP protocol for communication, any reset option you see when managing the machine with a web browser, will not reset the IP address details that are set. If you wish to totally reset all the print server parameters we recommend you reset the print server by using the BRAdmin application.
To reset the print server (excluding TCP/IP parameters) follow these steps:
  1. Connect to the printer using a web browser.
  2. Click Network Configuration.
  3. Enter the print server password (the print server password is detailed in the user guide for the print server) if it's applicable.
  4. Click the Set Default link or Reset Print Server.
Via the control panel (only for network ready models)
  1. Make sure the machine is not operating, then disconnect all the cables from the machine (except power cable).
  2. Press the Menu or Menu/Set key on the control panel.
  3. Press up or down navigation key to select LAN or Network and press Set, Menu/Set or OK.
  4. Press up or down navigation key to select Factory Reset or Network Reset and press Set, Menu/Set or OK.
  5. Select Reset.
  6. Select Yes.
  7. The machine will re-start, re-connect cables once this is complete.

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)

My brother printer MFC-640CW has stopped taking comand to print documents from my computer, i can copy and scan, but not print . ink pads are full.


Make sure the status and configuration of the print server. Check following:

1 Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.

2 Print the Network Configuration List of the machine and check if the settings such as IP address settings
are correct for your network. The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP address.
Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the print server. And make sure that no other nodes on
the network have this IP address.

3 Verify that the print server is on your network as follows:
For Windows®
(1) Try pinging the print server from the host operating system command prompt with the command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the print server IP address (note that in some instances it can take up to two
minutes for the print server to load its IP address after setting the IP address).
(2) If a successful response is received, then proceed to Windows® 98/98SE/Me Peer-to-Peer print
(LPR) troubleshooting
. Otherwise, proceed to Step 4.

4 Reset the print server back to the default factory settings and try from the initial setup again. For
information how to reset to the default factory settings, see Restoring the network settings to factory in the manual.

Old IP address


You can reset the MarkNet X2000 to factory defaults - which includes resetting the IP address to 0.0.0.0 like this:

1. Press and hold the Test button until all four lights stay lit simultaneously, then release the Test button.
2. When #3 and #4 lights light simultaneously, press and release #1 (the Menu button).
3. When #3 lights press and release #1 (the Menu button).
4. At this point the X2000 print server has been restored to the factory default settings and should have an IP address of 0.0.0.0.

To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.

HawkinG Wireless 1-port USB Print Server doesn't recognize imageclass MF6530 So, I've been slowly building my company's network over the past week (It was very very poor.) So now I'm installing some devices to utilize the networks capabilities. So we have a printer that's a Canon imageclass MF6530. Freaking nice right? Well we don't even utilize 9/10ths of it's capabilities because all we use it for is a hard copier... Lame. So I got the cheapest network printer server that I could find. My mistake I suppose. I needed it to be wireless, and well this is what I got for a cheap price non the less (35 bucks, i knew that was a mistake but still bought it. lol) So I did all the neccessary steps listed in the manual (why a wireless print server doesn't have all the software needed to configure it build into the actual server, I do not know.) So after I found out that there is no way to config the printer server via network connection with out te use of te softwarer, i go ahead and install everything. Setup runs while the printer is connected, the PS (print server) is hooked to my router via long *** cord (wireless apparently can't be setup with out having it hooked to some sort of network device to communicate with it although it did state tat it was possible, yet I never was able to connect it.) Yay, I have a print server. Yet the program was faulty, froze, and I had to restart it and it didn't correctly setup the unit through the autostart install wizard. SOO I manually went into the programs and used there config utility, that didn't work. Went online, downloaded all the updated software (yet I didn't check the version difference between sfotware so I don't even know if it was an upgrade) but sure enough, everything started to work. I could access my print server efficiently, and configure it to the settings I wanted. NOW, the problem. It simply doesn't show my printer hooked to the USB device. So my trouble shoots: 1. Checked the printer, it's on, USB enabled, setup to be connected. 2. Checked all the cable connections (okay) 3. Checked the printer on a laptop to insure that the usb connection works properly, printer was recognized and installed. (I did a direct connection from printer to laptop via USB - no print server) 4. So then I added my dell printer to the mix (just purchased it 10 days ago), and wala it can see my DELL printer on my print server and allows me to install drivers. Cool, but it's already a wireless enabled printer, sooo useless for me. So that's were I am at. Anyone know of anything that I could try? I mean, it doesn't really allow me much ability to configure the unit or make any modifications to it enough to where I could get it to recognize my printer.
