Two and a half minutes for each print job is certainly a long time to wait considering that you're only printing a Word document or an email. Some printers go into a standby mode when not in use in order to conserve power and once a print job is sent to it it then performs self checks and warms up before printing which can take some time. Does it still take two and half minutes to print a job directly after printing the first one?
May I suggest that you delete any old printers that you're not using
from the printers option in the control panel, make the Epson your default and check to see whether
you've got the latest version of the device driver for this printer
installed on both laptops. Also make sure that the printer is installed in a stand alone capacity rather than shared from one laptop to the other.
Based on your post description, I am assuming that: 1. You can connect to the Internet through your 2241 Neptoia modem; 2. You can access your WRT54G V8 Linksys Wireless router @ 192.168.1.1; 3. Both 1 & 2 above could be done through a wireless connection from your PC.
Connect everything as they are supposed to be wired (printer, Print Server, modem, router etc)
Pls try: a. Connect the Linksys wireless print server using a lan cable to the Linksys WRT54G Wireless AP/router. (Will tackle the wireless connection a bit later) b. Reset your print server; & c. Do a diagnostic print-out. Instructions for b & c are in page 4 of your manual.
You need to verify that: i. the Power indicator is contnously green ii. the Ethernet indicator is contnously green iii. the USB indicator is contnously green iv. the Wireless indicator may or may not be contnously green
Pls post back with the generated diagnostic print-out before we can proceed with the other steps.
Additionally, try installing the Epson Stylus Photo RX600 direct to one of the USB ports of your PC. Use the installer/driver CD that came with it. Try using it as a regular printer. This will tell us status of the printer.
Driver for Epson Stylus CX5500 Printer Please visit the above link from Epson Official Support and downloads. Select the Operating System you have on you Computer and click search to download the latest drivers.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Don't forget to convey your feedback CreativeTECH
what is the model number of your printer? if your setup cd is not detecting your printserver, try the ff:
-- while pc and printserver connected to the router and your printserver connected to your printer. try to reset the printserver for 30sec. Is it printing? If yes, do you see any IP address on the print out
-- If no, unplug the power for 5 seconds and plug the power back in of the printserver then try again to run the setup cd. you may also check your routers dhcp server table if its detecting the printserver
-- if printserver still not detected ty to connect printserver directly to your computer
-- search if you have bi admin utility on your setup cd and install it on your pc
-- manually assign static ip address on the printserver using the bi admin utility and on the pc
-- if successful, connect printserver and pc back to the router and check if you can ping the ip address of your printserver
