Question about Levelone ServCon WPS-9122 (WPS9122) Print Server

Level One Print Server not serving

I have an Epson CX6600 all-in-one-printer that I want to share with several computers wirelessly. I have installed the Level One WPS-9122 wireless printer router on my Windows XP desktop and I have installed it on my Windows Vista Home Premium desktop. The install does not find a print server in either O/S. I connected the hard-wire lan cable to the computer and the router and the usb cable from the printer to the router.

    Not running Windows NT

  • mrgiles746 Jan 18, 2009

    How do I find and Open the printer's embedded Web server (EWS). I am using Windows Vista Home Premium with a Epson CX6600 All-In-One printer connected by USB to either the desktop computer or the Level One Printer Router.

  • mrgiles746 Jan 18, 2009

    The Epson CX6600 is not a wioreless printer. It can only be connected by USB. I have the USB from the printer connected to the Level One print router and a lan cable connected to the Level One router and the desktop.

    Printer works fine when directly connected to the computer via USB. The problem is getting the printer to work with the Level One WPD-9122 Printer Router.

  • mrgiles746 Jan 18, 2009

    I do not have an HP printer or a Cannon Printer. I have an Epson CX6600 All-In-One Printer. I am trying to use the Level One WPS-9122 Printer Router to operate the printer wirelessly and access it from multiple pcs.

  • mrgiles746 Jan 18, 2009

    This so0lution will not work with my Epson CX6600. The Epson CX6600 is a USB ONLY connection.

This is the sort of thing you are better off buying a Live Chat from FixYa for and the setup requires a lot of feedback to the tech about what you are seeing and then being led through the setup. Using this for of support is going to get you good and dumb answers and you may not know which is which.

If you wan to continue with this see below, otherwise abandon this Premium Question ask for your money back, that part is easy and then go for a Live Chat session. Only Network Gurus will get the notification you need Live Chat help.

So, maybe to start over is good?

Disconnect the ethernet cable and the USB cable, uninstall the printer software.

Install the printer software again and when IT TELLS YOU to, attach the USB cable, otherwise the installation will fail.

Now, attach the USB cable to the print server and the ethernet cable to the PC. At the back of the router are two different plug IDs. One is an uplink and the others numbered 0-4 or 1-4 attach the PC to one of the numbered ports, choose 2 to be safe. The uplink port will be used for a DSL Modem this is sometimes shared with port 1.

Still, in my opinion, you have a poor hardware choice. All you need is a network adapter for the printer. I wouldn't use a router on a printer server, not for your needs.

There is a RESET button recessed on the back of the router. Use a pen and hold the button is for a full 20 seconds. Use a watch to do this. This will resett everything to factory settings. Then you can start all over again.

If you can't get it or figure it out, see if you can get your money back as what you have is not a smart appliance. Choose another printer server or network adapter would be better.

First thing to check here are the connection of the printer to the printer server and then print server to the router, then check the lights on the print server so we can make sure we have a good connection. After that do a test print from the print server by pressing the reset button of the print server for 5 minutes that will also determine if the printer is compatible with the print server that you have,,,,i

Instead of connecting printer to the router .u directly connect the printer and pc with a usb wire without any mediator between printer and pc.it should work properly.

Not sure if HP asked you to do this. It is from thier website. Looks like you may have to hardwire the printer to a computer to fix the ip address.

Problems setting up wireless communication

If you cannot communicate with the printer after completing the software installation and removing the network cable, then one or more of the following network settings in the printer might be wrong:
o

Network name (SSID)
o

Communication mode (infrastructure or ad hoc)
o

Channel (ad hoc networks only)
o

Security settings (such as Authentication Type, and Encryption)

Follow these steps to correct the printer's network settings:
1.

Connect the printer to your network with a network cable or to the computer using the cross cable included with the printer.
2.

Open the printer's embedded Web server (EWS).
3.

Click the Networking tab, and then click Wireless (802.11) in the left pane.
4.

Use the Wireless Setup wizard on the Wireless Setup tab to change the printer's settings to match the settings of the network.
5.

Close the printer's EWS, then disconnect the network cable from the printer.


Good Luck

    there's a problem on the server on it,, make sure the server is correct,,

    Wireless print servers offer the following advantages:




    • Allows printers to be conveniently located anywhere within wireless network range, not tied to the location of computers

    • Does not require a computer be always turned on in order to print

    • Does not require a computer to manage all print jobs, that can bog down its performance

    • Allows administrators to change computer names and other settings without having to re-configure the network printing settings.

Hi Mr Giles,

If you click on your Network icon in the bottom right hand corner of your Vista Desktop, and click Network and Sharing Center, is Printer sharing enabled?

Use the Deskjet printer embedded Web server (EWS) to do the following:

  • Adjusting network configuration
  • Configuring network security
  • Restricting access to Configuration pages
  • Checking printer status and estimated ink levels
  • Viewing network statistics
  • Linking to HP's Web site for support
  • Ordering supplies Do the following two items before opening the EWS:
    • Make sure that the printer and the computer are powered on and connected to the network. To access canon support through the EWS, the computer must be connected to the Internet.
    • Print a Network Configuration page. Note the IP address and the URL of the printer. To print a Network Configuration page, press the Network button while the printer is turned on and idle.
    If the printer has just been connected to a network, it may take a few minutes for the printer to determine its network settings. Wait a few minutes before printing the Network Configuration page in order for the network settings data to be valid. Follow these steps to open the printer's EWS:
    1. Open an Internet browser. Use Internet Explorer 5.0 and higher or Netscape 4.75 and higher.
    2. Enter the URL of the printer in the address box, and then press Enter .to ghet the exact information just click the link below its for hp printer but you can follow on your canon printer. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00202841&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=467982&rule=14

I cannot connect to my 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless (3crwps10075-us) Print Server 3crwps10075


Check you firewalls. Sometimes you will have to allow certain mac addresses or certain ip addresses (may be less secure than the mac address), then change sharing level to full, before things begin to work.

Please post back and let me know if this helps!

Linksys wireless prnt server


Hi,

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.

Good luck and kind regards.

In our home office we have two HP laptops, both running Windows XP and Office 2007. We connect to our work group through a wireless network. Our Epson TX610FW printer is connected to the wireless router....


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.

My print server is working with a Epson DX4400. It is all setup correctly (according to Netgear) but when I print wirelessly, it only prints half the test page and then the printer stops with an error...


U need to manually add the Printer ports ..

Install the printer driver to the computer first and make sure that we are able to print directly. Follow the steps below after putting the printer and computer back to your network.
  1. Click on Start, then Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes. Right click on the Printer and select Properties.
  2. On the printer properties window, select Ports tab and click on Add Port.
  3. Select Standard TCP/IP Port and click on New Port
  4. This will bring the Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard, click Next
  5. In the field for Printer Name or IP Address, type the IP address of the print server and click Next
  6. Select Custom and click Settings button
  7. Under Protocol field, select LPR. For Queue Name, type P1 depending on what print server port is the printer connected to.
  8. Click Ok, then Next, and Finish.
And this will resolve the issue

Print Server Advice, Please!


I suggest that you just buy an HP printer that supports wireless or ethernet so it can just get itself an IP address and will not rely on any Windows Network Shares to let you print. A print server will be over the top for just one printer.

Unable to print


I have had the same problem. 2 computers had been able to print fine then 1 stopped (other was still fine). I use Network Magic as well- noticed that the IP address for the print server was different on each computer.
I deleted the 2 printers on the computer that could not communicate to the server, logged into the server and set its IP address to static at the address listed on the computer that could print. Next ran the set up for the printers on the problem computer again.
Test pages now printed out fine.

Installation assistant cannot detect print server


Results of attempting to connect the Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 and the Canon MF6550 multifunction laser printer. I was on the phone for several hours last evening (March 9, until about midnight EDT) with a very competent support agent from Netgear (actually in the Philippines). The Netgear setup Wizard software would not connect the Print Server to my Verizon FiOS wireless G router automatically, so the Netgear support agent walked me through it manually. The Print Server connected that way, for sure. Then we manually attempted to connect the Print Server to my Canon MF6550 and subsequently, my HP 932C Deskjet. Neither printer is on the WGPS606 compatible list, nor is either on the known incompatible list. Now we know - both printers are INCOMPATIBLE with the Netgear WGPS606. I bought both the Netgear Print Server and the Canon MF6550 at Staples on Sat., March 8, 2008, based upon the assurance from Staples staff that it would all work. The question now is whether ANY brand of wireless Print Server will work with the Canon MF6550, or do I have to return this printer and get either a Canon with built in networking (ethernet or wireless) or switch to the Brother equivalent (MFC 8870DW). If I get a (multi-function) printer with built-in Ethernet networking, does the Ethernet capability bypass the USB incompatibility problem, or will the problem remain?

Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 won't install correctly


I finally got my WGPS606 installed - unfortunately, it's just on one computer so far, but that computer is on the network and is not wired. Here are a few tips:

1. hold the reset button (little pinhole) until you see some action going on with the lights (I forget exactly what happened, but after a while there was a change) - this served to "reset" my WGPS606's IP Address, which I had changed during setup.

2. connect your computer to the server with an ethernet cable and type in http://192.168.0.102 (the default IP Address of the server)

3. login with the default username and password:
username: admin
password: password

4. once logged in, you will see all of the WGPS606's information. At that point, you should be able to change the IP Address of the server to what you want it to be, but I think you can proceed to run the setup on the installation CD (or the installation program from the WGPS606's Netgear website) and it should be recognized on the wireless network.

In my case, I want to mention that when the initial setup failed for me, I used the MAC address on the back of the server. After steps 1-4, my server was finally on the wireless network by the installation program, however, the MAC address was 1 digit off from what was on the server. The MAC address on the back of the server was the PHYSICAL MAC address, whereas the WIRELESS MAC address was one digit higher (last set of numbers. For instance, on the back of the server, the MAC address ended in ":01" and I found out that this was the physical MAC address. The wireless MAC address was exactly the same, except the last 2 digits were ":02."

Another thing to note was that after the server was recognized, it told me to reserve a specific IP Address other than what I had previously set - I didn't realize that it chose it for you. Anyway, just keep that in mind. After this, everything worked like a charm - well, I have yet to set up the other computers to connect to the server, but at least I have one!

Hope this helps!
