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

11 Answers

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.

    Printer Sharing is turned on on my Vista desktop

  • mrgiles746 Jan 18, 2009

    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.

    No working solution at this time. it's 2AM and I'm head to bed.

    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.

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

How do i make my computer except my epson nx110


What OS are you using? Drivers and software are available here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=128284&prodoid=63084353&infoType=Downloads&platform=All

Did you install the software before connecting the printer? If you didn't, uninstall the OS basic driver, unplug the data cable and install the appropriate one from the above site. Then reconnect when prompted.

Try a new data cable (scanners can be extremely sensitive to cable problems but a really bad cable will not let the printer talk to the computer at all). Make sure the cable is 6' long or shorter. If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. Check that a known working device works in the USB port. Make sure that the USB ports are active and not powered down for energy savings or security. (In Windows the first is part of the Advanced Settings from the Screen Saver set up control panel; the second is in the Device Manager.)

Is the computer with the problem connected directly to the printer or is another computer serving as a print server? If it is the latter, make sure that the firewall isn't blocking access. Make sure that the printer is a shared device (Devices and Printers (or Printers and Faxes), right click on the printer's icon and choose Properties. Then adjust the Sharing properties on the host computer.

I hope this helps.
