You in a way can but u need to buy a adapter that goes into your modem. apart from that it is possible to sign it into one computer and have it on "share" so that other computers on the same network can still print but for this you need to keep that computer it's connected to on for long periods of time or when you need to use the printer

Is this dymo twin turbo labelwriter enabled to connect wirelessly


You can network the labelwriter using the Dymo Network Print Server device, but this is not wireless.

It is possible to connect using 3rd party print servers, but this can be pretty hit and miss. It's possible you would find a 3rd party wireless print server that would work with a labelwriter, but you may have a problem with the twin model - the dymo print server recognises that there are (effetively) 2 printers in one machine, where-as a many 3rd party servers do not.

So it's possible you could find a wireless server for it but it may not allow you to use both rolls...

I have a Linksys WPS54GU2 printserver connected to an Epson CX7800 printer on my home network. When I wirelessly print a multi-page document, the last page does not finish printing and does not eject from...


I'm not sure how you have your server set up, but when I did the initial setup I had to add my printer as a TCP/IP port.
See this link for instructions on how to do that: http://homecommunity.cisco.com/t5/Print-Servers/Installation-of-WPS54G-Print-Server-for-Windows-7/m-p/362651?comm_cc=HSus&comm_lang=en#M6440
The hanging on the last page happens if you don't have LPR byte counting enabled. Go find your printer in the devices and right click. Go to "Printer Properties", then the ports tab. Click "Configure Port", then in the popup dialogue make sure that LPR Byte Counting Enabled is checked.

Trying to install HP 2101nw wirelss print server but get message can't find the print server on the wirless network form this machine. I am trying to set this up stand alone , not via a router


The server maybe enabled but you need to navigate on the printer and select a wireless network you want to connect to (just like you would when you connect a computer to a wireless netowrk). Once the printer is connected to the wireless network. try it again

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Wireless print server
· USB printer
· Ethernet cable
· Computer
1. Step 1
Obtain a wireless print server that is compatible with both your wireless network and your printer. While the printer’s documentation may not explicitly say that it is compatible with a print sever, many are compatible, and this can be verified by checking the website of the print server’s manufacturer. If you have a multifunction printer, only the print function will work with most wireless print servers, though a few have recently added support for scanning and the printer’s other functions.
Step 2 Read all of the documentation that came with the wireless print server. The manual will detail the specifics of the installation routine.
Step 3 Connect the printer to the wireless print server via the USB cable. Connect the print server’s Ac adapter and turn the unit on.
Step 4 Connect an Ethernet cable between the wireless print server and your computer. This will be used for the initial setup only.
Step 5 Insert the CD supplied with the print server into your CD-Rom drive. Start the software if it does not start automatically. The application will walk you through the installation process, which includes setting the unit’s IP address, setting an access password, configuring it to connect to the wireless network, installing the drivers that allow the print server to use the printer and installing the print drivers on your computers.
Step 6 Choose how your print server will be addressed. Most units are set up to use dynamic addressing by default, which means that your wireless router will assign an IP address to it. This allows the server to be easily installed on the network, but it also means that the IP address of the printer may change over time. The other option is to assign a static IP address to your print server. This option is more reliable, because the print server will always use the same IP address, making it easier for the computers to find the printer and easier to access the print server’s online configuration application. If your router has the IP address of 192.168.0.1, for instance, set the print server to something like 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.3, as long as another device does not use that address.
Step 7
Set a password to be used to access the unit’s online configuration application.
Step 8 Configure the print server to access your wireless network. Give it the same SSID network name as your router and set it to use the same wireless channel. If encryption is used on the router, enable encryption on the print server, and enter the encryption key or password.
Step 9 Follow the instructions given by the print server’s software for installing printer drivers on the unit.
Step 10
Disconnect the Ethernet cable and allow the unit to connect via the wireless network.
Step 11 Install the printing drivers on each computer that will use the printer.
Step 12 Access the print server’s online configuration application to verify all settings by entering the IP address of the unit into a web browser, using the “http://192.168.0.2” format. Enter the administrator name and password.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My wGPS606 wont print on my Windows Vista laptop!


I just found a way to enable the HP P1006 with a different print server (Liveprint on Orange Livebox router). Perhaps this might work with the WGPS606 wireless print server?

I set up the P1006 via the print server as instructed (I'm using Vista 32 Home Premium) but no test page would print.

BUT!! (with thanks to another another forum):

I selected printers, then right-clicked on the wireless printer I'd just installed and selected 'properties'.

Under the 'Ports' tab I deselected 'Enable bidirectional support'.

Problem solved.

Hope this helps.

let me inform you that this printer is not compatible with any wireless print server. The drawback is that it is not possible to network such printers. A printer needs a steady flow of data, which is easily accomplished when it is connected directly to a PC, but cannot be guaranteed when the printer is connected via a LAN. Also, these technologies require intensive handshaking between the driver and the printer.
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's memory and processing power."

Sorry I can't be more upbeat - but its probably useful to know that someone at HP thinks the job's imposible - unless someone out there has a fix?

Router MI424WR-D


Hi Steven,

You will not be able to setup this printer wirelessly to your router as it is because the printer has no networking capabilities(ethernet or wi-fi). If you want to share the printer throughout the network you need a wireless/wired print server or just enable file and printer sharing on the computer where the lexmark printer is connected the only downside with the second setup is the computer where the printer is connected must stay powered on all the time in order for the rest of the computers ion your network to print compared to the 1st setup with the a print server which is stand alone.
