Question about Troy WindConnect With WindPort PC Card (WNDCMB-001) Print Server

2 Answers

Troy Windconnect printserver has stopped working

I have been using a parallel bluetooth printserver for some time now. After my notebook had a problem and the mainboard has been replaced my troy printserver doesn't work any more. The adapter has serial no.722315. When I connect the power to the adapter the activity and link led blink for a little while and then stop. Than when I connect the adapter to my HP Laserjet 4 nothing seems to work. Pressing the testbutton gives no reaction. The bluetooth drivers on my notebook work, I can connect trough bluetooth to my mobile phone.
Please tell me what to do to get the adapter working again.

Due to tolerances in manufacturing, some Bluetooth-adapters/receivers do not stick to the Bluetooth-standards exactly. If this only applies for one adapter/receiver in a pair everything works fine nevertheless. But if both do not stick to the standard, they might not be able to work together, although both would work with a standard-conform third one.

Before your mainboard was replaced, only your printserver was not exactly standard-conform. Now with a new mainboard (and therfore a new Bluetooth-adapter on it) just by accident your Bluetooth-adapter does not confirm to the standard, too.

If all this is right in your case, the solution would be to buy a Bluetooth-usb-dongle for your notebook and use this instead of the built-in Bluetooth-adapter of your notebook. If this new Bluetooth-usb-dongle confirms to the Bluetooth-standards better than your built-in adapter, this might cure the problem. Since such a Bluetooth-usb-dongle only costs about 10 Dollars, it might be worth a try.

Greetings, Michael

You can power off the Router and Printserver..then test the printserver if still detected on computer,direct testing on computer first..then if it is good,check your network if running good and have an IP addresses..check the IP of printserver too..name it as you like.

How can I connect wireless G print server to a 65bits windows vista without a problem, it just works for WIN XP


Hi, it appears that many are having problems with the WPS54G Print Server. I too have always found it hard to get pc to connect to it. My latest problem was with a Win 7, 64bit pc.

Setting up a printer with a print server is a two part configuration. First you need to configure the print server and then add a printer in your OS.

The following instructions are for a linksys wireless router and the linksys wirless print server model # WPS54G.

To set up the print server correctly go to this link.....http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?pid=80&login=1&app=search&vw=1&articleid=4142&donelr=1

Following is the instructions from the above link:
Title: Connecting the PrintServer Wirelessly to a Wireless Router Article ID: 4142 Before configuring the wireless settings of the PrintServer, make sure to know the following settings on your linksys router: SSID, and wireless security. To check the wireless settings on the linksys router, click here.
Configuring the Wireless Settings on the PrintServer
The wireless settings of the PrintServer can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the PrintServer is set to a static IP on the network.

Record the Print Servers IP address you will need it later.

NOTE: Make sure the PrintServer is already working when hardwired to the linksys router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network.
Step 1:
Access the PrintServer’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer.
NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the PrintServer's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer.
NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here.
Step 3:
When the PrintServer setup page appears, click Wireless.
Step 4:
Enter the same SSID you have on the linksys router. Make sure the Network Type is set to Infrastructure then click Save to apply your changes.
Step 5:
Click Security and look under the Security Mode field. Select the type of wireless security your router is currently using then enter the corresponding security keys.
Step 6:
Click Save to apply the settings then close the PrintServer setup page.
Step 7:
Unplug the Ethernet cable connecting the PrintServer to the linksys router. Power it off for 30 seconds then power it on.
Step 8:
Make sure the Wireless LED on the PrintServer is lit and the Ethernet LED is off to indicate that the PrintServer is in wireless mode then try to print wirelessly.

Stop if you can print at this point. If not continue. The following instructions are for Windows 7, 64 bit OS.


Once the above steps are completed open windows file explore. Click Network and you should see a "print server" listed. Click on PRINT SERVER and you will see a network icon labeled p1.

You should now be able to add a printer.

In win 7 open the add printer and click "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer", and click next. A searching for printer window pops up. It will list any network printers or print servers it see's on your network. You should see a listing titled "p1 on Print Server".

At this point you need to click "The printer that I want isn't listed. This is just below the "Select a printer" box.

Next a "Find a printer by nane or TCP/IP address" window opens. Select "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname. Click next.

Another window pops up which ask for a printer host name or IP address. Enter the IP address of your print server (the one you recorded when setting up your print server), and click next.

The next windows states the device is of unknown type. Under Device Type, make sure Standard is checked. Out to the right is a down arrow, click it and you should see many different devices displayed. Scroll until you find "Hewlet Packard Jet Direct", click on it to select it and click next.

Finally a "Install the printer Driver" window should open. Select your printer and follwing the instructions. If your printer is not listed you can click "Window Update" which will look for new printer divers. Once the printer driver is installed you should be able to print.

As you can see this in not a simple printer install. Good luck!

Failed response from plugin device


Dirty fix...
When the printer errors out...stop, unplug the power to the printserver. Reset the printer, Clear the print que (delete jobs/restart print spooling service), restart the printserver software and plug the printserver power back in. Wait for the re-detect. Everthing should be good at this point. Unfortunatly the print job will be lost and you need to print again...BUT, NO REBOOT yea!!!
Note... for me, if this sequence is not followed, I will have to reboot. The printserver will be locked for the PC that was trying to print. All other PC's will be fine, and I have no idea why.
Good luck,
Bill

Upgrade failure


The software that came with the WPS54G model is not (yet)compatible with Vista systems. This model is not listed on the Vista-ready devices from Linksys' website (www.linksys.com/vista). The behavior more likely a result of a software incompatibility.

For PrintServer network setup, you may still use the CD on a non-Vista system (XP, Win2000 or lower). Or, by installing it manually by accessing it's web interface.

To make your Vista working with the printserver WITHOUT the use of the PrintServer CD, do the ff:
1. Make sure PrintServer is configured on the network with the same wireless settings of your router and with a manually assigned IP address which is in range of the router's IP segment.
2. Make sure that computer can print locally to the printer (e.g. via USB connection to the printer).
3. When computer can surf the net and connected to the router's network (wired or wireless), follow the steps from this article and make sure Printer is showing up as Online.

Goodluck!

Does your network have a dedicated computer server and the printer is attached to this server or is the printer attached to a dedicated print server device?
OR
Does a computer on your network shares its printer with other computers on your network?
There is insufficient information on how you configured your printer setup for me to give you a proper answer to your problem.

Installation wizard does not locate the WPSM54G


hello!

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

PSUS4 problem "talking" to Canon S330


Hi dreaddymck
I need a little more information on the setup. Is there a router in your network? If there is, is your PrintServer connected to the router and your computer is attempting to connect to the printserver through the router? If there is no router and your PrintServer is connected to your printer via the USB port and your computer is connected to one of the ports on the PrintServer via a cat5 cable, I would check to see whether you are actually communicating with the PrinterServer by pinging its IP address from the computer. If the ping is successful, then I would look at the printer properties in your computer's printer control panel and check the port configuration. Usually it is shows the IP address, port 9100 and port protocol is usually set to RAW. Otherwise I would attempt to reinstall the PrintServer using the CD originally provided. It appears to me that the server may not be publishing its IP address on your network.

If your problem still persists then If the printer and the printserver is on and connected to the printserver and the router respectively. Then try right clicking on the printer icon in the printers and faxes window to set it online. Try Printing. If it did not work, then right click on the printer icon again > Properties > Ports > set the proper network port. Apply the settings and try Printing.
