Printer prints sheets of symbols, numbers and few letters then prints and puts spaces in words, next it prints with an a with a mark above it in every line and some letters try to be on the same space.


you may have the wrong printer driver installed, or you are trying to print content with the wrong program.

Another possibility might be RF interference, especially if you have moved equpment, or put a radio next to it, or a telephone.

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?

Printer prints multiple pages with DPR1260 print server


I was having the same problem when I added a Windows Vista PC to my home network. My older XP systems workd fine, but the Vista system would keep printing. The following fix worked forme in vista, may work in XP also.

1. First, be sure you have the latest firmware in your DPR1260. Version 1.24 is what I am using.
2. From the printer window (or via controlm panel) select your printer, then select Properties (either right click, or from the menu via File-Properties)
3. In the Properties Window, select the Ports tab. You should see your printer highlighted and checked, under the port heading next to thcheck box you'll see IP_192.168.x.x, under descriptio Standard TCP/IP Port, and undr Printer, the name of your printer.
4. Click the "Configure Port" button, be sure "LPR" is selected, not "RAW". Under LPR Settings, check that the "Queue Name" matches that in our DPR1260 status screen, and be sure SNMP Status Enabled is not checked.

The problem on my Vista machine went away when I changed from "RAW" to "LPR" settings.

Hope this helps.

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

Printer driver hangs on install


You get a ROOT HUB error when your USB port on your computer needs additional drivers. The print server drivers needs to configure your printer drivers. The only solution for this is CALL LINKSYS TECH SUPPORT. TELL THE TECHNICIAN THAT YOU HAVE A ROOT HUB ERROR. Linksys will send you ADDITIONAL DRIVERS for your root hub. UPDATE your ROOT HUB using the ADDITIONAL DRIVERS. Uninstall the WPSM54G from the add/remove programs. RUN SET UP COMPUTER AGAIN

Prints part of the page then restarts the print


One suggestions would be to update the firmware of the Netgear Wireless print server Download the firmware for your print server from Netgear's website http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d102781.asp Instructions for upgrade are on the site! you can also try changing the spool settings, Set it to Print directly to printer RightClick on the printer click on properties and click the advanced tab. Change the spool setting to print directly to printer!! If this doesn't work kindly let me know! regards, babb
