Re: how to install pocket printer server
Your DHCP server will keep track of which MAC Addresses have been given what IP addresses. From there, find the IP address of your Print Server. Ping the IP address to confirm IP connectivity between your computer and the print server. You should then be able to upgrade the firmware.

Check the IP Address of the 2833. I believe there is a gray button you can depress to print out a configuration sheet. If the wireless modem was also your router, you may have a different IP address range and will need to set the 2833 accordingly.
Get the IP address subnet and gateway address of a computer in the same network.
Usingthe LJ5's control panel, setup a static IP for the Jet Direct using thenumbers you got from the Laptop, except change the last number of theIP to one that is not being currently being used. Perhaps adding 5 or10 to the highest number in use. Here are the steps to configure the LJ5.
1.Press MENU, repeatedly, until the following message appears on thecontrol panel: HP LaserJet 5/5n/5m and the original Color LaserJet: HPMIO MENU 2. Press ITEM. CFG NETWORK=NO* will appear. 3. Press the PLUS button once. CFG NETWORK=YES* will appear. 4. Press ENTER or SELECT. 5. Press ITEM repeatedly until CFG TCP/IP=NO* appears. 6. Press the PLUS button. CFG TCP/IP=YES* will appear. 7. Press ENTER or SELECT. 8. Press ITEM until BOOTP=YES* appears. 9. Press the PLUS button. BOOTP=NO will appear. o When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP=YES*. o The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. o No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary. 10. Press ENTER or SELECT. 11. Press ITEM. IP BYTE 1 = (value) will appear. 12.Press the PLUS button until the value of the first byte of the IPaddress appears on the control-panel display. By pressing SHIFT and thePLUS button, the value will decrease. 13. Press ENTER or SELECT. 14. Press ITEM to continue. Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the remaining bytes of the IP address. 15.Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the subnet mask bytes (SM BYTE 1=),syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=), default gateway (GW BYTE 1=),and timeout (TIMEOUT=). 16. Press ONLINE. Print a self-test page to verify the IP settings. 17. If the test page does not show the correct settings, power cycle the printer and reprint the test page.

If I remember correctly there is a reset/print configuration button on the pocket print server. With it connected and the printer on, press it once and it should print out a configuration sheet with its settings. If that doesn't work, disconnect the power and with the button held in, reconnect the power and release the button.
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'.
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
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
how are you? Pls try the following to troubleshoot....
1. Remove all memory cards 2. Disable Wireless 3. Disable any infared device drivers such as a keyboard... 4. Under settings clear the checkbox under Beam. 5. Soft Reset 6. Install Pocket PrintCE Pocket Print CE 7. Soft Reset 8. Try to print if you can or cant continue 9. Soft Reset 10. Install Sipix driver 11. Soft Reset 12. Try to print if you can print wait a few days make sure its still working. Then when ready remove Print Pocket CE And....some info... Software The Pocket Printer uses a special version of IS/Complete's IrPrint. This allows it to print from all the built-in applications. I think it handles this in a very cool way. In order to print something, just launch the IrPrint application. This brings up a screen with large buttons to open any of the built-in apps. Tap on one of these and the actual application will be opened. You can do anything you would normally do in this app, plus each now has an "IrPrint" option added to its first drop-down window. Clicking on this will open the print driver.
That explanation might not be clear so I'll walk through an example. Say you have an Address Book entry to want to print. First, open the SiPix application and choose Address. This will open the Address Book app allowing you to look up the address you are interested in.This is the regular Address Book; you could add, edit, or delete any entry at this point. But instead you want to print one so you find it and open it. If you tap on the Menu silk screen button the Record drop-down box will appear. At the bottom of this drop-down box is a new entry: IrPrint. Tap on it. At this point, it is necessary to be pointing your palm's IR port at the Pocket Printer's. The Palm will spent a few seconds finding the printer then open a window of options.
This capability is available as an installable option from 3rd party software vendors, and possibly from some printer manufacturers. A compatible printer with a Pocket PC 2002 driver is required. See www.Westtek.com
