Check the "sleep" it around 2 hours? Also, check the sleep time on the printer too.

Re: linksys print server psus4 held

I've worked with literally hundreds of these exact print servers. The answer is really not much of an answer. The device requires a restart often because it locks up. After hours and hours with Linksys and a few custom firmware tweaks...still locks. Sometimes we just have to accept that things don't always work the way they are supposed too = "junk". Although I will tell you this, of all the print servers we have tried, this one is NOT the worst. Incidentally, there is no sleep option on that model print server. ...for what it's worth.

2. By manually install the program into your system. (Browse CD to the folder: manual installation.)
It is recommended to use the 2nd method and run the PSAdmin utility from the system's programs after the installation is completed.
If it still could not find the print server, direct connect your computer to the print server using cross over cable and run the utility again to find the print server.
When it finds the print server, change the print server IP( to a unique static IP your router can accept. Put the print server back to the network, change back your computer's IP accordingly and try ping the print server with the new IP or run the utility again.

For wireless print server, it is recommended to use Ad-hoc connection from a wireless computer to connect to the print server first. (follow the Quick Installation Guide booklet that came with the box on page 8)

DP-300 Print Server Access Problem

Using a print server like this, you should not need to "browse" to find the printers. See what ip address has been assigned to the printer. Once you have the ip address, open a command prompt (start -> run -> cmd) and type:
ping <insert ip address>
ex: ping

See if you can ping the printer from each of your computers. If you can, great, install the new printer by adding a "local" printer at a new TCP/IP port with the IP address of your printer. If not, then you may have some routing issues.

Are all of the printers connected to the same switch? Do you have multiple "routers" on your network acting as DHCP servers?

Hope this helps.

Can't connect to WPSM54G after configuring it

hi sir,

1. first reset the printserver
2. make sure that the printer drivers are installed on the comp.
3. use a w/l comp on which we can go online
4. connect the w/l comp to the print server using ethernet cable and also connect the printer to the print server
5. put the print server cd into the comp and run setup.
6. make sure printer server is near to router and there is no firewall on the comp.
7. the setup will give the ipaddress to print server if not plz assign static ip on the printserver.
8. follow the wizard
9. it will ask u the w/l settings to enter. plz type the exact same n/w name and security password.and apply the settings.
10.after that it will connect u to the print server and u will be able to print if you will not u will find an error to open port. need to open standard tcp/ip ports for the printserver ipaddress that u have assigned.

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.

Network printing

I am afraid, PSUS4 is an older model of print server , which supports only ordinary printers. All in ones are not supported by PSUS4. Linksys have other print server which works with all in one printers. The model number is WPSM54G. Probably you can try that. Also, if the PSUS4 is less than one month old, you can get it replaced with the WPSM54G from the stores itself . The WPSM54G can be used as wired as well as wireless to the router. If you want to use the PSUS4, you may need an ordinary printer like Office jet or laser jet with USB 1.1 version.- Thank you

Hi How to check the print server is in the wireless network or not!! Check under the Router Setup page Router's ip address... Check if you are able to ping the Print Server Ip address....Since it the router will assign a ip address from DHCP range.. If you are able to ping the router's ip address and the print server ip address then the print server is in the Wireless LAN... Try the following steps. 1. Go to run and type "cmd" press enter 2. type ipconfig. 3. Check the range of ip address...if its 192.168.0.XX 4. Try pinging that ip address.. 5. If able to ping the router and print server.. Then the wireless network is fine... Somehow some of the printer's don't work with some of the print servers.. Check if D-link does support the printer or not!!!! for this particular model of the router...

Linksys Wireless-G Print Server

Dear Davisj, This is a typical problem that occurs when you have an active firewall. Try disabling the firewall and you should be able to print. Linksys is known for their customer service and expertise, I would suggest giving these folks a call at: 1-800-LINKSYS, they will walk you through the process of setting this up correctly. If you don't want to call, the problem lies in your firewall. Look for the IP address on the printed test page. If you are using a Linksys router with a default IP address of, the printserver should be getting an IP range of 192.168.1.x as well indicating that it is properly obtaining an IP address from the network. Once you locate your IP address all you need to do is go to your Firewall settings for your Mcafee software and add permission to add a specific IP address and you will enter your Print Server's IP address. This should fix your problem! Good luck! The following link should provide you with additional details to fix your Print Server:
