Question about NetGear WGPS606 (WGPS606NAR) Print Server

1 Answer

Connectivity I am having a problem setting up my WGPS606, Netgear wireless print server. It was connected to my WNDR3300, netgear wireless router and 4 port switch. I could not tell you why it stopped working. I can run the print server utility and it can see my network I do put in my 64 bite WEP key but it will not connect. I did take down the protection (WEP) on my network but that did not work. I have verified the WEP key many times. The router is running both G and N band networks and I have changed the channels on both incase it is interference. No luck Any advice?

Perhaps an ip conflict. If so, assign server an ip outside of normal client range.

How do I connect with my WGPS606 if there is no setup cd and the default ip does not work? My router has encryption and the WGPS needs the info.


you need to set your print server for dhcp, you need to log in and verify the settings OR just set it back to default because dhcp is default. gl

Hi there, can I use the WGPS606 as an AP ? Many Thanks


I understand that you want to use the print server WGPS606 as an access point. Regarding the concern, please note that it is not possible to configure or use this device as AP. This device however can act as as wireless bridge. It can connect wirelessly to the wireless network of your wireless router/ap and provide wired connection.

Hope this helps.

WGPS606 does not like printers


Hi, visit the link below to check the compatibility list of this print server. If your printer is not listed then it means that it has not been tested with this print server and there is equal chances for its nonfunctioning with the print server.

for further support with any netgear product visit my.netgear.com

Do rate it, if it helps.

Installation assistant cannot detect print server


Results of attempting to connect the Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 and the Canon MF6550 multifunction laser printer. I was on the phone for several hours last evening (March 9, until about midnight EDT) with a very competent support agent from Netgear (actually in the Philippines). The Netgear setup Wizard software would not connect the Print Server to my Verizon FiOS wireless G router automatically, so the Netgear support agent walked me through it manually. The Print Server connected that way, for sure. Then we manually attempted to connect the Print Server to my Canon MF6550 and subsequently, my HP 932C Deskjet. Neither printer is on the WGPS606 compatible list, nor is either on the known incompatible list. Now we know - both printers are INCOMPATIBLE with the Netgear WGPS606. I bought both the Netgear Print Server and the Canon MF6550 at Staples on Sat., March 8, 2008, based upon the assurance from Staples staff that it would all work. The question now is whether ANY brand of wireless Print Server will work with the Canon MF6550, or do I have to return this printer and get either a Canon with built in networking (ethernet or wireless) or switch to the Brother equivalent (MFC 8870DW). If I get a (multi-function) printer with built-in Ethernet networking, does the Ethernet capability bypass the USB incompatibility problem, or will the problem remain?

Printer server, wireless, detached cable now won't print


It is because the WiFI connection is more than likely on another IP address ie: Cable:192.168.0.1 type thing. WiFi:10.1.1.1 Type thing... so ya have to configure ya access and point ya printer in the right direction, so reinstall ya printer & driver and when it asks where the network printer is, point it to the correct address of the router's port..
