Question about Trendware TRENDnet TE100-P1U Print Server
The utilities that came with the print server install OK, but get an error when attempting to connect to the print server. Same issue - driver loads & finds print server (TE100-P1U) fine, sets IP address (& I can ping p/s ok) but Add Printer in Vista reports "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Make sure that you have typed the name correctly, and that the printer is connected to the network." then returns to the Add Printer window, listing U1 on PS-xxxxxx \\ps-xxxxxx\U1 as (only) network printer to select. Running Vista Home Premium sp1. The PC I'm doing the setup from is connected wireless to a Linksys wireless router; printer is hard-wired to 100Bt port on this router. Ideas?

Unplug it over night. try it again tomorrow. If it still shows all green its fried. It there a reset button anywhere on it? Try holding it down(if there is) while plugging it in. Keep the reset depressed for 30 seconds or so. Otherwise no bueno. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

OK, are you doing all this as Administrator? This is a must do.
Are you sure that you have the right IP address?
Can you Ping the unit?
Try another browser to do so, try Firefox, or Google Chrome.
Is your Ethernet cable OK?
Is the Driver a Win 7? if not perhaps you need to set compatibility mode for XP SP2? AND Run as Administrator.
Is UAC set to OFF.
If 64 Bit system has Digital Driver Signing been set to OFF, if the driver isn't digitally signed? (Press F8 at boot up and choose from bottom of list)
Also make sure that you have Disabled DHCP server in ALL PC's, go to Services, and see if it is disabled? It needs to be.
Below is the install how to, have a look at it, see if it's the same as yours?
OK, try this hook directly to the PS, from a PC via, use an standard Ethernet cable, use a direct connection, Do NOT go through the router/ switch, now try setting it all up. Now you should see it connect to the unit,
You should be able to access it, if direct connected, if it still doesn't respond, then the only thing it can now be is a faulty unit?
If OK, once configured then you can hook it up as per diagram, and it should then work.
