Re: Linksys print server Model EPSX3

Firmware upgrade for your print server could fix your problem or kill your print server.

Try this first: SET UP A STANDARD TCP/IP port.
Set a static ip on the print server. Use that ip address to set up your STANDARD TCP/IP PORT. You can do this on the printers and faxes page.
Right click the default printer then click properties. You have to ADD A NEW PORT.

Good Day

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Is wps54g wireless print router compatible with windows 7: how do I get it installed

Contrary to the on-line advice that I have found, the Linksys wireless print server WPS54G is compatible with Windows 7. It is the installation program that is not compatible. While not as bad as the early days of setting hardware dip switches, the print server must be installed manually. Following are the many steps that I took to install my WPS54G to work with Windows 7; lengthy, but worth it.

1. Connect your printer to the PC using a USB cable and USB port. Allow the printer to install. Print a test page. Even though you just installed the printer, check for an updated printer driver at the manufacturer's website. I did this late in the process before I could get the printer to work. It installed an HP universal driver.

2. Set the printer as the default.

3. If you do not know the IP address of your print server, access the router using your browser. See your manual for instructions. For a Linksys, type the default IP router address into the browser address bar. If you have done this in the past, set up your router security. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin.

4. Connect your print server to the PC using a USB cable and USB port.

5. On the router locate the DHCP Client Table and determine the IP address of the print server. You might have to refresh the table. The default is probably

6. Access the print server using your browser and the IP address of the print server. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin. Set up security to match the router, SSID, password, type of encryption, etc.

7. Go to "Devices and Printers" (from the start menu), on the default printer icon that you just installed, right click and open "Printer Properties." Click on the "Ports" tab.

8. Click on "Add Port." Select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click on "New Port." Click "Next." Add the IP address of the print server (probably 192, 168.1.78) and call the port whatever you want. Click "Next."

9. After the port configures and you get the "Port Settings" tab (you can also get there by clicking on "Configure Port), change the protocol to "LPR" and click "LPS byte counting enabled." Use "p1" or P2" etc. for the "queue name."

10. Disconnect the print server from the USB port and let it sit for 30 seconds.

11. Disconnect the printer from the USB port.

EtherFast Print Server manual

Other gurus might correct me, but I don't think this can easily be done. You are dealing with "parallel" data with the HP and "serial" data with the PC. If your HP has cards you can change, then conversion to serial data is relatively simple, otherwise...

With this print server not all printer are compatible with it, but if you connect same model of printer that was also working with this print server, best thing to do here again is to reset the router and reconfigure it back using the setup CD that came with it and if still the same problem, it will be better to call Linksys tech support so they can check if your printer is compatible with this print server if its compatible let one of the Linksys tech walk you through with the process, they are open 24/7 this is the number 800-3267114....

Hope that helps...........

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
