Check the IP address of your computer and see if it's on the same range of the IP address of the printer server.

Ex. print server IP: 192.168.1.4
Your computer must have 192.168.1.XXX

Note: X can be any no. from 1 to 254

To assign an IP address on your computer:

Start > Control Panel > Network connection

Go to the properties of the local area connection then click on TCP/IP tab.

You can now assign an IP address on your computer with the same range of the print server.

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

Computer can's see Print Server in Add Printer Wizard The WGPS606 installation -- part 1 -- seemed to go fine. It sees our wireless network, we assigned it an IP address, it sees the printer connected to...


Make sure the printer has been connected locally first and that the print drivers have been installed. This should then allow you to add the printer via the set up.

I need IP address for print server WGPS606


The default IP address of the print serer is 192.168.0.102

This print server works as DHCP client. it will automtically pick an IP from the DHCP, unless assigned statically.

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

Can't connect WGPS606 wireless printer server to cable router


suggest plugging print server directly into p.c via blue ethernet cable during setup. Then run setup program and then pick an ip address that works with your router (in same network ip range of router) that does not clash . I would use print server as a switch if it is close to the router by ethernet cable between router and wireless print server. Then both should work
Wireless to server and other wired computers as well .

Unable to print through the print server


First, make sure that you can print with the printer connected directly to your computer using a usb cable.

- Make sure the printer driver is installed and you can print with a direct connection
- Get the print server's IP Address, NetGear should have already provided you with this info.
- If your'e using windows xp, go to control panel > printers and faxes
- Right click on the printer icon and go to properties
- Click on the PORTS tab
- Click on ADD PORT
- Highlight Standard TCP/IP Port then click on New Port
- Click next
- Input the WGPS606 IP Address
- Print a test page...

-hope it works!!

Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 won't install correctly


I finally got my WGPS606 installed - unfortunately, it's just on one computer so far, but that computer is on the network and is not wired. Here are a few tips:

1. hold the reset button (little pinhole) until you see some action going on with the lights (I forget exactly what happened, but after a while there was a change) - this served to "reset" my WGPS606's IP Address, which I had changed during setup.

2. connect your computer to the server with an ethernet cable and type in http://192.168.0.102 (the default IP Address of the server)

3. login with the default username and password:
username: admin
password: password

4. once logged in, you will see all of the WGPS606's information. At that point, you should be able to change the IP Address of the server to what you want it to be, but I think you can proceed to run the setup on the installation CD (or the installation program from the WGPS606's Netgear website) and it should be recognized on the wireless network.

In my case, I want to mention that when the initial setup failed for me, I used the MAC address on the back of the server. After steps 1-4, my server was finally on the wireless network by the installation program, however, the MAC address was 1 digit off from what was on the server. The MAC address on the back of the server was the PHYSICAL MAC address, whereas the WIRELESS MAC address was one digit higher (last set of numbers. For instance, on the back of the server, the MAC address ended in ":01" and I found out that this was the physical MAC address. The wireless MAC address was exactly the same, except the last 2 digits were ":02."

Another thing to note was that after the server was recognized, it told me to reserve a specific IP Address other than what I had previously set - I didn't realize that it chose it for you. Anyway, just keep that in mind. After this, everything worked like a charm - well, I have yet to set up the other computers to connect to the server, but at least I have one!

Hope this helps!
