    Problem is when the Wireless-n router is configured with both 2.4GHz & 5 GHz the printer server would not connect to the router. the pc's are working fine. If router is configured as 2.4ghz only printer server works fine.

    Maybe i was not clear, running the 2.4ghz and 5ghz at the same time on the router, the pc is working at the 5ghz without problems, but i am not able to connect the printerserver on the 2.4ghz band. If i rung only 2.4ghz on the router bboth either the pc and printer server is working..

    Hi, Thankx, but seems that i found the sollution my self. If you set the printerserver in to 802.11g only instead of 802.11b and 802.11g its working perfectly !! so this problem is solved and could be closed

You know it is not possible for the 2 wireless bands to operate at the same time. It is only possible if your wireless computer has 5GHz-capability adapter, but I think your PC is only limited to 2.4 GHz. What you can try is to change the channel on 2.4 GHz different from 5 GHz channel. Example, set the 2.4 GHz to use channel 11, and the 5 GHz to use channel 1. They won't conflict with that. Remember, your PC must have 5 GHz capability, it's called a Wireless-A cards, which happen to be rare nowadays.Wireless-A adapters use 5 GHz frequency only.

First - let's get an understanding of what we're dealing with.

Wireless-n can operate on both 2.4GHz & 5 GHz - Wireless-g is 2.4 GHz only.

Next - due to the increased attenuation that occurs at higher frequencies, a 5GHz transmission at any given distance will always be weaker than an otherwise identical 2.4 GHz transmission at the same distance.

Because of this increased attenuation, your 5GHz wireless-n signal will be weaker and cover less area than your 2.4GHz wireless-g signal, however, if you re-configure the WNDR3300 to use the 2.4GHz radio for wireless-n you should see the increased range you are expecting.

I want to set up my wifi dvd player to one of the wifi connections and leave the other for my lap top. don't know how to use both of the wifi connections.


This is NOT a DVD player. The Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router WNDR3300 features a rather misleading name. The router doesn't support true dual-band wireless-N, nor does it offer very good range. It's a basic router with two separate access points (AP), one of which supports Wireless-N and can operate in either 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequencies--similar to the D-Link DGL-4500--while the other is a regular 802.11G 2.4GHz-only AP. The result is that when in dual-band mode the router is able to offer Wireless-N only in the 5Ghz frequency, while the 2.4Ghz frequency is maxed out at the 802.11G speed. Still, if you have a growing stable of 5Ghz-based devices and want a router that supports both frequencies, the WNDR3300 is the cheapest router on the market (at about $100) that will suit your needs.

While its max throughput is relatively low, the router offered very consistent and considerably high throughput speeds on both our mixed-mode and long-range throughput tests. Unfortunately, its range is possibly the shortest among Wireless-N routers. If range is not important to you and your network primarily consists of 5GHz-based clients, the WNDR330 is a good bet. Otherwise, for the same price, we'd recommend the 2.4GHz-only Linksys WRT310N; or you can pay $50 more for the true dual-band Linksys WRT610n.

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.

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

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?
