Linksys wireless prnt server

I recently purchased a Linksys wireless print server. I had difficulty trying to install so I phoned a Linksys technicain who tried a manual installation and also a CD installation. Neither process was successful. She said even if we managaed to get it installed, I would probably expereince problems when trying to print. She suggested I try to get an Epson printserver....if it was compatable with my Linksys Wireless router. (WRT54G V8)

My printer is an Epson Stylus Photo RX600.

I have a 2241 Neptoia modem.

Please tell me what I need to successfully make my printer wireless.

Thank you,
Paula Covington

Re: Linksys wireless prnt server


Based on your post description, I am assuming that:
1. You can connect to the Internet through your 2241 Neptoia modem;
2. You can access your WRT54G V8 Linksys Wireless router @;
3. Both 1 & 2 above could be done through a wireless connection from your PC.

Connect everything as they are supposed to be wired (printer, Print Server, modem, router etc)

Pls try:
a. Connect the Linksys wireless print server using a lan cable to the Linksys WRT54G Wireless AP/router. (Will tackle the wireless connection a bit later)
b. Reset your print server; &
c. Do a diagnostic print-out.
Instructions for b & c are in page 4 of your manual.

You need to verify that:
i. the Power indicator is contnously green
ii. the Ethernet indicator is contnously green
iii. the USB indicator is contnously green
iv. the Wireless indicator may or may not be contnously green

Pls post back with the generated diagnostic print-out before we can proceed with the other steps.

Additionally, try installing the Epson Stylus Photo RX600 direct to one of the USB ports of your PC. Use the installer/driver CD that came with it. Try using it as a regular printer. This will tell us status of the printer.

Good luck and kind regards.

Linksys Wireless-G Print Server

Dear Davisj, This is a typical problem that occurs when you have an active firewall. Try disabling the firewall and you should be able to print. Linksys is known for their customer service and expertise, I would suggest giving these folks a call at: 1-800-LINKSYS, they will walk you through the process of setting this up correctly. If you don't want to call, the problem lies in your firewall. Look for the IP address on the printed test page. If you are using a Linksys router with a default IP address of, the printserver should be getting an IP range of 192.168.1.x as well indicating that it is properly obtaining an IP address from the network. Once you locate your IP address all you need to do is go to your Firewall settings for your Mcafee software and add permission to add a specific IP address and you will enter your Print Server's IP address. This should fix your problem! Good luck! The following link should provide you with additional details to fix your Print Server:
