Question about Linksys Wireless-G WPS54G Print Server
Problem with Linksys Wireless-G WPS54G Print Server. Found printer not accessible on wireless network. In diagnostics wizard, the print server "Can't Be Found". I refreshed the list, but nothing comes up. I then connected a cat 5 cable from Print Server to Belkin Router, reset the PS, and still nothing.
Check the settings on your wireless print server. And as well check your router.

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 192.168.1.1 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 192.168.1.78.
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.
