IOGear GPSU21 doesn't work wirelessly with ip4500. Laptop running vista home 64

First, you have to make sure that the printer can print directly connected to the computer.

Second, make sure that you can "ping" the print server while it's connected to the router.

If the printer works when connected to the computer and you can ping the print server, then you just need to change the port in the print server utility. It should be set to LP1 and not LPT. The queue name should be set to L1.

Check also the printer port, and be sure that it's set to USB001 or USB002 Virtual Printer Port.

If same problem occur, try to uninstall and re-install the server utility. Use the link below to download the utility for Vista 64-bit OS:

You may refer to the user manual of GPSU21 or call IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

Thank you and good luck!

Can print from mac, cannot print from pc. have checked, both applications have correct printer selected

What is the operating system of your PC? Is this working before with your PC or is this the first time you are trying to install this Bluetotth Printer Kit?

If this is the first time, verify the OS of your PC. Because the USB Bluetooth adapter (GBU311) of this wireless printer server (GBP302KIT) could only support Win 98SE up to XP 32-bit (according to the system requirements).

But if this has worked before and then suddenly stopped working, try to uninstall/re-install the Bluetooth driver that's in your PC.

Everytime you are trying to detect the Bluetooth adapter that's on the printer, make sure that the Blue light is blinking (printer light).

If same problem occur, contact IOGEAR (866-946-4327). It's a free customer service support.

Thank you and good luck!

First, make sure that the Kodak printer driver is properly installed in your Sony Vaio. Make sure that you can print while the Kodak is directly connected to Sony Vaio.

If you can print directly connected to it, try to reinstall the GPSU21 Utility.

Good luck!

Print server Iogear GPSU21 + HP Deskjet F4180 do not print!

The print server is Vista compatible. However, the Deskjet F4180 is not listed as a supported printer.Look at this list: . This print server is not the right one for your printer. You can either try a different print server, a supported printer or directly connect the printer to a computer and make that computer a print server for the rest of your network. The last option will take a bit more work. In Windows, the directly connected computer will need to allow sharing for the printer and the firewall software will need to trust the other machines in the network connect to it. The other computers will only be able to print and not use the other multi-function features. You may need to get additional software drivers to make this work (particularly if one computer uses a 64-bit OS and another has a 32-bit OS).

I hope this helps.

Vista cannot connect to xp printer

It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Problem in taking a print from Nokia 3500 using kyocera printer attached with Bluetooth adaptor

Check your Bluetooth adapter and see if it requires driver. If it requires driver then you can't just plug it in to your printer unless your printer has a built-in drivers for Bluetooth adapters.

Check if the printer supports Bluetooth adapters and make sure that your Bluetooth adapter is compatible with the printer.

Does IOGEAR GPSU21 work with Vista?

before running the PS Wizard in Vista, right-click on the icon for PS Wizard and select "run as administrator". This will clear the bind errors and wrong segment errors many times - this only applies to vista.
