I need more information regarding your problem. You mentioned printers, which I assume you are referring to more than one printer device.
Are the printers connected or capable of using the Ethernet port on the gigabyte switch? If they or some of the printers are connected directly to the switch through an Ethernet cable you may need to configure the device from the I/O menu accessed through the printer setup to activate the Ethernet connection or Jet Direct from the HP printers. You will need to assign a TCP/IP address on the printer which should match the computer's network IP without duplicating the address. If the computer IP address is 192.168.0.1 the printer must use an address which no other computer or device is using, for example, 192.168.0.100 (note you can only change the last number of the IP address).
If you are trying to access printers connected to a port on one of the network computers I need to know if it is a PC or MAC? If it is a PC, I need to know the operating system type i.e. Windows, DOS, Linux, or Unix and version i.e. Windows7, Vista, XP, 98. I will assume Windows XP, which needs to have the printer device marked as Shared. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Right click on the printer you are trying to use and select Sharing. Select Share this printer and give it a share name to help you identify it when shared on the network and click OK. Go to another computer on the network where you want to use the shared printer. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Click on Add a Printer. Click next and select add a network printer. Select browse for a printer and click next. After a few moments, you should see your shared printer with the share name. Select the printer and continue through the rest of the installation. You should be able to use the printer from that computer. If your printer is connected to a computer, you must have that computer on to use it on the network. If your printer is connected to an Ethernet switch you will be able to use the printer as long as the printer and switch is turned on. If this does not help try to be more specific, and I will clarify the instructions.

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Wrt54gx2 won't stay powered up


Has the AC jack been damaged in the Linksys, due to pulling of the cord? Try wiggling the plug at the rear of the linksys to verify the connection. Check, reseat ALL cables. If it's connected to the ISP modem, can you use a Ethernet cable on the Linksys to the computer to verify signal? It may be bad, hard to say for sure.

How to reset my wrvs4400n wireless router


You'll need to hold the reset button in for 15 seconds or so. It should then reset. You should be able to connect it to your PC or laptop with a cable (wireless won't work) and when you open an internet browser, you should be taken to the configuration screen.

I can,t set up my linksys it won,t work . Help !! I got another Laptop


You will need to provide a better description such as the model number of your Linksys. If it is a Linksys router or WAP you can point your browser to http://192.168.1.1/ and enter in your login information. If this is the first time you've attempted to login to the Linksys router/WAP the default login is either blank or "admin" and the password is "admin".

I am afraid, PSUS4 is an older model of print server , which supports only ordinary printers. All in ones are not supported by PSUS4. Linksys have other print server which works with all in one printers. The model number is WPSM54G. Probably you can try that. Also, if the PSUS4 is less than one month old, you can get it replaced with the WPSM54G from the stores itself . The WPSM54G can be used as wired as well as wireless to the router. If you want to use the PSUS4, you may need an ordinary printer like Office jet or laser jet with USB 1.1 version.- Thank you
