PS101 Netgear Print Server quit working

For some unknown reason, it appears that my PS101 has either lost it's IP address or reset to something outside of my normal parameters. There does not seem to be a reset feature. Any ideas?

Jetdirect ex default ip


Usually it it set to pick up IP from DHCP/BootP.
If someone had assigned a fixed IP and it is now unknown. It is better to reset the print server to factory default by pushing the little reset button,
Then check you DHCP server for the newly assigned IP address.

You will need a version of HP Jetadmin or HP webjetadmin to configure this print server

My netgear ps101 went sleeping, cannot be ping. But after power on/off it's ok, then not long after that it went sleeping again.


Somewhere in the setup instructions type the ipaddress of the router in internet explorer and if you have the correct credentials to get in this device you may set the sleep time or shut that off

Why so slow?!!!??


Matt C., I bet that your 'IT guy' installed the Netgear software on each PC. He should have installed it on only 1 PC and used it to set the IP, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway on the PS101. Use the 'Printers and Faxes/Properties/Ports' tab of the printer to get the IP, you'll need it in a minute. Download and expand the appropriate Drivers for the printer, or have the CD ready. Remove all instances of the Netgear software from the PC's if your PS101 is configured (Use the 'Control Panel / Add-remove software') Once the PS101 is configured, you can install the 'network printer' on all 3 PC's using the following method (assuming WinXP): Click 'Start' Click 'Settings' Click 'Printer & Faxes' Click 'Add A Printer' When the 'Wizard' opens up, click 'Next' Make sure the option for 'Local printer attached to this computer' is selected, but DO NOT select 'Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer' Click 'Next' Click 'Create a new port' Using the 'drop down' select 'Standard TCP/IP port' Then click 'Next' twice In the field 'Printer Name or IP Address' enter the IP that your 'IT guy' assigned during the initial setup (You should have that from the 'Printers and Faxes/Properties/Ports' that I referenced earlier. Click 'Next' You should see 'Standard: Generic Network Card', if so click 'Next' then 'Finish' The 'Add Printer Wizard' should open. Click 'Have Disk' and browse to the folder that you expanded the drivers for the printer into. Click 'Print Testpage' Click 'Finish' You should be printing a lot faster. Let me know if this doesn't work, or isn't clear!
