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?

DND, Headset, Mute and Speaker lights on. Why does it appear to be dead?

Your phone is probably broken. I have the LG IP8830 witch is a similar model and I'm using it with the SIP firmware. I have never seen my phones come up with a blank screen. You can try re-loading the firmware if you have it. You will also need a TFTP server setup. You can run TFTPD32 on a Windows PC as your tftp server. The following are the steps for re-installing the firmware on the IP8830.

Phone lock-up maybe caused by an error in transport during the
software upgrade. To correct this problem:
1. Disconnect power from the IP Phone.
2. Press and hold the [Up] and 2 button while reapplying
3. Release the buttons when the Message LED extinguishes.
4. When the BootC screen appears, enter the digits 1, 2, 3
and 4.
5. Follow the prompts to configure IP parameters for the IP
6. At the "Server Addr?" prompt, enter the TFTP server
address where the IP Phone can find the BootC firmware.
If already correct, press the [Next] button.
7. At the "Do you want to apply default?" prompt select the
[Yes] softkey to use default or [No] softkey to use
previously assigned parameters.
The IP Phone will reboot and return to normal operation.

Hope this helps

Resor factury shdls router ct524(hardwair)??????No reset button on the back of the modem!!!!!!!!!!!!

The factory reset is completed via the configuration page. Enter the IP address of the router in your browser and then login. For
example, if the IP address is, enter http:// Look for Erase and Reboot and click to reset to factory defaults. Caution! If you reset your device to the factory default, any changes to
parameters will be lost and all parameters will revert to their default values.
Try root at the default username and password unless it was changed. (or root and 12345). I am not aware of a hardware factory reset i.e. pin hole.

IP configuration

You can set three IP parameters from the printer control panel. The available parameters are:
  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Gateway (optional)
The procedure for changing any of the parameters is the same. The procedure for changing the IP Address is given here as an example. Use the same procedure for the other IP parameters.
  1. Make sure the printer is on and paper/ribbon is loaded.
  2. Press the PAUSE key to place the printer in the OFFLINE mode.
  3. Unlock the Front Panel. (DOWN Arrow + ENTER keys at the same time.)
  4. Press the MENU key until the LCD displays "ETHERNET ADDRESS."
  5. Press the DOWN arrow key to access the first segment of the IP address to be changed. (Or press DOWN arrow again to scroll through the Subnet and Gateway segments.)
  6. Press the + (plus) or - (minus) keys to change the segment.
  7. Press ENTER to make the selection. An asterisk appears to the right of the value.
  8. If other IP address segments need to be changed, go to step 5.
  9. When Finished the [Pause] key twice to go ONLINE. This burns the IP information into the printer.
The ethernet configuration is global to the printer, and takes effect immediately.

First, did you pay the bill? Unplug the IPS modem, remove battery, if applicable, unplug TP Link, shut down computer. Ckeck ALL cables reseat, Replace battery, plug in ISP modem, allow it to selftest, plug in TP Link, allow it to selftest, Reboot computer. If you connect ISP Modem directly to PC and it doesn't ID your IP address use this: To assist you. If this doesn't work contact your ISP provider . Try another Wireless Access Point. My ISP, Xfinity, drops from time to time , for no appearent reason, due to a number of outside difficulties.

    HTC Touch lost the WiFi ability

    I think phone needs software reset. Below is the link about performing soft reset and hard reset on HTC touch. Try soft reset first. if it doesn't work, try hard reset. If after hard reset still no success, try to flash firmware. But I think hard reset can resolve the problem. Note, that hard reset will delete the storage entirely, so backup any data befor performing those manipulations.

    1. From the front control panel message, Ready or Ready to Plot, press ENTER.
    2. Press the Up arrow key until I/O Setup appears, and then press ENTER.
    3. Press the Up arrow key until Modular appears, and then press ENTER.
    4. From the front control panel message, Cfg Network=No, press ENTER.

    7. Scroll to Yes, and press ENTER.
    8. Press the Up arrow key until BootP=Yes appears, and press ENTER.
    9. Press the Up arrow key to change to No. Press ENTER (When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP = YES *. The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
    10. Press the UP arrow once to get to the IP byte section.
    11. To change the IP byte, proceed as follows:

The timeout parameter default is 90 seconds. Up to 3,600 seconds can be configured. If set to zero, the timeout feature of the HP Jetdirect print server is disabled; TCP/IP connections will remain open until closed by the server.
    14. Press PREVIOUS repeatedly, until the Ready to Plot or Ready message appears. Refer to the HP Jetdirect Network Interface Configuration Guide to configure the network operating system.
    15. Press the Up and Down arrow keys simultaneously to save the IP address on a 750/755 plotter. (A page should print and the IP addresses will be saved.)

    Wireless configuration problem. It lost parameters I had imposted.

    If you are using a MC909X, after entering the static IP address and WEP key etc. via the Wireless Configuration Editor, you can export the profile you created by going to the Manage Profiles area, tapping and holding the profile name until the menu appears, then select export, it will create a registry file in the Application folder of the device that will persist after a cold boot, and the settings will will not be lost.

    Lost internet connection via cable modem-router-tower

    Alright, start with the basic Gateway IP. That is what i use to access my router's (yeah, we run just a few more computers than normal people) Anyways, If that doesnt work, then the router has been changed beyond a normal spectrum of Ip configurations. Next step is to recontact Linksys and Let them know directly that the IP Address for accessing the router is not working. Meaning you have no Access to the router at all. Almost all routers use the same base access router ip setup. Its rare to find different unless you are like a few people, who find they need to run at least 2 or more routers on the same internet connection because of too many computers.

    Otherwise, follow this link:

    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!
