Results of attempting to connect the Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 and the Canon MF6550 multifunction laser printer. I was on the phone for several hours last evening (March 9, until about midnight EDT) with a very competent support agent from Netgear (actually in the Philippines). The Netgear setup Wizard software would not connect the Print Server to my Verizon FiOS wireless G router automatically, so the Netgear support agent walked me through it manually. The Print Server connected that way, for sure. Then we manually attempted to connect the Print Server to my Canon MF6550 and subsequently, my HP 932C Deskjet. Neither printer is on the WGPS606 compatible list, nor is either on the known incompatible list. Now we know - both printers are INCOMPATIBLE with the Netgear WGPS606. I bought both the Netgear Print Server and the Canon MF6550 at Staples on Sat., March 8, 2008, based upon the assurance from Staples staff that it would all work. The question now is whether ANY brand of wireless Print Server will work with the Canon MF6550, or do I have to return this printer and get either a Canon with built in networking (ethernet or wireless) or switch to the Brother equivalent (MFC 8870DW). If I get a (multi-function) printer with built-in Ethernet networking, does the Ethernet capability bypass the USB incompatibility problem, or will the problem remain?

How do I install print shop 3.5 on Vista Home?


Insert the disc into the DVD drive in your computer. The installation should begin automatically or give a pop-up asking you what you would like to do. Select Run Setup.exe. Note: If the installation does not begin automatically follow these steps: Click on Start. Click on My Computer (Computer on Windows Vista and Windows 7) Right Click on the DVD drive containing The Print Shop 3.5 disc. Left Click on Open. Double Left Click on Setup.exe. The installer will now search your computer to make sure you have the required Windows Updates in order to install The Print Shop 3.5. If it detects that you are missing an update the installer will prompt you to install these now. Once the updates are complete the installer will move to the next step automatically. From here you should follow the on screen prompts to complete the installation.

Do a reset on the print server. To do this, hold in the reset button on the back, unplug, then plug in and continue to hold for 10 seconds. Your setup should now detect the print server

Installation wizard does not locate the WPSM54G


hello!

what is the model number of your printer? if your setup cd is not detecting your printserver, try the ff:

-- while pc and printserver connected to the router and your printserver connected to your printer. try to reset the printserver for 30sec. Is it printing? If yes, do you see any IP address on the print out

-- If no, unplug the power for 5 seconds and plug the power back in of the printserver then try again to run the setup cd. you may also check your routers dhcp server table if its detecting the printserver

-- if printserver still not detected ty to connect printserver directly to your computer

-- search if you have bi admin utility on your setup cd and install it on your pc

-- manually assign static ip address on the printserver using the bi admin utility and on the pc

-- if successful, connect printserver and pc back to the router and check if you can ping the ip address of your printserver

Persever. Change your usb points, and at the last resort get the cord from your old printer and use this type of connection. Go slowly thorugh the disc step by step and make sure you delete any previous installations of the print file in the control panel.

Windows Server wont load


You need to install the raid drivers during the OS installation otherwise the setup program will not recognise it. At the beginning of the setup, just after the black screen disappears and the setup screen appears, it will say at the bottom: "Press F6 if you want to install third party RAID / SCSI drivers" or something along those lines. That's where you dive for the F6 button and install the drivers from floppy disk. I'm sure you know where to get the drivers from, if not, do reply and ask. Good luck!
