Question about NetGear PS121 Print Server

Can't get Netgear PS121v2 to work on my laptop

I installed this server successfully on my Desktop PC for my HP DeskJet F2100. However, when trying to set the server up on my Laptop I get a message that says it was not able to download successfully. I'm not sure why. My printer shows up, I click on it, the set up wizard starts downloading the driver and then after a few minutes I get the above message and it also tells me to restart the computer and try again. I've tried it several times and nothing. Please help!!! :o/

    I can install the driver software but it does not stay resident, it does not show up on the tool bar, nor does it show up in the installed software list. All of this happened after Vista did an upgrade. It worked fine before that.

I finally figured it out myself. The problem is that when you uninstall the print server software, it does not do it correctly. I used regedit to manually remove the server software and reinstalled, and all is well. Hope this helps.

You need to create a new Port rather than using an existing port for adding a new printer. You will need to know the IP address of the PS121 print server BEFORE you start this (you will need to enter this information manually). New port type that worked for me was: Standard TCP/IP Port.

Netgear ps121v2 Smart Wizard does not appear

If you are running WIndows 7 64 bit, you need to run the 64 bit version of the installer. Look in the directory ...\bin\driver\MFP\Utilityx64
Also in, Windows 7 you need to run the install wizard as administrator, since it is installing drivers.Right click on SetupWizard.exe and select "Run As Asministrator".

I cant install the driver of HP Deskjet F2100 series, HP Deskjet F4100 series printer to my new PC which is Windows 7

Are you trying to use the CD? If so go to and see if there are Windows 7 drivers available for the printer (be sure to note whether you have 32 or 64-bit Windows 7).

One page wasted before print out

Hi Ontheedge,

I really hate suggesting it is a Netgear issue, and dump it, Edge, but most of the posts I found on that Print Server is not good. I would check for a setting in the Manger software, but not sure where it is. These link suggest it is a Netgear issue.
