I have a desktop and HP printer on a network with a laptop. I used to be able to print on the network from my printer, now I can't. The correct printer is check in the control panel on the laptop but when I try to check anything in the drop down menu, I get a message that the print spooler is not started. I have stopped and restarted but still get the same message. This problem also started about the time I upgraded my security software.

I just found a way to enable the HP P1006 with a different print server
(Liveprint on Orange Livebox router). Perhaps this might work with the
WGPS606 wireless print server?
I set up the P1006 via the print server as instructed (I'm using Vista 32 Home Premium) but no test page would print.
BUT!! (with thanks to another another forum):
I selected printers, then right-clicked on the wireless printer I'd just installed and selected 'properties'.
Under the 'Ports' tab I deselected 'Enable bidirectional support'.
Hope this helps.
let me inform you that this printer is not compatible with any wireless
print server. The drawback is that it is not possible to network such
printers. A printer needs a steady flow of data, which is easily
accomplished when it is connected directly to a PC, but cannot be
guaranteed when the printer is connected via a LAN. Also, these
technologies require intensive handshaking between the driver and the
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print
commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's
memory and processing power."
Sorry I can't be more upbeat - but its probably useful to know that
someone at HP thinks the job's imposible - unless someone out there has
I suggest that you just buy an HP printer that supports wireless or ethernet so it can just get itself an IP address and will not rely on any Windows Network Shares to let you print. A print server will be over the top for just one printer.
great if ur laptops r acessing the internet ... perform the followings ....
> open the page of the print server and try to match the wireless settings of the router on it and u will be able to use the printer as well ....
the dell must be set to host or peer to peer on the network for the other computer to find it through tcp/ip or ipp protocol. it comesdown to software set up which is always the biggest headache second to the userintroducing a problem. good luck
Indeed, you don't need the print server. Since your HP 6310 already has an integrated network port, you may setup and use it on your laptop the same way you do with your desktop. If you can browse the Internet wirelessly with your laptop, you should also be able to print.
How to check the print server is in the wireless network or not!!
Check under the Router Setup page Router's ip address...
Check if you are able to ping the Print Server Ip address....Since it the router will assign a ip address from DHCP range..
If you are able to ping the router's ip address and the print server ip address then the print server is in the Wireless LAN...
Try the following steps.
1. Go to run and type "cmd" press enter
2. type ipconfig.
3. Check the range of ip address...if its 192.168.0.XX
4. Try pinging that ip address..
5. If able to ping the router and print server.. Then the wireless network is fine...
Somehow some of the printer's don't work with some of the print servers.. Check if D-link does support the printer or not!!!! for this particular model of the router...
