Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a MacIntosh computer and wanted to install NetGear WGPS606 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server w/4 Port Switch to serve a Canon Pixma MP830. The hangup is the IP address assigned to the printer. I had technical help yesterday but nothing the helper had me do brought up the correct IP address. I also don't know how to proceed even when I do have the IP address. The directions online are very complicated for someone who isn't a techie and I'm definitely not.

You can assign ip with 2 method 1 is manually and other is automatic .
If you set manualy ip you must need to set gateway as your printers and other computer's gateway.
Subnetmask is same in all system.
For example if your netgear lan ip is 192.168.1.1 then your printer ip 192.168.1.5 sunet mask as 255.255.255.0 and gateway is 192.168.1.1
Other computer's ip 192.168.1.6 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
Make sure the printer driver installed and it is in network.
IF you want ip from netgear then you need to enable dhcp in it.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.1.1 or
http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Then click on dhcp then enable save settings and restart netgear.
Then in printer set ip get automatic from router.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello, How do I connect my Epson stylus PHOTO px700 to my laptop?


NETGEAR’s 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server with 4-port Switch allows you to connect one or two printers to your existing wireless network, without using unsightly Ethernet cables. Simply place your printers anywhere in your home or office that works best for you, plug them into the print server’s USB ports, and the Smart Wizard set-up function automatically guides you through configuration. Then you can send your business documents to a high-end color printer, and your kids’ homework to a black-and-white printer. The print server also acts as a wireless Ethernet bridge, connecting a cluster of up to four PCs and laptops without requiring dedicated wireless adapters. I t employs powerful WEP Encryption and WPA-PSK to keep your wireless network secure, and interoperates with all standard b and g wireless devices. All this in a sleek, space-saving stand-up case.

Installation assistant cannot detect print server


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?

Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 won't install correctly


I finally got my WGPS606 installed - unfortunately, it's just on one computer so far, but that computer is on the network and is not wired. Here are a few tips:

1. hold the reset button (little pinhole) until you see some action going on with the lights (I forget exactly what happened, but after a while there was a change) - this served to "reset" my WGPS606's IP Address, which I had changed during setup.

2. connect your computer to the server with an ethernet cable and type in http://192.168.0.102 (the default IP Address of the server)

3. login with the default username and password:
username: admin
password: password

4. once logged in, you will see all of the WGPS606's information. At that point, you should be able to change the IP Address of the server to what you want it to be, but I think you can proceed to run the setup on the installation CD (or the installation program from the WGPS606's Netgear website) and it should be recognized on the wireless network.

In my case, I want to mention that when the initial setup failed for me, I used the MAC address on the back of the server. After steps 1-4, my server was finally on the wireless network by the installation program, however, the MAC address was 1 digit off from what was on the server. The MAC address on the back of the server was the PHYSICAL MAC address, whereas the WIRELESS MAC address was one digit higher (last set of numbers. For instance, on the back of the server, the MAC address ended in ":01" and I found out that this was the physical MAC address. The wireless MAC address was exactly the same, except the last 2 digits were ":02."

Another thing to note was that after the server was recognized, it told me to reserve a specific IP Address other than what I had previously set - I didn't realize that it chose it for you. Anyway, just keep that in mind. After this, everything worked like a charm - well, I have yet to set up the other computers to connect to the server, but at least I have one!

Hope this helps!

The MP830 does not include the ability to do Wireless Network printing. You can however, connect this printer to one of your Windows or Mac PCs and share it on the network, which is wireless, therefore accomplishing the same thing.

1) Install the Drivers and Software that came with your Printer.
2) Go to the Control Panel > Printers & Faxes
3) Right-click your printer and click "Sharing"
4) Choose Share this Printer, and give it a name.
5) You can then on, use the Add Printer Wizard on any other Windows PC and install it by searching for network printers.

Step 1 is the same for Mac
2) Go to System Preferences > Sharing
3) Check the box for Printer Sharing
4) Any Mac on the network can see it!!
5) Added treat: go to http://apple.com/bonjour to install bonjour for Windows, using this software you can print using any Mac printer on any PC

Wireless printing


  • I presume that the printer is not directly connected to the PC. Now if the Printer is connected to the USB port on the router, you have to check if the router detects it and the printer server is online. Also since u changed the router, you will have to change the settings in your PC to reflect the IP address of the printer server (the router.)
  • If the MP830 is connected wirelessly to the router, make sure that the IP address of the printer is in the same subnet as your laptop. (Check the configuration settings, they can be configured using a browser by pointing it to the IP address of your printer)

Hi, Through what method would you connect the printer to the netgear? I have looked at the information on both products and the netgear has no Print Server and the Printer has no Ethernet or wireless. If your printer has no ethernet or wireless and your router has no print server then the answer to your question is NO. HOWEVER: You can install the printer on any one of the pc's and then set it up as a SHARED PRINTER. If you would like further information on doing this please let me know and I will post it here. Thanks
