Question about Linksys WPSM54G Print Server

2 Answers

Installation wizard does not locate the WPSM54G

Installed the WPSM54G following the instructions but when the installation wizard searches for it in the network doesn't locate it after a long time.
both pc and WPSM54G are in the same LAN of a Cisco 831 router and I can see the broadcasts coming out from the wizard and ethernet LEDs of the PS shwos traffic but the wizard does not locate any device
I tried many tests: without the router through a direct ethernet cable, another PC, etc.
Any suggestions ?

    Many thanks serra_baby, the printer is HP Laserjet 1022 and I configured the router to accept DHCP requests and the Print Server acquired one, then I checked the IP and pointed it with a browser and finish the installation manually but saving a static IP

    Seems the wizard is not working properly to found devices with 0.0.0.0

    Now I have the print server configured and cannot make it print, but this is another story ......

    Thanks again,

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

Can't connect to WPSM54G after configuring it


hi sir,

1. first reset the printserver
2. make sure that the printer drivers are installed on the comp.
3. use a w/l comp on which we can go online
4. connect the w/l comp to the print server using ethernet cable and also connect the printer to the print server
5. put the print server cd into the comp and run setup.
6. make sure printer server is near to router and there is no firewall on the comp.
7. the setup will give the ipaddress to print server if not plz assign static ip on the printserver.
8. follow the wizard
9. it will ask u the w/l settings to enter. plz type the exact same n/w name and security password.and apply the settings.
10.after that it will connect u to the print server and u will be able to print if you will not u will find an error to open port.
11.you need to open standard tcp/ip ports for the printserver ipaddress that u have assigned.
12. if u dont knw, u can ask the comp vendor.
13. plz also confifm that the printer is compatible with ur print server.

thanx and regards

Cannot see WPSM54G wireless router after configuring it correctly.


It's pretty sad. This device doesn't support Mac and apparently it doesn't support Windows either! I expect a lot more from Linksys. It seems like this is a common problem yet they offer no clear solution on their web site. Do you think maybe Linksys is going out of business and isn't going to support their products anymore?

I am trying to install a Lexmark, 3in1 p6210


Before plugging in the USB cable you need to install printer software.

If you have the original printer disk install software from disk.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
