Wireless problems with HP 3180

Hi. My HP 3180 All-in-one prints fine via my netgear wireless print server but, the only problem is that the 3180 scanner function does not work or is not recognized. I've updated the drivers, uninstalled/reinstalled, etc, and have tried many forums but am still having the problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks! Oh well, I'll just plug direct to my laptop when I have to scan I guess; otherwise the wireless printing works great!

    Thanks!

Yes..that scanner issue keeps on popping up. has to do with the print command that's either compatible with the netgear standard, or it isn't..flukey, and not consistent..you might address netgear on this issue, but I've seen it before, actually..

Trying to install HP 2101nw wirelss print server but get message can't find the print server on the wirless network form this machine. I am trying to set this up stand alone , not via a router


The server maybe enabled but you need to navigate on the printer and select a wireless network you want to connect to (just like you would when you connect a computer to a wireless netowrk). Once the printer is connected to the wireless network. try it again

Hi there, can I use the WGPS606 as an AP ? Many Thanks


I understand that you want to use the print server WGPS606 as an access point. Regarding the concern, please note that it is not possible to configure or use this device as AP. This device however can act as as wireless bridge. It can connect wirelessly to the wireless network of your wireless router/ap and provide wired connection.

Hope this helps.

My wGPS606 wont print on my Windows Vista laptop!


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'.

Problem solved.

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 printer.
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 a fix?

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?
