Vista is supported for this print server. I just hooked it up at the office this week. I don't see anywhere on linksys where iMac is supported.

On the LinkSys product overview it says that the WPSM54G Wireless Print Server requires windows XP or 2000 to install correctly. This doesn't necessarily mean you CANT use it with an iMac, but doing so becomes slightly more of a pain in the rear than it's worth. For more information look up the print server model on the LinkSys webpage. There is a potential solution available there but the directions are unconfirmed so i will not link them here.

I have window 7 64bit and the keyspan software installed fine but the server utility does not recognize the print server. I allowed port 3842 tcp and udp through the windows firewall but still no luck.


for key span server to work with windows 7 install windows xp mode to windows 7 ( this can be downloaded from microsoft website if you have windows 7 pro and above. if you have windows 7 home then install windows virtual pc, start it up and insert a windows xp pro install disk. for info on this google 'workaround to install windows xp mode in windows 7 home premium and home basic') Once you have windows xp mode running, install the keyspan server utility int he virtual machine and setup as usuall. then share the printer. go to windows 7 devices and printers and add a printer, chose a network printer, select the new virtual machine and select the shared printer. In order for the printer to work just start up the keyspan program from windows 7 and print....your welcome.

First, you have to make sure that the printer can print directly connected to the computer.

Second, make sure that you can "ping" the print server while it's connected to the router.

If the printer works when connected to the computer and you can ping the print server, then you just need to change the port in the print server utility. It should be set to LP1 and not LPT. The queue name should be set to L1.

Check also the printer port, and be sure that it's set to USB001 or USB002 Virtual Printer Port.

If same problem occur, try to uninstall and re-install the server utility. Use the link below to download the utility for Vista 64-bit OS:

You may refer to the user manual of GPSU21 or call IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

Thank you and good luck!

When trying to set up Samsung CLP 310 I cannot get the software loaded. Sony notebook VGN SR220J. Server works fine from 2 network connected PC's I've tried it from the disc and the loaction on the HD.


download latest drivers and install with printer unplugged...it will install software to c:\program files\samsung\ and then 2 more folders in you will get the drivers folder - add printer and just do have disk and browse to that folder.

I can not print


I had a similar problem that was caused by my firewall. I was able to get it to print fine but could not get it to scan.

To test, try temporarily disabling your firewall. Bringing up SX Virtual Link then search for devices. If you can find your Canon, that's the key. Silex has instructions on how to get around some of the firewalls on their web site. I had to figure out how to get around AVGs firewall on my own. Check out silexamerica.com.

Reply to this message if it doesn't work or if you need instructions for the firewall problem.

Good luck helena!
