Question about Linksys Wireless-G WPS54GU2 Print Server
After starting the Add Printer Wizard, the trick is to select Local Printer
Attached to This Computer. This is counter-intuitive, but you're not
connecting to the printer using MICROSOFT Networking, so MS doesn't consider
this to be a network printer. Don't select Automatically Detect with Plug
On the Select a Printer Port screen, choose Create a New Port. Type of Port
= Standard TCP/IP Port.
Be sure that the printer server and the printer are ready before proceeding.
For Printer Name or IP Address enter the print server's IP address. The
protocol is LPR. You'll need to get the Queue Name from the print server
documentation. It's probably "lp" (that's a lower-case el, not a capital

Contrary to the on-line advice that I have found, the Linksys wireless print server WPS54G is compatible with Windows 7. It is the installation program that is not compatible. While not as bad as the early days of setting hardware dip switches, the print server must be installed manually. Following are the many steps that I took to install my WPS54G to work with Windows 7; lengthy, but worth it.
1. Connect your printer to the PC using a USB cable and USB port. Allow the printer to install. Print a test page. Even though you just installed the printer, check for an updated printer driver at the manufacturer's website. I did this late in the process before I could get the printer to work. It installed an HP universal driver.
2. Set the printer as the default.
3. If you do not know the IP address of your print server, access the router using your browser. See your manual for instructions. For a Linksys, type the default IP router address 192.168.1.1 into the browser address bar. If you have done this in the past, set up your router security. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin.
4. Connect your print server to the PC using a USB cable and USB port.
5. On the router locate the DHCP Client Table and determine the IP address of the print server. You might have to refresh the table. The default is probably 192.168.1.78.
6. Access the print server using your browser and the IP address of the print server. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin. Set up security to match the router, SSID, password, type of encryption, etc.
7. Go to "Devices and Printers" (from the start menu), on the default printer icon that you just installed, right click and open "Printer Properties." Click on the "Ports" tab.
8. Click on "Add Port." Select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click on "New Port." Click "Next." Add the IP address of the print server (probably 192, 168.1.78) and call the port whatever you want. Click "Next."
9. After the port configures and you get the "Port Settings" tab (you can also get there by clicking on "Configure Port), change the protocol to "LPR" and click "LPS byte counting enabled." Use "p1" or P2" etc. for the "queue name."
10. Disconnect the print server from the USB port and let it sit for 30 seconds.
11. Disconnect the printer from the USB port.
