    I am grateful for your response. Unfortunately, I am unsure of the meaning of th following sentence:

    "Make sure PrintServer is configured on the network with the same wireless settings of your router and with a manually assigned IP address which is in range of the router's IP segment."

    I understand what an IP adress is, but I'm confused about the phrase:
    "which is in range of the router's IP segment."

    Sorry to be such a novice

The software that came with the WPS54G model is not (yet)compatible with Vista systems. This model is not listed on the Vista-ready devices from Linksys' website (www.linksys.com/vista). The behavior more likely a result of a software incompatibility.

For PrintServer network setup, you may still use the CD on a non-Vista system (XP, Win2000 or lower). Or, by installing it manually by accessing it's web interface.

To make your Vista working with the printserver WITHOUT the use of the PrintServer CD, do the ff:
1. Make sure PrintServer is configured on the network with the same wireless settings of your router and with a manually assigned IP address which is in range of the router's IP segment.
2. Make sure that computer can print locally to the printer (e.g. via USB connection to the printer).
3. When computer can surf the net and connected to the router's network (wired or wireless), follow the steps from this article and make sure Printer is showing up as Online.

Goodluck!

WPS54G Printer Server Setup


I bought a Linksys Wireless-G WPS54G printer server and trie to put it in my home network. Following the instruction from the manufacturer and spent many hours, I still couldn't make the printer server work. There was no problem to get the IP address from my DHCP server using the wired connection. But when I pulled off the network cable and tried the wireless connection, I got "connection failed" error at the last step to install the printer server. I checked my router's client monitor and found the printer server did get the dynamic IP address wirelessly. When I pinged that IP address, there was no response at all from the printer server. In another word, the printer server couldn't communicate with other devices in wireless mode in the network. I searched the Internet and found there were many users had same problem and couldn't resolve the issue even from the manufacturer technical support. As a last resort before I was going to send back the printer server, I switched the network router to one of a different brand. My previous router was manufactured by BUFALLO INC and the new one was made by D-Link. After I rerun the installation following the instruction, the "connection failed" error was gone. The printer server could work finally.

The tip here is: Try a different brand router when there is a connection failure problem for installing the WPS54G printer server, if possible.

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH VISTA?


WPS54G should work with the VISTA also.
But the disc will not run on the VISTA.
What you can do , you can set up the printer manually.
Once you are able to set up the print server with the router.
You will need to add printer port on the computer.

Linksys WPSM54G No Device


Do a reset on the print server. To do this, hold in the reset button on the back, unplug, then plug in and continue to hold for 10 seconds. Your setup should now detect the print server
