    my PSUS4 indicates printer out of paper when attached to my Zebra 2746e

    I'm seeing the same problem. I've used a PS101 with my 2746es successfully, though it can be finiky to get going at first.

    Dell 2130cn printer connected to LinkSys PSUS4 print server. Ethernet LAN with Dlink DI624 router and several XP machines. Static ip addresses all around. When connected to XP machine with USB cable, I can configure printer and I can print. Test page shows configuration changes. I can ping print server (192.168.0.90)but not printer(192.168.0.91). (rumor has it server can't handle bi-directional printer.)

SOURCE: What brand of print server would be compatible with a linksys broadband router and the HP printer?

You asked for any advice. If you want to use a server, you must already have at least a home network set up (it could be wireless or hard-wired). Yes, stand-alone "print servers" are notorious for only supporting certain printers. If you don't know this before you buy, you may find yourself returning your print server to the store. However, instead of a standalone print server, have you considered setting up one of the computers in your network as a "print server"? That's the way it used to be done. That's the way my own network is set up. You would set up your multifunction printer as connected directly to one of the computers in your network. Enable "printer sharing" on that computer. Then do the following on all other computers in the network for which you desire access to the printer: Add a network printer. If asked for drivers, get them off the printer's installation CD.

SOURCE: I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but


Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from Epson.com/support. During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C3150 compatability with print server

I have a same print server but it works with my Epson printer. Well most print server manufacturers claim that their device should work but in reality they are still subjected to hardware compatibilities some printers will not work, I suggest you just try the same manufacturer as your printer, it may be a bit expensive than universal print servers but atleast your guaranteed that they will work and if it doesn't you have one company to deal with instead of you getting a run around by both companies on who'se fault is it why and why it's not working as they claim.

Anyways here's a link for HP's "wired" printservers.

Sound like the printer driver device is locked up. Try printing locally first and then on the network. Try reloading the lastest driver for each device.

SOURCE: Any suggestions on how to get the MP240 printing

Hello.

Your print server is over 6 years old and is fully compatible with: Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP (from Cisco / Linksys documentation).

But, a Windows 7 laptop will not work with the print server, although your Windows XP PC will.

Hope this helps.

Computer not recognizing print server


If you connect your printer directly to your computer, were you able to print? Make sure that there is no firewall enabled in your computer (Double check windows firewall or any personal firewall, that could have been enabled).

PSUS4 problem "talking" to Canon S330


Hi dreaddymck
I need a little more information on the setup. Is there a router in your network? If there is, is your PrintServer connected to the router and your computer is attempting to connect to the printserver through the router? If there is no router and your PrintServer is connected to your printer via the USB port and your computer is connected to one of the ports on the PrintServer via a cat5 cable, I would check to see whether you are actually communicating with the PrinterServer by pinging its IP address from the computer. If the ping is successful, then I would look at the printer properties in your computer's printer control panel and check the port configuration. Usually it is shows the IP address, port 9100 and port protocol is usually set to RAW. Otherwise I would attempt to reinstall the PrintServer using the CD originally provided. It appears to me that the server may not be publishing its IP address on your network.

Network printing


I am afraid, PSUS4 is an older model of print server , which supports only ordinary printers. All in ones are not supported by PSUS4. Linksys have other print server which works with all in one printers. The model number is WPSM54G. Probably you can try that. Also, if the PSUS4 is less than one month old, you can get it replaced with the WPSM54G from the stores itself . The WPSM54G can be used as wired as well as wireless to the router. If you want to use the PSUS4, you may need an ordinary printer like Office jet or laser jet with USB 1.1 version.- Thank you

610N dissapeared no lights, empty EIO, reset no help


If you're seeing it intermittently, try the following:

-remove it completely
-power cycle the printer with it out
-check your contacts (be sure no bent pins, etc)
-Try it in a different slot if you have one (most HP's with an internal jetdirect have 2-3 EIO slots, but since you don't mention what model printer you have I don't know for sure).

If it's not talking after all that, likely the jetdirect is actually dead. It's been known to happen. I wouldn't waste the money on a replacement, you'll have better luck getting an external card and it'll be cheaper, too.

HP sells both the JetDirect 170X and 175X externals; there's also the Linksys PSUS4, D-Link DP-300U, TrendNet TE100-P1P, or Netgear PS101NA. Price will vary between $45-80.
