Question about Kodak (856-3678) Print Server

2 Answers

Wireless set-up for my Kodak Photo printers, "HELP!!"

Sirs,

I have four home computers (2 desk tops and 2 lap tops). I have 2 HP printers ( HP deskjet 460 and a HP office jet pro L7650 all-4-in-one). Now my real jewels are my 2 Kodak Photo printers ( Kodak Pro 1400 Digital Photo Printer and my little Kodak Easy Share Printer Dock series 3) all 4 are USB. I would like all 4 to be wireless and accessible to all for computers & all within 100 feet of the print server location. I have Cox cable with their Router connected to a Linksys (Cisco) N Ultra Range Plus Dual N Band wireless router Mod. # WRT610N. Question is: What is my best pick for a good, wireless, no fuss-no muss Print Server that can handle all 4 with their varied functions. I am an expert with the ONOF switch and that is about my limit!! Any help with this??

V/R

    Excuse me, I do not understand your answer?? The big question was "What Print Sever do I need to buy that will work with the equipment I now have?? Second question is how to connect all so they work properly??

    Can I get a better answer than the last one, please? I do not except that last solution!

    Now it looks like we are starting to see the same page? Iwill keep this open for awhile until I can put it all together. Looking over about 8 e-mails at this point. Boy, that first one back from s4u311 through me for a loop!!

    Be friendly, I am not a Geek nor do I pretend to even come close to this IT stuff!!

    R/Kent

    What about my Kodak photo printers, and can a network have more than one print server??


  • ON-OFF Jul 17, 2008

    OK

    Now you folks have lost me, I was getting e-mails from several helpers in addition to s4u311. Now their answers and help are gone and have been replaced by the same comments over and over again from s4u311??

    I guess I have a question now as how to navagate this FixYa Tech sight??

    What am I doing wrong?

Greetings,

The best recommendation is the Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer with Multifunction Printer Support, drawback is you can only connect one USB printer / multi-function printer (network scanning supported).

The other is the Keyspan 4-port USB PrintServer is a USB 1.1 device for connecting up to 4 USB printers ormultifunctions over a wired or wireless network.

Just check-out the links for more info.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.
FixYa for all your troubleshooting needs.

    When you get to the manufacturers website, that will be the answer for your second question.

    Good day!

    Yes, a network can have more than one Print Server.

    But before deciding to purchase one, get a verification from the manufacturers phone support that it will definitely work and they had tested and proven it in their labs.

    Based on personal experience, what you read on a manufacturer's website sometimes doesn't turn out "as advertised"

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud

New vista windows working with a wireless routerand a new laptop


Well if you want the prints to go through the router and into the printer First, set the printer up for sharing by going to printers and faxes right clicking on the printer choose Sharing Choose share this printer and give it a name, then might have to get a wireless usb for the desktop at a local Wal-mart and the laptop should have wireless, when you get that stuff connect to the wireless network, go to start, printers and faxes, in the left side toward the top you will see a link saying add printer, let the wizard start hit next, choose the bubble beside A network printer, then hit next choose browse for printer hit next it will say searching for printer wait till a list of printers come up and choose the one you want the computers to use.

Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer websites rather then relaying on the old cdroms - they are probarbly outdated and made for XP.
