Question about Kodak (856-3678) Print Server

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 Now their answers and help are gone and have been replaced by the same comments over and over again from s4u311??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.

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

    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"

Normally you'd have a disc that came with the printer. It not only has a driver on it, which you may or may not need, but... it also will have a program for the computer to configure the printer for you.

You will probably find that the first time you need to connect to the printer with a cable FIRST to do the actual setup. That sets up the connection, printer wireless name, etc, and adds the printer to your list.

Then once that's all done and you disconnect the cable and reboot everything, once the printer comes on it looks for the router/hub, then you generally have a green light there indicating it's connected. Then you can print or do a test page from the computer.

If you don't have that disc, you should be able to download it from the manufacturer's website in Support and/or Downloads.

Good Luck!

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER
These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP Laserjet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc.
This example is for a network HP Laserjet printer.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network).

Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0
If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer’s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Recently got two new laptops and have a existing Dell 3 in 1 photo printer all wireless. Loaded the printer software on the laptops I can print using the usb cable but it will not print wireless not sure...


make sure that both your computer and printer are both on the same network. after connect them you are most likely going to have to add the printer to the laptops. go into your control panel where it says hardware and sound and click on printer. there will be an option to add printer up at the top, click that and a new window will open up, click on the add wireless or bluetooth printer and follow the steps.

Hello, How do I connect my Epson stylus PHOTO px700 to my laptop?


NETGEAR’s 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server with 4-port Switch allows you to connect one or two printers to your existing wireless network, without using unsightly Ethernet cables. Simply place your printers anywhere in your home or office that works best for you, plug them into the print server’s USB ports, and the Smart Wizard set-up function automatically guides you through configuration. Then you can send your business documents to a high-end color printer, and your kids’ homework to a black-and-white printer. The print server also acts as a wireless Ethernet bridge, connecting a cluster of up to four PCs and laptops without requiring dedicated wireless adapters. I t employs powerful WEP Encryption and WPA-PSK to keep your wireless network secure, and interoperates with all standard b and g wireless devices. All this in a sleek, space-saving stand-up case.

Connect two computers to one printer


Some WIFI printers have an activation button on the printer so that it is "one-touch" recognized by the router so that all devices can use the printer wirelessly. If yours doesn't, it will need to be programmed using the secure information..

Are you able to print from any other computer in the network ?
If you are able to print from any other computer that means your print server is set up properly.
On your laptop you will need to add port for the printer.
make sure that the printer drivers are installed.

Hi,

Let me recap, just one more time.
Your wireless router,
You updated the firmware(most have out dated firmware from sitting in the warehouse)
Broadcast SSID
Using WPA-PSK(TKIP) Security
Mixed mode(b and g, n if available) This is needed for wireless devices to work properly.
Channels 1, 6 or 11. These channels are the channels most wireless devices work on the best(I use channel 11)
Now for the printer. Download and run this patch to completely remove the printer from your computer.

The patch is password protected. The way around the password protected zip file is to open the zip file with Winrar or 7zip(.exe file)

Restart your computer.

After router is done, now setup your wireless print server/printer.
3300 Utility
3300 Firmware
Attach the 3300 to your computer using the USB Cable and insert the 3300 disk. Follow the instructions. It should ask you for the network ID, type of security and password.
Download the proper drivers.
XP Drivers
Vista 32-bit Drivers
Install the drivers, choose network, choose I'm using a wireless print server(if you do not see this, then choose add printer and you should see it then) and follow the instructions.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

My wGPS606 wont print on my Windows Vista laptop!


I just found a way to enable the HP P1006 with a different print server (Liveprint on Orange Livebox router). Perhaps this might work with the WGPS606 wireless print server?

I set up the P1006 via the print server as instructed (I'm using Vista 32 Home Premium) but no test page would print.

BUT!! (with thanks to another another forum):

I selected printers, then right-clicked on the wireless printer I'd just installed and selected 'properties'.

Under the 'Ports' tab I deselected 'Enable bidirectional support'.

Problem solved.

Hope this helps.

let me inform you that this printer is not compatible with any wireless print server. The drawback is that it is not possible to network such printers. A printer needs a steady flow of data, which is easily accomplished when it is connected directly to a PC, but cannot be guaranteed when the printer is connected via a LAN. Also, these technologies require intensive handshaking between the driver and the printer.
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's memory and processing power."

Sorry I can't be more upbeat - but its probably useful to know that someone at HP thinks the job's imposible - unless someone out there has a fix?
