Before running the PS Wizard in Vista, right-click on the icon for PS Wizard and select "run as administrator". This will clear the bind errors and wrong segment errors many times - this only applies to vista.

I had a similar problem.

I had original printer install disk to help me with the problem

I went to PSAdmin and changed the DCHP Setting to allow my router to give it a new ip address.

I then added the printer using vista's add printer wizard: I used the add network printer and used the new ip address the PSAdmin gave me: I installed driver off disk, but then chose the one vista had already. I also used the "Print server 1 usb" device when asked which device I had installed.

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.

Hello. I have a new Windows 7 machine and cannot figure out how to connect the dp-311p print server to it. The old directions for Windows XP don't seem to work. Help, please?


The wireless printer is somewhere on your "local network".

Access "Control Panel", and access "Printers".
Click "Add Networked Printer", and "browse" your local network to locate the print-server.

Tell us any error-messages that you get, if any.

Trying to install HP 2101nw wirelss print server but get message can't find the print server on the wirless network form this machine. I am trying to set this up stand alone , not via a router


The server maybe enabled but you need to navigate on the printer and select a wireless network you want to connect to (just like you would when you connect a computer to a wireless netowrk). Once the printer is connected to the wireless network. try it again

Netgear ps121 won't print


Possible reason why you cannot print with the print server is because the computer is not getting a valid IP from the router or a firewall is installed in the computer. You have to disable all firewalls installed in the computer.

For the print server setup, please follow the steps below:

Note: Before setting up the print server, make sure that you can print when printer is connected directly to the computer.

1. Wire the print server to router. Check the lights on it. It should have the ACT light on and the Error light off.

2. One way to test if the printer would work with the print server is to reset the print server for 3 to 5 seconds while it is powered on and after you release the button, the printer should automatically print the IP address of the print server.

Note: If the printer did not print, there is a possibility that they are not compatible. However, you may still continue to try to set up the print server.

3. Install the PS121 software.

a. Power on your computer, let the operating system boot up completely, and log in as needed.
b. Insert the Resource CD for the PS121 into your CD-ROM drive. The CD main page shown at the right will load.
c. Click Install Software.
d. Click Next and follow the software installation utility prompts to complete the software installation.
e. When prompted, restart your computer to complete the installation.
f. When your computer restarts, click Finish to run the Print Server Setup Wizard.

4. Run the Print Server Setup Wizard to Set Up a Fixed IP Address for the PS121.

a. The Print Server Setup Wizard screen should be displayed.
b. Click Next to proceed. The Print Server Wizard will now search your network for the PS121. If the Print Server Setup Wizard cannot find your PS121, check the network connections and status lights on the PS121.
c. The “Server Name” and the “IP Address” your network assigned to the PS121 are displayed. Click Next to proceed to the device name screen.
d. You can enter a descriptive Device Name and Domain Name or accept the defaults. Click Next to proceed to the IP Address configuration screen. The Print Server Wizard displays a recommended static IP address setting for the PS121. This is usually fine.
e. Click Next to proceed.
f. Click Finish to exit the Print Server Setup Wizard. This completes the configuration of the PS121 for operation on your network.
g. Click Yes to run the Add Printer Port Wizard. Follow the instructions in the next section for using the this wizard to set up each computer to use the PS121.

To set up each computer to use the PS121, please follow the instructions below:

1. Use the NETGEAR Add Printer Wizard to set up each PC to use the PS121.
a. When the Print Server Setup Wizard finishes, you are prompted to run the Add Printer Port Wizard. Click Yes to proceed. Alternatively, from the Windows Start menu NETGEAR Print Server program group, you can run the NETGEAR Add Printer Wizard.
b. After a short delay while the software searches the network for your PS121, the Printer Select window opens and displays the PS121 you have set up.
c. Click Next to proceed to the Port/Printer name screen. Take note of the printer model number listed.

2. Set up the correct printer driver for the printer port.
a. Click Next to proceed to the Port/Printer name screen. Take note of the printer model number listed.
b. Click Next to proceed to the Select Printer screen. If you see the exact printer model number listed as the printer model number from in the previous screen, click it to select it from the list.
c. If prompted, print a test page to verify operation of the printer and the PS121. Then, close any remaining Add Printer Port Wizard or Windows Add Printer Wizard windows.

Use the NETGEAR PS121 Mini Print Server Resource CD to run the Add Printer Port Wizard to set up each PC on you network that you want to use with the PS121. Select the port you added

You may also use the links below as your guide to troubleshoot the print server:

However, if this does not resolve the issue we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Model number of router
2. Model of printer
3. Operating system of computer/s

Samsung ML-2510 doesn't respond....


I solved this problem with windows xp but have yet to solve it with windows 7. what worked for me is hooking up the hp print server to my network switch and to the 2510. Then I installed the 2510 driver using the samsung exe and choosing NO when it asked about installing the driver without the the printer attached. The NO choice continues and installs the driver. Then run the HP printer wizard choose drivers on this computer when you get to that spot. Then choose the 2510 driver and finish up. You may now have 2 2510 installations and may need to delete the default one under printers and set the other as default. This worked on 3 different xp machines for me
