Can not connect printer behind the rounter/printserver

I try to add HP Deskject 970Cxi which is connected to Compex NetPassage 28G to my Vista Home Premium notebook without success. Windows just can not see the printer. Same network and printer work well with other notebooks with XP Pro and Vista Ultimate. If I add printer manually, the printer will not response to the print command. The print queue is on for a few minutes before say Error. Notebook can access to internet via wire and wireless without any problem.

Any diff. between Vista Home and others OS which may cause this problem. I try already to turn off the firewall but problem is still there.

Please help

SOURCE: problem with power

Since I don't know the exact circumstances of your power loss, here what I am guessing based on that you wrote.

This may be because the power does not come back cleanly after the power failure. Unfortunately, there is nothing much you can do about it. Since your router does work correctly after you manually reset it, the power supply seems to be fine.

If you have many power failures and find this situation to be annoying, you should look to buy a UPS (Uninterrupted power supply). This kind of devices have a battery that will ensure a clean power output when running, powering up and shutting down. It will protect you from interruptions and voltage fluctuation. You may also benefit from connecting you computer to a UPS because it will keep it running for a couple of minutes after a power failure to allow you to save your work and may also shut it down cleanly automaticaly.

SOURCE: How to turn off the router's firewall

1. Insert the Product CD into your CD-ROM drive. The CD will run automatically.
From the Utilities section, select to install the uConfig utility to your hard disk.
2. When the utility has been installed, double-click on the uConfig icon. The
following screen will appear, click on the Yes button to proceed.
3. Select the router from the products list and click on the Open Web button. To
retrieve and display the latest device(s) in the list, click on the Refresh button.
4. Do not exit the uConfig program while accessing to the web-based interface.
This will disconnect you from the device. Click on the OK button to proceed.
5. At the login page, press the LOGIN! button to enter the configuration page. The
default password is “password”.
6. For the first time login, you will be prompted to select your time zone setting first
before accessing the router’s main web page. Take note that during the next
and subsequent logins, you will not see the System Time Setting page again.
7. You will then reach the web page of your router’s web-based interface.
8. Under the SECURITY CONFIGURATION command menu, click on Firewall
Configuration.

Check the printer's manual if the software of this printer already supports winVista. If it is, you may connect the printer directly to the PC and check if you'll be able to print.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: install CD of compex NetPassage 26G is lost

This router is at least 5 years old, and it does not support the more-secure WPA protocol. On that basis, I would "trash" it.

I checked the COMPEX web-site:

http://www.cpx.com/download.asp

and there is no mention of the '26G', although the '27G' is listed as a "legacy" product.

So, spare yourself a lot of wasted time -- go to the nearest "Boxing Day/Week" big-box store, and buy a new router, with new features, like 'Wireless N' and 'WPA2' support, and install it.
