Connected by USB cable to a Netgear WGPS606 print server. Always worked fine but now does not print. Print page data goes to the print server and then out to the printer. Green light on the printer flashes briefly then stops at steady but no print. Have cycled printer and print server. No joy. Have reset all cartridges and then printed demo page on printer and this works fine. No error message. Any idea what is going on? Seems like the internal memory is receiving the pages but for some reason not kicking off the actual printing. queue monitor shows all jobs queued, spooled and cleared. Help?

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'.
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
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
First, make sure that you can print with the printer connected directly to your computer using a usb cable.
- Make sure the printer driver is installed and you can print with a direct connection - Get the print server's IP Address, NetGear should have already provided you with this info. - If your'e using windows xp, go to control panel > printers and faxes - Right click on the printer icon and go to properties - Click on the PORTS tab - Click on ADD PORT - Highlight Standard TCP/IP Port then click on New Port - Click next - Input the WGPS606 IP Address - Print a test page...
Results of attempting to connect the Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 and the Canon MF6550 multifunction laser printer. I was on the phone for several hours last evening (March 9, until about midnight EDT) with a very competent support agent from Netgear (actually in the Philippines). The Netgear setup Wizard software would not connect the Print Server to my Verizon FiOS wireless G router automatically, so the Netgear support agent walked me through it manually. The Print Server connected that way, for sure. Then we manually attempted to connect the Print Server to my Canon MF6550 and subsequently, my HP 932C Deskjet. Neither printer is on the WGPS606 compatible list, nor is either on the known incompatible list. Now we know - both printers are INCOMPATIBLE with the Netgear WGPS606. I bought both the Netgear Print Server and the Canon MF6550 at Staples on Sat., March 8, 2008, based upon the assurance from Staples staff that it would all work. The question now is whether ANY brand of wireless Print Server will work with the Canon MF6550, or do I have to return this printer and get either a Canon with built in networking (ethernet or wireless) or switch to the Brother equivalent (MFC 8870DW). If I get a (multi-function) printer with built-in Ethernet networking, does the Ethernet capability bypass the USB incompatibility problem, or will the problem remain?
