Question about NetGear RP614 Router
Posted by Anonymous on
Topic 1. What do I need to connect a Macintosh to the PS110 Print Server? A PostScript printer with a parallel interface, a Mac running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (NETGEAR products are not supported for earlier versions.), and Ethernet cables to connect the Print Server to the printer, and the Print Server to your Macs, and to a router. NETGEAR's RP614 router is known to work connecting the PS110 to the Internet with Macs. Topic 2. How do I avoid losing my network configuration when restarting my Mac? When changing theMacOS configuration it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9.x) or Network Location (MacOS 10.x) settings instead of changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). That way you can be sure the changes will not be lost after rebooting. To Create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select File > Configurations > New Configuration. 3 . Type a meaningful name for your new configuration (e.g., NETGEAR Wireless Router). 4 . Make your changes to the AppleTalk or TCP/IP settings. 5 . When closing AppleTalk or TCP/IP choose Save Changes. Whenever making Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open File > Configurations or press Command-K. Changes in Configurations are saved after rebooting. To Create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. Click Internet & Network > Network. The Network Settings window displays. 4. If the window is locked, click the Lock icon in the lower left to unlock the Network window. (You may be asked for a username and password.) 5. Click the pull down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select New Location. 7. Type a name for your new location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes window displays. 10. Click Apply to keep the configuration changes for the newly-created location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Mac to the PS110 Print Server? For MacOS 8.6 and 9.x 1. Follow the instructions in the NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-PostScript printers with Macs on the PS110 Print Server.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer to be used with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Chooser from Apple Menu. 6. Select LaserWriter 8. 7. Select the PostScript Printer to use. (This is probably the description for the PS110 Print Server and may have a name like ?PSD90335?. This name may be different on your computer.) 8. Click Setup. 9. Click Select PPD. 10. Select your printer from the Printer Descriptions list. 11. Close the Chooser. 12. Click OK. A message displays: ?You have changed your Desktop Printer.? You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet. For MacOS 10.x 1. Follow the instructions in the printed NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server.

Select Local AppleTalk Zone from the second pull down menu below. 9. Click the Print Server from the list in the window. PSD90335 ? PostScript Printer in the case of this test. 10.
