I have a Epson Photo Stylus R300 and a NetGear WGPS606 spent a long time on the phone with NetGear but they could get the printer to work. It is connected via eathernet to the server and then to the printer via usb. I have studied Epson's troubleshooter with no luck as the instructions the describe are not the same as they are on their own printer

Re: unable to print through the print server
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...
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.

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.
Hi, visit the link below to check the compatibility list of this print server. If your printer is not listed then it means that it has not been tested with this print server and there is equal chances for its nonfunctioning with the print server.

I have the same problem with my stylus C88. Epson never did provide Vista drivers so I have never found a way to get the Epson software to work with Vista. The print driver does work so you will be able to print but you'll have to clean the nozzle manually by pushing the button on the printer rather than using the Epson Monitor. Sorry.
