Question about Linksys WPSM54G Print Server

2 Answers

Installation wizard does not locate the WPSM54G

Installed the WPSM54G following the instructions but when the installation wizard searches for it in the network doesn't locate it after a long time.
both pc and WPSM54G are in the same LAN of a Cisco 831 router and I can see the broadcasts coming out from the wizard and ethernet LEDs of the PS shwos traffic but the wizard does not locate any device
I tried many tests: without the router through a direct ethernet cable, another PC, etc.
Any suggestions ?

    Many thanks serra_baby, the printer is HP Laserjet 1022 and I configured the router to accept DHCP requests and the Print Server acquired one, then I checked the IP and pointed it with a browser and finish the installation manually but saving a static IP

    Seems the wizard is not working properly to found devices with

    Now I have the print server configured and cannot make it print, but this is another story ......

    Thanks again,

what is the model number of your printer? if your setup cd is not detecting your printserver, try the ff:

-- while pc and printserver connected to the router and your printserver connected to your printer. try to reset the printserver for 30sec. Is it printing? If yes, do you see any IP address on the print out

-- If no, unplug the power for 5 seconds and plug the power back in of the printserver then try again to run the setup cd. you may also check your routers dhcp server table if its detecting the printserver

-- if printserver still not detected ty to connect printserver directly to your computer

-- search if you have bi admin utility on your setup cd and install it on your pc

-- manually assign static ip address on the printserver using the bi admin utility and on the pc

-- if successful, connect printserver and pc back to the router and check if you can ping the ip address of your printserver

    Will not load

    Open up your PC. And from the windows menu, left Click to open, Settings, Control panel, and the Add
    Hardware wizard. From the Add hardware wizard, install your ASUS hard drive. Just follow the instructions. If you get it installed, then it a job well done. Most of the time, Asus is a supported item of Windows XP, Vista, & 7
    However, if you are prompted to have your own CD to
    get it installed. Just have your download from the
    Internet. Just type at the Search engine blank (Free
    download Asus (90N804SH021) Hard drive software
    installer). Once you have your download, go back to
    your PC menu. Click open, the download and follow
    the instruction to have it installed. Then, have your
    test on the Asus harddrive.

    Cannot see WPSM54G wireless router after configuring it correctly.

    It's pretty sad. This device doesn't support Mac and apparently it doesn't support Windows either! I expect a lot more from Linksys. It seems like this is a common problem yet they offer no clear solution on their web site. Do you think maybe Linksys is going out of business and isn't going to support their products anymore?

    Sanyo VPC-s500 i cant get it to install drivers or find them so i can upload pictures to my computer

    The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
    First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
    Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
    Select USB
    Select PC
    Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.
    Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show. You can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
    If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
    Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
    Select Administrative Tools
    Computer Management
    On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
    Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open
