Nevermind... took a bit of playing with it to figure out how it wanted the IP address info configured

Printer Server for Windows 7

For anyone who gets frustrated by Linksys or other brand print servers under Windows 7, try the Netgear WGPS606. Fastest & easiest setup I've ever experienced under any operating system.

"took a bit of playing with it to figure out how it wanted the IP address info configured"

Care to tell me how you did this. I am having the same problem and can't figure it out. I can print through the print server with my 2 notebooks which have xp. And can print a test page when I access the print server through my browser from within windows 7. Example - open browser, access print server via ip address. Do a print test page via this and it works. But when I right click on the printer and try to do a test page nothing prints.

Thanks,

Mike

I too would like to know how you were able to solve the problem. I get an error message when trying to load the software that say "OS Not Supported" I contacted Linksys support via live chat and was told they don't have a wireless print server that is supported by Windows 7. No upgrade driver available for my WPSM54G. No idea when they might have it or if they will.

I need to know too. I tried configuring it every which way on both my laptops with windows 7 and neither works! I have to use my mini to print now and its very inconvenient.

I tried to install new printer - tcpip port, and yet doesn't work

I've had the same problem with a linksys WPSM54G Print Server. I returned it. The Netgear PS, WGPS606 is not compatible with my printer, a Canon MP830.

Does anyone know of another print server that would work with Windows 7?

Wireless USB print server?
I'm trying to find a wireless USB print server that just WORKS. I tried a TRENDNet TEW-MFP1 It's a piece of junk that requires you to use their software. I want something like an old JetDirect... I can point any printer under any OS to a raw TCP/IP port, and the print jobs come out.

HP 2101nw wireless print server
I have been using this device but after upgrading to win 7 64 bit home premium. HP has no driver for win 7 and no plans to write one. Does anyone have a driver or a work-around for this configuration? If not, can anyone recomend a device that will work with 7 and hp printers?

I get an error saying OS not supported. Also, I am running XP on my other partition, so I don't think exporting drivers will fly.
