I tried the Print Server Utility that was loaded from the WPS54GU2 user install disk. Ended up with an AddPort error.
Went ahead and created local printer for printer I was trying to get to (Epson Color Stylus 400). Did a "Printer Properties" on the printer after it is was created and clicked on the "Port" tab. Clicked on the "Add Port" button and selected "Standard TCP/IP Port" from list. Clicked on "New Port" . Wizard came up and clicked "Next" on this screen. I typed in the IP address of my Print Server (with no Port Name) and let it search for a while and it eventually failed. A screen came up requesting "additional port information" so I clicked on the "Custom" button and then clicked on the"Settings" button. Here I typed in the correct port name (which in my case was like LKxxxxxx where the x's are numerics). The IP address is already filed in. I checked the LPR button and made up a Queue Name and typed it into the Queue Name text box.
After clicking OK I tried printing to the printer and everything seemed to work correctly.

Thanks for the guidance but I guess I may have to go back to square one. I renamed the port on the router from the generic LKxxxxxx to Linksys PrintServer and I have not been able to communicate with the printer. I know the printer works because I was able to print from my XP laptop and from the Print Server web page. I wonder how long it will be until Cisco gets an update out for W7? I'll let you know IF I ever get it running...

I did all this but I am not getting anything from my new Toshiba Notebook with Windows 7!! My XP notebook is working fine though. I am at a loss here. Have this:
Printer: HP Deskjet 990c (Did USB direct connection first. Win7 Saw and Installed Driver and Printed fine)
Port Name: LK976996 Default Port Name I Believe.
IP Address: Static IP 192.168.1.78
LPR is Checked
Queue Name: LP1
Checked and Unchecked LPR Byte Count Enabled with no luck either way
SNMP Status not checked
Anyone else have any ideas?

Devie has two ports, one is Parallel port, the other is USB port.
So it might be the "Queue Name" you set is wrong, you can try to
set "Queue Name" is L1 or L2 to see if any difference.

I have the same issue as I have a new Windows 7 machine that is hardwired to my Linksys WPS54G. This is my main office PC and I have other computers throughout the house that are connected wirelessly to the WPS54G. I've tried to create a new port for printing based on the posts from other users but it still won't work. I've run the Linksys configuration and my PC sees the printer server. Am I missing a step?
Here is what I've done
Go to ports
Add new port
Standard TCP/IP Port
Click new port (Wizard comes up)
Enter printer name and IP address ( I enter my IP address for the Print Server 192.168.1.x)- Port name is same as IP Address (does this matter?)
Go to custom settings and set for LPR with Queue name of LP1 (or should it be L1?)
LPR Byte count box checked
Click next and finish
Do I need to restart my computer?
What am I missing

First check your printer driver is correct for Win 7 or not.
Another one is maybe WPS54G has compatible problem with your printer.
