Dear LinkSys Support
I just installed Windows 7 and my PSUS4 print server is not recognised.
I read youir advice on this web page hit the reset got the IP adress but the device does not accept the "admin" password.
I have never changed the password on the device.
My hardware ID is 04D0558C28 the firmware version is 6034.
Can you please advise waht the real password for the device is?

I went through these steps and actually had the test page printed fine but anything I printed after that was screwed up. I would get multiple pages printed out with garbage characters at the top of each page or it wouldn't print at all.

I tried all these steps but could not get the print server to work with my HP LaserJet 1022. BTW, the steps are slightly different when I tried it. I kept getting the first test page to print fine but everything after that would print garbage characters on the page and many pages would get printed, so many that I would have to power off the printer.
Once I turned off "Enable bi-directional support" on the ports page, voila, it worked.

Look for the IP address on the printed test page. If you are using a Linksys router with a default IP address of 192.168.1.1, the PrintServer should be getting an IP range of 192.168.1.x as well indicating that it is properly obtaining an IP address from the network.
Sorry the above step does not work. Power indicator light flashes, unit powers off and then on again. Nothing is printed. I was able to obtain the IP address assigned to the print server by plugging in the network cable to my regular linksys wireless router and going into the 'stats' screen.
Open Control Panel in WIndows 7 and open the "Printers" folder. Right click on the "Printer Name" and click on Properties and below you need to click on "Add Port" and click on Next and in the next screen, click on "Create a new port". At the "Type of Port" prompt, use the drop-down and select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click next.
Instead of clicking on properties you need to click on printer properties.
Under "Device Type" use the drop-down and select "TCP/IP device". The Hostname or IP address for this device will be the address assigned in the Protocol tab on the administration web page. Click the box that will allow the O/S to query the printer for the appropriate driver and click "Next".
The "Additional Port Inforrmation" screen should open. Click on "Custom" and then "Settings". Protocol = LPR and LPR settings are: Queue Name = LP1 and check on "LPR Byte Counting Enabled". Leave "SNMP Status Enabled" unchecked. Click Ok and Ok. Once you are back to your Printer Folder, Close all the windows and restart your Computer.
Again your steps differ from mine... Are you actually using windows 7? You need to click on ports, then configure ports.
Now open anyone of your Documents and try to give a Print Command, and you should get the printout.
Nope does not work.... keep getting error message that the printer cannot be communicated with.

If your printer does not support ASCII printing(most of inkjet printers do not support it),
it won't print any thing after you press reset button till 3 seconds.
So don't care about this, configure and install PSUS4 on your computer first.

I follow your instructions and still cant get anything to print but the diagnostics page. I have a HP 5150 hooked up to my PSUS4, I updated the firmware to 6034. Have the latest driver and have triple check all the setting through the Bi-Admin utility. No luck and 9 docs still qued for print......Any help is certainly appreciated.
