Hey guys, I hope I can share this information about how I setup my Wireless printserver... (WPS54G) You can use the standard Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the Internet Protocol (IP) procedure. In order to install the print server you can run the setup CD that came with your print server and follow the procedures from the wizard, but if it asks you to detach the print server from the Router just leave it as is and click next. It will then ask you to print a test page. You must make sure you check if the wireless settings on your printserver are the same as what you have on your Router, otherwise they would not be able to communicate wirelessly. You can also follow these steps indicated below if in case it does not work:
Installation of WPS54G Print Server
Using standard TCP/IP Procedure (Windows XP/2000)
You should be able to print on the device afterwards. You can refer to your Router's Wireless Settings and match them on the WPS54G so that they would be able to communicate wirelessly.
If you are still having difficulties installing your print server, check this out: Setting up a Print server under Windows XP/2000 using LPR
To have your wireless settings checked if you are using a Linksys Wireless Router, here's how:
Wireless Security Check
This should get your printer working wirelessly afterwards. Make sure your printer is online at all times. Hope your printer works! Good luck!

I got a KPG-4010/E printserver (serialnr: 301WU461L00612, MACadress: 00031B563131) [from KTI Networks]
I have recently upgraded the firmware and the printserver can print to the printer when in a LAN (RJ45 cable from Printserver to the router), but when I unplug that cable to see if the printserver works wireless, it wont work and I cant ping the printserver.
I have also the same SSID, channel and WEP-key on the Printserver as on the WLan-router (a 3Com- OfficeConnect router)
The wireless-led is on too
what else is there to do to get this server up and running wireless?

Make sure your printer already has its drivers installed on all PC's prior to attempting to install this print server. "
Do you mean have the drivers that came with the printer installed on the computers or do you mean have the printer server drivers for the computer installed?
Be sure also that your printer can print when it is connected directly to your computer.
Does the printer remain plugged into the computer with this set up? Or do I just check to see that the computer can print and then connect it by USB directly to the printserver?
