I have the same problem using the latest WPSM64G installation software but It was solved when I upgrade the WPSM64G firmware, the Setup Computer can detect now my printer. The TCP/IP that was suggested here is
working only if you want to print, but it doesn't work if I want to use the scan feature of my printer Epson CX4800.

Thank you so much for sharing this info. It worked for me. Setting up this print server was so troublesome that I was about to give up. Your instructions were clean and very professional, and that made all the difference for me. Thank you so much.

If you want to TOTALLY reset the print server and restore it to factory defaults, which will also return it to aquire an IP address automatically, then perform the following:
Remove the power plug from the rear of the print server.
Hold in the reset button
while holding in the reset button, plug in the power connector (other end must also be plugged into an outlet and live)
Continue holding the reset button in for about 15 seconds or until ALL the lights stop flashing
This forces the unit to restore to factory defaults.
With your printer connected to the print server and turned on, pressing the reset button in again with power applied and holding it until the lights flash should cause the printer to print an information page containing the current IP address.
From there you should be able to access the print server with your web browser.
Type http:// (then your print server IP address)

Two things to add:
1) go to the cisco driver download page for the wpsm54g print server and download both the new driver (2.0 which works on win 7), and the firmware upgrade (1019).
2) install both the firmware upgrade and the new driver, plus use the manual setup instructions above, and you will be set.
After hours of messing around, I finally realized that the firmware upgrade was the key!
