I had the same problem. I purchased a new laptop with Vista. I loaded my printer drivers using the USB cable and attempted to load the PSUS4 disk. I tried everything! I kept receiving the err=1805 and add monitor fail. I could print to the printer using the USB cable but not wirelessly through the printer server. I believe the problem was caused when I used the USB to connect the printer and install drivers.
Finally, I disabled Norton Antivirus and User Account Control (UAC) (found at Start - Control Panel - User Account - Uncheck User Account....).
I loaded the Printer Server CD and ran the Setup Wizard. The printer was recognized on this after choosing the box for "List all Compatible Print Servers" and hitting refresh.
Then, I went to Start -Control Panel - Printers - Right clicked the printer - Properties - Ports. Here I unchecked USB and checked the printer I wished to use. (It started with an IP address, Standard TCP/IP, Dell Color....) I clicked ok and closed the program. It printed!
I did not go back to attempt to load the software because it worked without it being loaded. I believe the problem all along was that the USB port was selected, not the TCP/IP.
I hope this helps someone else. These sites are wonderful!

It works! I'm running Vista x64-bit and installed the driver for Linksys PSUS4, but Linksys' driver doesn't seem to support Vista x64.
I think my solution was not to use Linksys' port, but to create a new printer port manually using Vista.
Control Panel > Printers > Add a Printer.
Click "Add a local Printer", and choose "Create a new port".
Type of port: Standard TCP/IP Port
Device Type: Autodetect
Hostname/IP Addr: [enter the IP address of your printer server] i.e. 192.168.1.102
Port Name :i.e. 192.168.1.102/p1
Follow any remaining prompts, add printer driver, etc... and VOILA, you should be good to go. The new printer will be added to your existing list of printers and ready to go.

Have Win7 and another computer running the new Ubuntu 10.04. 10.04 new printer setup finds it automatically. Linux rules.
1. Start -> Devices and Printers -> Add printer
2. Add Local printer
3. My computer came up with a selection //Printer/p1 (as I had named the printer "Printer" as the device name.
4. Select driver.
5. Print test page to confirm and set as default.

Yes, I have also got this printserver to work under Windows 7 64-bit.
Here is how I did it, step-by-step.
Added note for informational purposes only: I had first installed the printer directly connected with a USB-cable to the PC,thus without printserver. But that's only because I had to use an alternative driver for my printer (HP DeskJet 5850) which I retrieved with the Windows Update option during installation of the printer.
Linksys PSUS4 Install Guide for Windows 7 64-bit
A. Connect the printserver to network and printer as described in Quick Start manual:
PSUS-UG-30814.pdf <LOCATED ON INSTALLATION CD ALSO>
B. Use only the "Setup Wizard" from the installation CD <!>
C. Do NOT use the User Install" from the CD, it will only result in the following errors:
- err=1805 AddMonitor Fail
- Reboot and try again message
- AddPort fail
To install the printer correctly AFTER the "Setup Wizard" has finished follow these steps:
1. Startmenu -> Devices and Printers
2. Add a printer -> Add a local printer
3. Create a new port -> Standard TCP/IP Port
4. Hostname or IP address : <USE IP-ADDRESS THAT WAS CHOSEN DURING THE SETUP WIZARD!>
5. Port name: <CHOOSE ANY NAME>
6. Query the printer and automatically select the driver to use
<DO NOT SELECT THIS OPTION!>
7. Next button
8. Detecting TCP/IP port... <PLEASE WAIT>
9. Additional port information required
Device Type : Custom -> Settings
10. PORT NAME: <CHOOSE ANY NAME>
11. Protocol : LPR
