    If you have MAC address filtering on your router add the MAC address of your WPS54G to the list of PCs allowed to access the router. Do not disable SSID broadcast on the router.

    Connect your WPS54G to your network and use the BiAdmin Utility to set it up. You have to match your setting on the WPS54G to the setting on the router. SSID, channel, if the router is set as a DHCP server, the printer server will be set as a DHCP client. Match your encryption. The WPS54G only has WPA-PSK TKIP and not WPA2. You have to install the driver for the WPS54G on all the computers that will use the printerserver. You have to install the printer drivers using a port that is the printer/server not LPR. If you have to be walked through the steps indicate you need the steps. Disconnect and power cycle the WPS54G from your network. It cannot handle both a wired and wireless connection at the same time.
