    I set up a wireless infrastructure network in my office with router and printserver to connect my laptop to my printer. For some mysterious reason the network can't see the printserver although I can ping its IP address just fine. I am using the network in order to print from my Tungsten C PDA. This works well, but now I can't print anything from my laptop. All the lights on the printserver and the appropriate lights on the router are lit; everything seems to be connected right. Anybody have any suggestions?

    I have a compuer that cannot print to a Linksys print server. There is a conflict with a second NIC on that computer. Once I disable the 2nd NIC, it can print. Still can't figure out what is this conflict is.

    I fixed the problem by following the steps on the Easy Answer page of linksys.com Answer ID 146: how to set up a print server under WindowsXP/2000 using LPR.
