    Since I can't get my print server problem resolved by Linksys (I was on the phone with one of their techies for over 1 1/2 hours), I searched and found this site. I hope someone here can help.

    My system has:

    Windows XP on all PC's
    Linksys Wireless-G router
    2 desktops & a laptop
    Canon i850 printer
    WPS54G print server that is now disconnected

    After several attempts to get the server working, the Linksys guy said that I probably don't have the latest firmware, so I should go to the Linksys site and get the latest. I went there, only to find that there is NO latest firmware for the WPS54G.

    Question to Rocky

    Hi Rocky,

    At the end, did you solve your problem?.

    I have same config and had a lot of problems to make it work.

    I finally unistalled printer server setup wizard and configured wireless network printer as a LAN manager port manually on WXP.

    There is a later version of the print server firmware on the Linksys support site ver 6049. Remember the the WPS54GS does not asupport simutaneous wired and wireless connections, so you have to disconnect it from its wired connection power cycle the unit to have it work wirelessly. Doe the USB light light up, when connected to the printer, it it does not it means the printer is not recognized andd will not work with the printserver.

    I have a canon ImageClass D660 and the wps54g the light for usb lights up when it is plugged in and it displays on the web config as the right printer, but it does not print anything.
    It will print if it is directly connected to a pc but that is unacceptable for my situation.
    Does anyone have any ideas on why this may be happening?

    EDIT:I figured it out. Any printer made by cannon and uses the canon advanced printing technology, since they cost about a shitload has to have an expensive print server made by axis to be enabled. ones like the linksys and the netgear printservers are not compatible with these printers. because canon needs all the money thay can get. looks like i wil be getting a micropc to run this printer on.
    It won't be as small but it will be more versatile. I think i will make it my AP as well. (its for a client ill never give up my wrt54g)
