    I have a PSUS4 print server that I added to my home network so I wouldn't have to leave my computer on to allow other pc's on the network to print. But it still seems that my computer has to be on for others to print. Any ideas as to why this is so?

    I think you are doing something wrong!
    You have to connect the printer to the PSUS4 with a USB cable.

    And on all the computers who like to use the network printer you have to install the supplied (on CD) printerport driver and than the printer driver.

    If you already have the print driver installed on the computer you can just change the port settings.

    ->Control Panel->Printer and Faxes
    Right click on the printer that you attached to the printserver and select "properties". Now you can click on the Tab "Ports" and then select the printserver port. (This is something like /PS1).

    The printer is connected to the PSUS4 USB connection, and the PSUS4 is connected to my WRT54GS. The other computers on my network (1 wired, 2 wireless) can only seem to print if my computer (which used to be the print server) is on. I will check the settings you mentioned and make sure all pc's have the drivers installed. I hope that's it.
