    Wish I'd read this forum before investing in the WPS54G. I use a Lexmark X6150 all in one.

    After reading lots of disheartening information about my prospects for getting the printer to work, I was almost ready to give up. But I did manage to get the darn thing to work, and figured I'd pass along the info.

    First off, I'm using Win2k, and the firmware is 6047. Router is WRT54G, and the laptop I'm on uses WPC54G.

    I first loaded the Lexmark all in one software on my laptop with the laptop connected directly to the printer. This was just so that the software would install.

    Next, I did Start|Printers|Add New Printer|Local (and uncheck the automatic discovery).

    Go through the wizard until it asks for which port to use. Choose the option to create a new port, and choose Simple TCP/IP. Select the Lexmark driver, and you're good to go.

    The down side here is that the printing is slooooooowww. I'm happy to be printing at all, but now I have to figure out if there's a way to speed things up. But slow is better than not at all...

    There should been a port created by the installation of your driver software, it should be named after your printer. You should not have to creat your own.
