    I just finished a Live Chat with Linksys Support. I'm shopping for a printer to use with a WPS54G. I had a great tech who gave me a list of "certain models that have been tested to work with the printserver."

    NOTE: THIS IS FOR THE WPS54G (USB-only printserver)

    I don't know if this is the full list, but it's pretty comprehensive. I'm sure there are many models not on here, but this is all that Linksys has in their system right now. I also don't know how current the printers on the list are, but it's a start. I was told they won't release a formal list so as not to be "brand bashing" (these literally came across the chat window one line at a time...so, I gues they didn't technically "publish" them).

    No Epson???

    I find it very strange that not one Epson is listed!

    I have an Epson R200, works just fine (so by extention the entire 200/300 line does). Prints from XP using the client, and after a few hours of googling, thru mac OS X too :thumbup:

    Rule of thumb for me is if the printer works with Linux it probably works with a print server. The main thing is if the printer requires CPU from the desktop (like the dreaded WinModems) it likely won't work.

    I use http://www.linuxprinting.org/printer_list.cgi (possibly outdated sometimes). If a printer is listed as working it likely works on most print servers. Another tip is if you are trying to get other print servers like a CUPS server or users over a VPN to use the printer then use LPD protocol instead of goofy Windows protocols or UPnP (whatever that is....)

    HP 842C also works. I think my HP PSC 1315v will work also (print only) but I don't know for sure.

    Epson Stylus Photo R220 works just fine with this print server. Using clients running XP SP2, Vista Home x86 and Vista Ultimate x64.

    Funny, i just got an email from Linksys saying the Canon i560 isn't on their compatibility list. We got it to work though (thanks to the bi-admin utility, which we found out about through Google).
    Only the test function (pressing reset for ten seconds) doesn't work. Which is also the exact opposite of what Linksys support told us, they said "If the test function doesn't work, printing will not work". Well, testing does not work, and printing does. Guess we're in a different dimension.

    I have a Canon Multipass F60, which is very similiar to the Canon Multipass F20. Since the F20 is on the "compatability list" from Linksys, why the hell won't the WPS54G recognize the F60?!?!? :thumbdown:

    Also, trying to find out more info about the "bi-admin utility" I see mentioned. Mayber I need to use that instead?

    Since I can't get the WPS54G to recognize the F60, I've been forced to re-purpose one of my older PCs, put XP on it, and use it as a print server. I can also remote in an scan, which is what I need as well. Unfortunately, the F60 won't work in Vista. :frown:
