    I've been dealing with this problem for 2 weeks. talking to linksys didn't help either, so this is my last resource.
    I have a 2Wire router, I got a WPS54G to use with an XP desktop, a dell laptop and an apple powerbook.
    I used the wizard to set up the print server for the LexmarkP915 (not-all-in-one printer) and it worked fine. It does recognize the printer, but the problem is that when I print something for the first time, let's say a test page and then go to another program and try to print soemthing the printer freezes. It says it's printing on the printer screen and the printer utility program says it's online, printing.. but nothing. I have to unplug the printer and plug it back after 30 seconds to restart it.
    Is this a hardware problem? I've looked through all the forums, but there's nothing similar to this.
    How come I can only print one time and then freezes???

    Please, give me some answers, before I start regreting buying this device...

    As mentioned before, I have a printer HP PSC 1210 (Multifuntional) connected to printer server being accesed both wired and wireless for 4 computers.

    First I faced same problem after first print and fixwd just checking on the "Activate bidireccional compatibility" option on Win XP printer properties.
