    You guys have probably covered this before but I'm a newbie and beg forgiveness. I have a WPS54GU2 that I have been using for a couple of months to share an Epson Stylus Color 600 between My PC and Laptop thru a WRT54G router. The installation was a little bumpy but in the end it worked the way I wanted and I forgot about it. Now I can no longer print from my PC but I can still print from my laptop. I get an error message that says "Cannnot connect to print server". Worse yet, I have misplaced the cd which contains the setup wizard. I think I could re-install this thing if I had the cd.
    Is there someplace to get the wizard cd without buying another print server? Can I download it and burn my own CD? :help:

    Thank you patient experts,

    Nevermind, I figured it out. When I originally configured the print server I had it hard wired to the router. It doesn't say in the Quickstart Guide that you have to turn off the server and unhook the ethernet cable and restart the server to get it to go into wireless, but you do. I had omitted this step and was hooking up my laptop using Ad Hoc setting. My PC was using hardwire thru the router. I had a power failure and eventually powered down my UPS and when I powered back up the server was seriously confused because the ethernet cable was still hooked up. My PC couldn't see the server thru the router but my laptop could still hook up in Ad Hoc mode. So after extensive research on this site and others I came to the conclusion that the Install Wizard from Linksys was flawed anyway and I needed to learn to use my browser to configure my server. I reset my print server by unhooking all the cables, unplugging the power and holding the reset button while plugging the power back in. Then I unplugged the power, hooked up my router and printer and plugged in the power. I then used my browser to access my router, got the IP address of my print server from the DHCP clients table and then used my browser to configure the print server. Then unplugged the power to the server, removed the cable to the router and plugged in the power. Hey, Presto, the print server is now operating in Wireless Infrastructure mode and all is well.
    Thanks to the forum for supplying all the info I needed. :biggrin:
