    I have a wirelss network w / 3 PCs a Mac Powerbook, w / netgear router, and now the WGPS606 netgear printserver (my motorola WPS870G was half the $ $ $ and easier to set up on my PowerBook, but was killed by lightning storm yesterday), I have an old laserjet & HP Officejet d145. Contrary to rumors, you can serve the WPS870G print wirelessly from Mac / OSX through the network (ie, powerbook is wireless, is also wireless print server)
    1-I have a dedicated IP address in my router w / my print server connect … To do this: in 192.168.0.1 (this is the router) I renewed IP addresses, looked in the router’s allocation table, and found that the print server was 192.168.0.4, so I just assigned it 192.168.0.4, to do the assignment, you must also have the device (ie, the print server) MAC address, that’s the trick … the MAC address on the Netgear print server is the “device” or “hardware” MAC known address, and it is the number on the package itself is printed when the print server IP address to go (in my case 192.168.0.4), you will find NETGEAR website for the print server set that has print server, two MAC addresses second is as something like the `wireless’ MACaddress, the wireless MAC address (this is only different by one digit at the end) is what you use when setting up a dedicated IP address for the print server, and if you have done all this you should try (set your router pages) probably back in 192.168.0.1 to renew IP addresses to see if the assigned printserver address (in my case 192.168.0.4) shows up and shows up with the right MAC address

    3 – setting up a new printer in the printer you want to set up utility, select IP Printing + LPD / LPR, printer address of your new IP address that you (192.168.0.4 assigned in my case) and queue name is L1 (presumably L2 if you needed a second printer)
    btw, you may need to update the driver I (a HPIJS driver for multi-function HP d145), the original Drivers do not even install the CD

    This review is from:>

    Netgear generally makes fine products I use some of them without. to complain.
    I was hoping to use the WGPS606 wireless print server, but it’s just not worth the trouble, bothet with him. It goes back to a refund.
    find Before you consider buying one In the Netgear site to see whether it is compatible with your printer. The list is surprisingly short. multifunction devices except the printing function is not supported.’s also at this point Windows Vista, but that can be solved in time be
    The installation wizard will alert you immediately shut down your firewall -. And provides no evidence which could enable port forwarding thr WGPS606 work with a firewall That, in my opinion, is just plain stupid in my
    .. case the installation wizard was running smoothly I clicked “Print Test Page” and the test document flowed to the spooler -. and then nothing Netgear site has little in the way of troubleshooting information (Your Quick Guide is a joke.) <.. br /> There are instructions for downloading from the Netgear site, but it’s not too helpful.
    It is just as easy in my particular situation, the establishment of a wired print server, and that’s what I’ll do. Better than hit her head against the wall with a further lack of support products. As already mentioned, Netgear pretty good products, but their documentation and technical support resources have a lot to be desired. I’m just fed up with wasting my time because the manufacturer do not care enough about their customers to fulfill what I consider their responsibility to the customer.

    I have not checked this on the print server functionality, I use really do not care. As another reviewer stated in his review, this is the only low-cost, widely available wireless I Bridge could find. I have with a lot of wired network devices in a room upstairs to buy the router and modem in my office landlord downstairs. Instead wireless cards for all of these devices or run a wire down, but did the trick. I plug everything in (including another switch) in this switch and I’m connected to the router ground connected. It took some tweaking to get it working properly. First, it would drop connection for no apparent reason and did not pick up again. Somehow went away enough resetting and tweaking and it worked great for the past 5 months or

    This review is from:. AGPtek USB 2.0 Ethernet Network Print Server Printer Sharing Hub (Electronics) set

    Use the alternative up of one of the previous reviews I was not on a fixed IP Addressing yet gone, but the first time the print server had to be restarted, I just reset the address manually. updating the router fixed ip for this weekend.
    server is working well, has allowed us to end running our desktop as a print server, saving $ $. I thought we had a problem with the server, and my daughter’s mac, but it turns out that there is a problem with our laser printer, not the print server.
    Need . buy another one for the inkjet

    review is from: StarTech.com 50 Pack M5 Cage Nuts for Server Rack Cabinets CABCAGENUTS (Personal Computers)

    The photo shows a M5 cage nut, but what I got was 10-32. You can use it with M5 screws, if you’re not picky about the sloppy fit, but I will not order any more because I do not know what they actually send.

    This review is from:. StarTech.com 50 Pack M5 Cage Nuts for Server Rack Cabinets CABCAGENUTS (Personal Computers)

    I ordered it because it had the best price you are perfectly fine, and they are M5 as the discription says. I rate it 4 stars, because 4-star should mean “I like it.” Would it 5 stars (I love it), except it’s hard to be something as mundane love like a cage nut.
    I read the 2-star review of “Financial Consultant” MH “.” He claims to have 10-32 nuts instead of M5. He also says, “You can do it with M5 Use screws if you are not picky about the sloppy fit. “10-32 screws have a diameter of 0.190 inches. M5 screws are .197 diameter. therefore would have the 10-32 screw the sloppy fit as an M5, I think MH .. mistaken the nuts I had “M5” stamped on the side of each

    I am particularly happy with this pack cage nuts While this certainly seems something not very exciting, were the last set I had probably more “heavy duty” but that meant that I was using a pair of pliers had to install them bend enough. These are flexible enough that I can just by squeezing, which is a install big plus in my mind. Either way, when a screw in it the actual clip plays sit no longer, so I think that’s great. PS Unlike the reviews above about thread size, the nuts I got . have “M5” stamped on the side of each and
