This printer has a usb interface can you see an axis 1650 usb to ethernet server box attached to the usb cable that is attached to the printer ?
would check power to the usb to ethernet server box see photo inserted of what it looks like !
Maybe the power has been disconnected or the ac-dc adapter has gone faulty .
If it has power may be try removing power from it for 20 seconds and then re plug in and then test by printing to printer.
check print server has valid ip address.
also check dhcp server on network has not got printer servers ip address in its lease range. check also that printer server's ip address is static and not being set automatically.
if printer server is ip address try going to dos prompt on p.c. and type in ping {ip address of server} eg c:> ping 192.168.0.2
press Enter key
should get a reply 4 times

Service error 140.10 transport motor


This is a generic error message that can be recorded for a wide variety of problems. Basically, any time the Report Server has problems initiating an application it will record this message along with:
- Application name (i.e. WindowsService_21, WindowsService_13, WindowsService_8)
- Error description (and that can vary widely). Examples: "The endpoint cannot be created.", "The report server has encountered a configuration errorr", etc.

Error badint 0085ddc0


The 'badint' error on the T6100 indicates the printers firmware has for some reason 'crashed', this error should not be seen in normal operation of the printer.
One common cause of "BADINT" messages is the use of an external print server or host computer with incompatible parallel-port settings. If you have an external print server connected to the printer's parallel port there is a setting on the print parallel interface that may need changing, to change parallel interface setting. • Set the printer to Offline. • Press the Enter and LF keys together for approx 3 - 4 seconds. The alarm will sound. (Tech Access On) • Press the Mode key: display will show Offline Normal. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Offline Config. • Press the Forms/1 key. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Config Paralel. • Press the CPI/2 key. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Paralel Bi-Dir. • Press the LPI/3 key. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Bi-Dir Off. • Press the Enter key and the interface will be set. • Press the Clear key. • Press the Enter and LF keys together for approx 3 - 4 seconds. The alarm will sound. (Tech Access Off) On the external Print Server, you need to ensure that the unit is also set for Uni-directional working.

Hello. I have a new Windows 7 machine and cannot figure out how to connect the dp-311p print server to it. The old directions for Windows XP don't seem to work. Help, please?


The wireless printer is somewhere on your "local network".

Access "Control Panel", and access "Printers".
Click "Add Networked Printer", and "browse" your local network to locate the print-server.

Tell us any error-messages that you get, if any.

Via a web browser

Because web based management requires the TCP/IP protocol for communication, any reset option you see when managing the machine with a web browser, will not reset the IP address details that are set. If you wish to totally reset all the print server parameters we recommend you reset the print server by using the BRAdmin application.

To reset the print server (excluding TCP/IP parameters) follow these steps:

  1. Connect to the printer using a web browser.
  2. Click Network Configuration.
  3. Enter the print server password (the print server password is detailed in the user guide for the print server) if it's applicable.
  4. Click the Set Default link or Reset Print Server.

Via the control panel (only for network ready models)
  1. Make sure the machine is not operating, then disconnect all the cables from the machine (except power cable).
  2. Press the Menu or Menu/Set key on the control panel.
  3. Press up or down navigation key to select LAN or Network and press Set, Menu/Set or OK.
  4. Press up or down navigation key to select Factory Reset or Network Reset and press Set, Menu/Set or OK.
  5. Select Reset.
  6. Select Yes.
  7. The machine will re-start, re-connect cables once this is complete. please rate it

I am trying to install a wpsm54g v1.1 print server. All goes well until step 14 and I get a "Connect Fail" error message. Both my husband and I have tried this several times and we keep getting the error...


try this, you need to turn OFF DHCP, START>>RUN>>services,msc press enter. Now scroll down until you see DHCP, Disable it, and set to OFF & Stop it, reboot. You see ths Printer will hand out address, at the moment BOTH are, and they are getting mixed up. Also ensure you are doing everything as Administrator.

Canon pixma 620 error 311


If you double-click on the printer, there is written:

The printer is connected.

After a while the message "Error 311: The printer is in use or an error has occured." appears and no pages are printed...not all printer is capable on print server. just because it supports Mac on USB doesn't mean it will work on Print server

it seems that printer are not compatible

Macintoshes and Print Servers, the PS110 in Particular


Topic 1. What do I need to connect a Macintosh to the PS110 Print Server? A PostScript printer with a parallel interface, a Mac running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (NETGEAR products are not supported for earlier versions.), and Ethernet cables to connect the Print Server to the printer, and the Print Server to your Macs, and to a router. NETGEAR's RP614 router is known to work connecting the PS110 to the Internet with Macs. Topic 2. How do I avoid losing my network configuration when restarting my Mac? When changing theMacOS configuration it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9.x) or Network Location (MacOS 10.x) settings instead of changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). That way you can be sure the changes will not be lost after rebooting. To Create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select File > Configurations > New Configuration. 3 . Type a meaningful name for your new configuration (e.g., NETGEAR Wireless Router). 4 . Make your changes to the AppleTalk or TCP/IP settings. 5 . When closing AppleTalk or TCP/IP choose Save Changes. Whenever making Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open File > Configurations or press Command-K. Changes in Configurations are saved after rebooting. To Create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. Click Internet & Network > Network. The Network Settings window displays. 4. If the window is locked, click the Lock icon in the lower left to unlock the Network window. (You may be asked for a username and password.) 5. Click the pull down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select New Location. 7. Type a name for your new location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes window displays. 10. Click Apply to keep the configuration changes for the newly-created location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Mac to the PS110 Print Server? For MacOS 8.6 and 9.x 1. Follow the instructions in the NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-PostScript printers with Macs on the PS110 Print Server.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer to be used with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Chooser from Apple Menu. 6. Select LaserWriter 8. 7. Select the PostScript Printer to use. (This is probably the description for the PS110 Print Server and may have a name like ?PSD90335?. This name may be different on your computer.) 8. Click Setup. 9. Click Select PPD. 10. Select your printer from the Printer Descriptions list. 11. Close the Chooser. 12. Click OK. A message displays: ?You have changed your Desktop Printer.? You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet. For MacOS 10.x 1. Follow the instructions in the printed NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-Post Script printers with the Mac and the PS110.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer you will be using with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Utilities > Print Center in the MacOS 10.2 Applications folder. The Printer List appears. 6. Click Add. The Printer Selection window appears. 7. From the top of the Printer Selection window, select AppleTalk from the first pull down menu. 8. Select Local AppleTalk Zone from the second pull down menu below. 9. Click the Print Server from the list in the window. PSD90335 ? PostScript Printer in the case of this test. 10. Click the pull down Printer Model, and select the model of printer connected to your Print Server. A list of printers displays. 11. From the scrolling list select the Model Name of the printer connected to your Print Server. 12. Click Add. 13. Printer List displays with the list of printers and print servers connected to your Mac. Select the name of the Print Server from the Printer List. 14. Click Make Default. 15. Close the Printer List. 16. Open a file and try printing it. You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet.
