The print server is not listed when you run the Administrative Tools for Print Server Setup program. The PS111W print server may not have a proper IP address. Check the connections to the print server, and ensure that it is ON. If your LAN has TCP/IP ONLY, and does not have a DHCP server, the print server will not be listed. You can use the IP Setup program to assign an IP address to the print server. The IP Setup program is installed with the ADMIN installation. By default, PS111W Print Server is set to be a DHCP client and obtain an IP address automatically. It is possible to get a different IP address from DHCP server after reset. To manage by the browser, check the IP address by using the diagnostic button and print out the Print Server status. Using the Device Name may work as well.
After the print server is reset or resta, the browser cannot find the print server any more.
Using diagnostic button does not print the print server status. Cannot print any more after printing normally for a period of time.
The printer may not be a text printer. As a result, there will be no print out. It may be the IP address changed without the system knowing it. Reboot the system. The print server may be overheated due to the surrounding environment.
Power cycling the print server may resolve the problem.
Check the WINS server and make sure the print server name mapped with the correct IP address, if there is WINS. Power cycle the print server by unplugging and plugging the power cord. Lowering the temperature may stabilize the printing environment.
