- Connecting a Wired PrintServer to the Network
Before starting the physical installation, write down the PrintServer’s default name which usually starts with “LK” such as LK12345. The default name is shown in the Server field on the PrintServer’s sticker located on the PrintServer’s back panel.
During installation, the PrintServer driver’s name is used to identify the PrintServer you are currently installing. It is recommended to hardwire the PrintServer to your network for initial installation to easily configure it.
For instructions on how to connect the PSUS4 to your network, follow the steps below:
Connecting the PrintServer to your Network
Use the USB cable to connect your USB printer to the PrintServer’s USB Printer port. Plug the Type A connector end into the PrintServer and the Type B connector end into the printer.
Plug one end of the Ethernet network cable into the PrintServer’s Ethernet port then connect the other end of the cable to your router or switch.
Power ON your printer.
Plug the power adapter into the PrintServer’s port.
NOTE: The PrintServer does not have an ON/OFF power switch. Whenever its power adapter is plugged in to a power supply, the PrintServer is powered ON. The PrintServer can be powered ON before, after or at the time your network is up and running. Furthermore, the Power, USB, and Ethernet LEDs are lit to make sure that the PrintServer is properly connected to the network.
