- Connecting the WPS54G to the Network
Before starting the physical installation, write down the PrintServer’s default name. The default name usually starts with LK such as LK12345. It is shown in the Server field on the PrintServer’s sticker located on its back panel. During installation, the driver name of the device is used to identify the PrintServer you are currently installing. It is recommended to hardwire the PrintServer to your network during the initial installation to easily configure it.
To connect the WPS54G to your network, follow the steps below:
Using a USB cable, connect its Type A connector end into the PrintServer’s USB port and the Type B connector end into the printer’s USB port.
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable into the PrintServer’s Ethernet port then connect the other end to your switch or router’s Ethernet port.
NOTE: An Ethernet cable is also referred as an Internet cable.
Power ON your printer.
Connect the power adapter into the PrintServer’s port to power it ON.
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. It can be powered ON before, after or during the time your network is active. Furthermore, make sure the Power, USB, and Ethernet/Wireless LEDs (whichever connection you are using) are lit to indicate that the PrintServer is properly connected to the network.
Configure the PrintServer using the Bi-Admin utility. To know how, click here.
