Im FUCKED if I can work this FUCKING thing out. Ahhhh that felt better.

Ok so I've bought a new printer. Nice. And I've bought a new printer server. Nice. Plugged printer in and its printed off a test page. Nice. Come onto the computer...what the fuck do I do now??

I'm reading these intructions and I may as well read the damn German pages, it'd make more sense! So anyone help me set this DAMN thing up, I'm sure I'm over-complicating things but I'm stumped. Cheers in advance.

Ah, I've been waiting for the sequel! I presume you just need to set it up like you would set up a wireless computer...I've never done it before, but is there a page for the print server (eg like your wireless router homepage?)?

Did the print server come with a CD and have you installed the actual printer driver onto the PC?

I think This is what he got.

Never installed one before, but you if you want to go through some of the steps in the instruction book might be able to give you a hand?!

Sorry about that.

Yeah that is the one I got mate.

If it would help I've got the .pdf of the manual and quick start guide, both of which make no sense.

It says I have to connect the print server to a router using an ethernet cable...but whats the fucking point in that? It wont be wireless then would it? The way I have the house set up is:

In room A: Desktop computer & wireless router (Linksys)
In room B: Wireless Laptop connected to the internet via the wireless router
In room C: Printer and wireless print server.

If that makes some sense? No idea what I'm supposed to do next lol

I'm not sure, I presume you might have to first connect it with an ethernet cable to put your network key in the print server so it can connect to your wireless network?
