Netgear print server -did I buy the wrong one?

By tripmeup1 ·
Bought a Netgear WGPS606 wireless print server so I could print from laptop without having to turn my desktop on. Desktop OS is Win2K, I have a wireless Verison DSL modem, an HP all-in-one 7310. Could not figure out how to connect the ethernet plug from the router to the desktop as I already have the DSL modem plugged in there. Can you connect the print server directly to the wireless modem? I tried that and got an IP address conflict that I cannot resolve. Did I buy the wrong wireless print server? or is there a better correction for my problem?

The best way to resolve this will be.....

To take off all of your computers from the modem router. Now attach the Netgear WGPS606 to your modem router and power up then attach your laptop to your new Netgear and see if you can access the Internet. If all is ok then attach your other computers (one by one) and see if you get any errors. When all done, the best way now is to update the firmware on the Netgear WGPS606 itself. this will cure some of the problems that you are having.. Hope this helps you.

Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.
