    HOWTO: Network Printing with netgear ps121v2

    Hey guys, i've recently bought one of these
    http://netgear.com/Products/PrintSer...ers/PS121.aspx
    and i've been messing around in CUPS to get it to work.
    And i've found a way to get it to work. So i'm posting this how-to.

    First, get into cups by using this url: http://localhost:631/

    and get to the page where you set up new printers.

    Type in the Name that you want the printer to be, the location (like if its in your basement, type basement) and the description.Once thats all done click continue. Once on the next page, Appsocket/Hp Jetdirect. Then for the
    uri, type this into the bar: lpd://(print servers ip goes here)/PS1B88CD_P1

    Then select your make and then model, and click next. Then test your setup and let me how it goes!

    Yeah, awesome! One tiny thing, the string like PS1B88CD_P1 is the Device Name of the underside of the print server.

    Thanks!

    I know this is kind of bringing the thread back from the dead but I'm experiencing a few problems whilst trying to get this to work on Gutsy with my Netgear PS121v2 and Epson Stylus Photo R265.

    Basically, I can print off a few documents but after these have finished it will just print off page after page of strange characters... They're pretty much the typical characters you get when printing goes wrong.

    I can scan in a page if you like but I'm sure you know what i mean.

    But yeah, the only way I can stop this is by resetting the PS121v2. Then I can print a few things again but then come the characters...

    I've deleted and readded the printer following instructions down to the finest detail but still get this problem.

    Has anyone else had the same trouble?

    Thanks.

    This worked for me and thank you!

    But while trying to configure my Macbook OS using the same technique, I may have stumbled across something that needs clarification.

    I'm pretty sure the item above I highlighted in red is the Print Server Name that may be different from one PS121 to another. For instance, my PS121's print server name was "PS3B4066" which is very similar to the original poster's "PS1B88CD".

    So the URI should read: lpd://(print server ip goes here)/(print server name goes here)_P1
    without the parentheses.

    My Linux box accepted the "wrong" name just fine and printed, but the Macbook OS didn't which led me this conclusion.

    Just something to consider.

    firmware version: 1.0.07
    ip address: 192.168.1.104
    Server Name: STAMPANTE.
    model printer: HP Laserjet 1020
    I've use this driver: HP LaserJet 1020 Foomatic/foo2zjs (recommended)

    I've try to use this URL: lpd://(print servers ip goes here)/PS1B88CD_P1
    and also lpd://(print servers ip goes here)/STAMPANTE_P1 but the result it's always the same.
    please can you help me?

    That was very cool, I'm new to Ubuntu and Linux and even I could do that. Thanks a million. For the record my home system is made up as follows. 1 Dell laptop and 2 other desktops runing Ubuntu 8.04, and one Dell laptop running XP with Zone Alarm security suit. Printer is Canon MP780 connected to Netgear PS121 via ethernet hub and Netgear wireless router DG834Gv2. The Dell laptop running Ubuntu is conected to the Netgear wireless router DG834Gv2 by wireless conection.

    Once again thanks for tip.
