I NTRODUCTION
Congratulations on purchasing your TEW-P21G Wireless Print
Server, the easiest and fastest way to deploy printers on your network.
This compact print server can connect your network through an
Access Point under the infrastructure mode, or can be used in ad-hoc
mode for direct communication between PC/Notebook and print
server anywhere you wish to locate wireless printer services. It
manages the flow of print files from your workstation or file server to
its connected printers, delivering print jobs to high-performance
printers much faster than a file server or a PC acting as a print server
can.
The Wireless Print Server features a Web-based Configuration Utility,
which allows you to set up the print server through the web browser
easily and quickly. It also includes powerful software utility PSUtility and PS Monitor Program, the user-friendly program that

95/98/ME
The Print Server can provide print services to TCP/IP networks using
the LPR/LPD network printing protocol. Most UNIX systems are
capable of supporting LPD, as is Windows NT/2000.
This LPR for TCP/IP Printing client gives Windows 95/98/ME
workstations the ability to print using the LPR/LPD printing protocol.
Though it is possible to print to Print Servers from Windows
95/98/Me, this capability is useful if primarily administer your
network from UNIX systems, or if you want to print from workstations
that are only accessible through IP routing.

Installing the LPR for TCP/IP
Printing Client
Before your Windows 95/98/ME workstation can print using the LPR
protocol, you will need to install the client program, as follows:
1. Make sure that you have installed the TCP/IP protocol, and
have properly configured the Windows 95/98/ME TCP/IP
settings. You can install the protocol from the Network
control panel if necessary.
2. From the Start menu, choose the Settings submenu, then the
Control Panel item within it.

7. Insert the Print Server installation CD in your computer’s CDROM, enter the proper pathname (for example , D:\ lpr), and
click OK.
8. Select the LPR for TCP/IP Printing client and click OK.
9. Windows will copy the necessary files, and return to the
Network dialog.
Click OK to let Windows restart.
- 76 -
Adding LPR Printer Ports
Once you have installed the client, and have enabled TCP/IP printing
for the Print Servers, then you need to add a printer port for each
printer you will be printing to using the lpr/lpd protocol. To add a
printer port,

P RINTING IN MAC OS
Rendezvous Uses in MAC OS 10.2
The latest version of MAC OS provides a new feature that is called
Rendezvous. Rendezvous is a revolutionary networking technology
standard that lets you create an instant network of computers and
devices, which can be used throughout Mac OS 10.2 to provide
innovative ways to share files and printers and even contact other
people on the network.
For the printer connection, the Mac OS 10.2 Print Center application
uses Rendezvous to discover Rendezvous-enabled printers on the
network. When you add your computer to a network, Print Center
automatically discovers the available printers. All you have to do is
selecting the one you want to use and then start printing. You can
add a new printer to the network and all the users on the network will
see the new printer automatically appear in their Print Center, without
any configuration.
The following instructions provide a common procedure of installing
the printer:
- 102 -
1. Launch Print Center.
Add button.
Press and hold the Option key, click the
2. Select Rendezvous from the pop-up menu.
3. When clicking the Rendezvous item, the following window
appears to display the connected Rendezvous-enabled printers.

Setting Up Apple Talk/LPR Printing
For MAC OS X User
With MAC OS X, you can use AppleTalk or LPR printers to print
through the print server. Follow the instructions below for setting up
the print server:
1. After attaching the print server to your network, change the IP
Address of your Macintosh computer to access the print server’s
web configuration. The default I P Address of the print server
is 192.168.0.1. Change your IP Address to 102.168.0.x, where x
is any number between 2 and 254.
2. Open the System Preference window and click Network. In the
Network window, select the AppleTalk tab and check the Make
AppleTalk Active option.
Check this option.

- LPR Printers using IP: When you select LPR Printers using
IP Protocol, type the IP Address of the print server into the
LPR Printer’s Address field of the following window. In the
Queue Name field, type in the Port Name of the post-script
printer that is connected to the Print Server. Select the
printer model from the dialog box, and select the printer
model from the pull-down menu. Click Add to complete the
process. Close all Print Center windows and select the

For MAC OS 9 User
If you use MAC OS 9, you can use the AppleTalk network protocol
for network communications over standard Ethernet or Fast Ethernet
using the EtherTalk transport, or over a proprietary low-speed
LocalTalk transport. Your print server can be used for network
printing to PostScript printers. You can print from any MAC OS
computer connected to your Ethernet network, either directly using an
EtherTalk connection or indirectly through a LocalTalk-to-EtherTalk
router.
To set up the print server to be used for AppleTalk printing:
1. Please confirm that the AppleTalk protocol is enabled in your
Macintosh computer.
2. Change the IP Address on one of the computers within your
network to 192.168.0.x (where x is any number between 2-254).
3. Type 192.168.0.1 (the default IP Address) into the address field of
your browser.
4. Select the Network tab and scroll to the AppleTalk protocol
section.
5. If your AppleTalk network is divided into AppleTalk zones, you
have to specify which zone the Print Server should be in. You
should locate the print server in the same zone as most of the users
who will be using it. If your network is not divided into zones, it
should contain a single asterisk “*”.
