1 Introduction
Congratulations on purchasing your Wireless 1-Port USB 2.0 Multi-Functional Printer
Server. It is the easiest and fastest way to deploy printers on your network.
The Wireless MFP print server complies to IEEE 802.11g/b that allows you to share
your All-in-One multi-functional printer wirelessly on your local area network (LAN). You
can do printing, faxing, and scanning on any of your computers that connects to the
network. It also features a Web-based Configuration Utility, which allows you to set up
the Print Server through the web browser easily and quickly. It manages the flow of
print files from computers to the connected printer, delivering print jobs to highperformance printer much faster than a file server or a PC acting as a print server can.

2 Multi-Functional Printer Server Installation
2.1 Connecting the Printer Server
WARNING: Only a USB printer may be connected to the USB port of the Printer Server.
Connecting any other USB device to the Printer Server may damage the Printer Server.
Note: Before connecting the hardware you must install the printer on each computer
you plan to use with the printer. Make sure that you are able to print, scan, and fax from
each with your multi-functional printer directly connected to your computer(s).
Step 1 Power down the printer and the printer server.
Step 2 Connect one end of a networking cable to your router, then connect the other
end to the Ethernet port on the back of the print server.
Step 3 Connect the USB cable coming from your printer into the USB port on the printer
server.
Step 4 Turn on the printer. Once the printer is powered on, connect the print server’s
power adapter to an electrical outlet.
4
2.2 Installing the PS Software
Note: The PS Software must be installed on all computers you plan to use with the
print server.
Step 1 Insert the Utility CD into your CD-ROM drive. When the autorun screen
appears, select Install PS Software from the menu.
Note: If the autorun window does not appear automatically, go to Start -> Run and type
D:\Utility\Setup.exe (where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive) and click OK.
Step 2 Select your setup language and click OK.
5
Step 3 Click Next at the welcome screen.
Step 4 Click Next at the Choose Destination Location screen.
6
Step 5 Click Next at the Select Program Folder.
Step 6 Once the installation is complete, make sure that the Launch PS-Link box is
checked and click Finish.
7
2.3 Configuring the Printer Server
Note: The following steps only need to be performed one time from one computer.
Step 1 Click the Discover button and your printer should show up under Server Name.
If your print server does not show up, check all power and network cable connections to
the printer. You may also need to disable any software firewalls you have on your
computer.
Step 2 Once the printer server appears in the Server Name box, click on it. You should
see your printer next to Device name. Click on the Setup Wizard button.
8
Step 3 A password box will appear. The default password is admin. Enter it and click
OK.
Step 4 Click Next at the welcome screen.
Step 5 At the System screen you can change the Server Name, Port Name, and
Password. Click Next after making the desired changes. If you do not have a specific
Server Name, Port Name, or Password that you would like to use, click Next to accept
the default settings.
9
Step 6 At the Wireless screen you can input the wireless settings for your network. If
you have a router, you will want to choose Infrastructure mode. If you are unsure of
your SSID, contact your router manufacturer for assistance.
10
Step 7 At the Wireless Encryption screen you can enter the wireless security settings
of your router. If you do not use encryption, click Disable and then Next. If you are
using encryption, you can get the encryption settings from your router or router
manufacturer and enter them here. Afterwards, click Next.
For WEP encryption, select WEP and enter your settings into the boxes below.
For WPA-PSK, Select WPA-PSK and enter your Pre-Shared Key into the box. Please
note that the print server only supports TKIP and does not support AES
11
Step 8 If you have a specific IP address you would like to assign to the print server,
select Manually Assign and enter your custom settings. Otherwise, select DHCP
Assign Automatically and click Next.
Step 9 If your network uses a workgroup name other than WORKGROUP, you can
enter it here and click Next. Most users will want to leave this setting as it is and click
Next.
12
Step 10 If you have specific AppleTalk settings, you can enter them here. Most users
will want to leave this setting as it is and click Next.
Step 11 Click Save to save the changes to your print server.
If you plan to use the print server wirelessly, you can now disconnect the Ethernet cable
between the print server and the router.
13
2.4 Configuring the Computer
Note: The following steps must be completed on all computers you plan to use with the
print server.
Step 1 Double click on the PS-Link icon in the system tray to open the PS-Link
software.
Step 2 Click the Discover button and your printer should show up under Server Name.
If your print server does not show up, check all power and network cable connections to
the printer. You may also need to disable any software firewalls you have on your
computer.
Step 1 Select your print server from the Server Name box and click the Link button.
14
Step 2 Click OK at the Link Successfully screen. You will see notices appearing in
the bottom right-hand corner of your screen as Windows configures the printer.
Step 3 Once you see a notice that says Your new hardware is installed and ready to
use, go to Start -> Control Panel and double click on Printers and Faxes (Windows
Vista Users click on Printers instead of Printers and Faxes).
Step 4 In Printers and Faxes (or Printers) you will see a copy of your printer. Right
click on the copy and click Set as Default Printer.
Congratulations, the configuration is now complete. Remember to repeat all steps in
Section 4 on each of the computers you plan to use with the print server.
