Problem with Linksys print server

By eons

  1. So I got this linksys wvc200 print server the wireless one. It works fine, but it sets the printer that the server is hooked up at to be the default printer, and while the print server utility is running it wont let me change the default printer. I'm trying to make it so i can easily print from any of the printers without having to go through exiting the program and going to the printers and switching the default printer. Any solutions??

    Your error is in the setup of network places. What is the IP of the printer? That is critical. How do you attempt to access the wvc200 print server? Through a wired or wireless router or access point?
    Can you see the printer in My Network Places? If not, your setup is incorrect for the printer... more than it is a wireless problem.
    Tell us the brand and model of printer.

    disconnect from the network.

    now go cp->Printer and Faxes
    right click on the printer you want to use as the default, pull down to
    set as default

    When printing a document, you do not have to always use the default device,
    click print
    the dialog appears and you can select an alternative printer.

    you can also click Print Setup, select the printer and the OK.
    that will be the target device for that document until you quit/exit the program.
