Cannot connect to Netgear PS110 Print Server to configure it
Posted on 2004-10-07
I have just acquired a Netgear PS110 Print Server. When I first plugged it in, it all seemed fine, but I decided to change the IP address from the default that was offered to 192.168.0.255. (I think this is where I went wrong....!). I used the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway of 192.168.0.2, since it is this router that I have plugged it into (see below).
Since changing it, I cannot access the print server to configure it, nor can I connect to the printers. And it does not now appear in the list of available print servers in the Netgear utilities (it did to start with, but now the list is blank - I only have the one print server). But the print server appears still to be on the network - the Tx and Rx lights are flashing away. I have tried pinging 192.168.0.255 - the ping times out.
I have spent a long time talking to Netgear Tech Support (who were very helpful) but to no avail. Is there any way of doing a "factory reset" on the device to restore the default settings? Or alternatively, is there any way of accessing the device to change the settings?
And as an aside, is there any way of getting a list of the devices (or at least, the IP addresses) in use on my local network, so that I could at least identify the IP address that the print server is now apparently using?
My main router is an RP114 (IP: 192.168.0.1) connected to a cable modem, and I also have a DG834G (IP: 192.168.0.2) which I am using as a wireless access point and switch rather than a DSL router. My PC's are connected with IP addresses 192.168.0.3 and .0.4.
