Hello:
I have a epson stylos Photo rx620 printer wich i am trying to network through a linksys  print server.

When i install the driver on windows XP and network it the printer will work. But when i reboot,  the printer states that it is not ready. No matter what driver i install i also get the epson status monitor comming up and that trys to find the printer, Which it cant because it is a network printer.

any ideas how i could network through the print server.

Thanks

I have tried that,  I have also downloaded a different driver.  It seams that the status monitor is somehow preventing the printer to print throught the print server. I have tried to shut down the status monitor but the thing still pops up and tries to locat the printer.

Can you see the print server on the network?

Well thanks for your efforts but i have solved it.

The solution was very simple for any of you that ever run into this.  What i found is after the install it worked great but on a reboot it displayed in printer properties that printer was off line.  So to solve that i right clicked the printer and selected "use printer online" and WALA the printer worked even on rebbot it still kept the online status. Wiered i know but it turned out to be a simple solution.
