I am unable to set up my linksys wps54g print server using the setup disk that came with it. Is there a manual way of setting it up to enable it to print to my printer wirelessly.

Okay, is your main network's IP range 192.168.1.x or something else? It MUST be 192.168.1.x for you to be able to reach the print server.

I can actually see the print server when I refresh my wireless network list but I cannot connect to it using the ip provided by linksys and I cannot see it when I run the setup disk either. I was wondering if there is another way I can connect to it manually.

Well, that is the manual way....
I think you might have a dead unit... wireless print servers in my experience (although not necessarily Linksys) have a habit of being DOA. I once went through 3 just to get a working one for a customer.
Although Linksys support is useless, I recommend you call them and tell them you need to get it replaced (either that or take it back to the store and swap it for a new one).
Cheers!
