I just got a new notebook and wanted to set up a wireless home network. I got a printer that is supposed to be network compatable. I also got a mini print server to hook the printer into the network, I ran all the setup instructions it gave me but it will not print. I can see the printer on the network but when I send a print job nothing happens. I know very little about anything network related and this one is kicking my butt. I have contacted the printer manufacturer (dell AIO 924) and they have been unable to help. I would love some input on this.

Have you added the printer via printers and faxes in the control panel? I assume you did, since you can see it. Try running the network wizard again and make sure you enable printer sharing.

Go to the printer properties and make sure the PORT setting is correct. Not knowing your LAN I cannot tell you exactly what that is but the PORT should have a LAN IP address listed as the PORT.
