    Hey guys,
    I have a serious networking problem that had me up many nights lately... I bought a usb print server from and i can't get anything to recognize it anymore..

    what happened:

    when i got it it was found by all the programs that came with it but when i restored factory settings it quit responding... even the setup wizard won't find it anymore...

    what i've tried:

    ok... it has a built in dhcp client accessed via ip : by default... which i reset to to make it usable on my network that has 1-4 taken by other routers/printers/etc... i thought that maybe when restoring factory defaults it turned off dhcp so i used a comp with xp to set the network device tcp/ip settings to but it says that it is unplugged...

    is it possible that it burned out? any help or thoughtful ideas would be helpful... it wasn't a huge investment @60usd but it would be nice if it actually worked :p


    (oh, i'm definantly not a pro at network stuff and am entirely self taught through trial and error so if i didn't say something right please correct me:) )
