Set up a Netgear Wired print server
Authored by: dude-opolis on Dec 31, '09 09:47:00PM

Great hint!!
After weeks of blood, sweat, and tears, I can print with the netgear PS-111W printer server router and HP LaserJet 6L. And in snow leopard no less!

1. Go to System Preferences
2. Choose Print & Fax
3. Click on "+" (bottom left)
4. Choose IP Printing
5. Choose LPD
6. Put IP address of the printserver as its address,
7. Put "lp1" (the "l" is a lowercase "L") as the queue name. This "lp1" is the first printer on the printserver. On other printservers, it might be lpt1, or l1, pr1, q1 or something else. It's not always in the documentation.
8. Finally, select the printer model, selecting the Gimp driver. To do this, click on: Print Using and choose select printer software and choose your printer model from the VERY long list of printer drivers.
9. Print!
