Netgear Print server PS101 from other network: how discover IP address?

  Flopper 15:06 29 Nov 2013

I have got some second hand Netgear PS101 print servers which came from an unknown network and I don't know the ip adresses but could do with finding out so I can reconfigure them. Is there anyway to find out? I did read that you can use a Protocol Analyzer to look at network traffic but I am not sure how to use such a thing. I believe once I know the ip address I can plug the server into a laptop, for example, make the laptops ip similar to the print server and then browse to the print server in order to change the ip address,etc?

Isn't there a reset button which will set it back to the default IP which you can probably find online in the instruction book. Similar with the login/password.

Sadly not.

Flopper, sorry if you think I'm stating the obvious but you can get the installation guide and the print-server setup software from Netgear Support - here.
