I am sure it will help someone.

Thanks for your feedback which is public archived now. Unfortunately my
older (version 2) version of the Netgear PS110 already has the latest
firmware installed (I did update when investigating the problem:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/support_details.asp?dnldID=809 ->
ps110v2_6025.bin for S/N PS11D). I am scared to try installing the
firmware ps110v3_fw6028.zip for version 3 of the PS110 as it probably
would leave my printserver in a dead state. So I skip that and handle
the case with an iptables rule. Glad though that the new firmware helped
in your case.
