problems connecting printer to printer server
Posted on 2006-10-27
I bought a new wireless router (D-Link DI-624S) which has 2 USB ports for storage and printers.
I tried connecting my printer (Canon Laser-Shot LBP-1120) through the routers USB print server but for some reason I am having problems.
I follow the exact D-Link instructions on how to install a printer through tcp/ip port and the printer does get installed and prints the test page.
I am able to print .txt files however when I try to print something else like a word file or a webpage it will not print at all and I would need to turn off/on the printer for it to even start printing .txt files again.
Someone advised me that I would need “generic canon drivers” which have no special features.
The printer does print when I directly connect to a computer through the computers USB port.
Any solution to this problem?
