Can't set up the HP Printer on DSL Box on the Shared Printer port...

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Honkeytonk Man, Oct 7, 2004.

  1. Hi Group,
    Maybe wrong group, but there seems to be a wealth of knowledge here. I feel
    a bit of a berk that I can't repeat on my own machine but I did on the

    We have a Draytek Wireless G router and it's got a USB port on the back to
    enable 'network printing'. We've both got Windows XP and I'm going bonkers.
    The driver is installed on my machine, and the IP of the router is (which is the printer).

    I've added a TCP\IP port in the Ports Tab, and ticked it. When I unplug the
    printer locally from the USB and plonk it in the router, the printer
    vanishes off my Printers list(!)

    It doesn't with the other machine and I can't understand why.

    Any clues guys ?

    The port address is OK, but you haven't any device address.
