US Robotics wireless print server setup

16 New Member
Hey all, I'm using a US robotics wireless router, and I want to connect a HP Color Laserjet 1600 to it for use as a network printer. I followed the directions from the USR website carefully (http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-files/printer_install ation/index.html) and when I get to step #10 the wizard pops up an error saying "Windows cannot connect to the printer..." what am I doing wrong?

This is an old thread but I am going to post a reply for anyone else with that old USR router and a similar problem.

If on the same subnet 192.168.2.x adding a printer using will tell you that you do not have a driver at "My_Printer " and you get a chance to load the driver. In my case a dell multifunction printer with USB. It works fine if you got the printer driver handy. XP or Win2k was ok.

If not on the same subnet. then I was unable to add the printer. This was my network setup:

192.168.2.x had the dell printer, 3 wired clients and one wireless client: that was also the DMZ. That system had its ethernet set for microsoft internet sharing and the subnet was 192.168.0.x which went to a switch. None of the computer on that subnet nor the system could access the dell printer at 1631. I am not sure why, but I did get the printer to be recognized for the wired 192.168.2.x systems.

Hi there, I've recently developed a VBA-program in Excel that fetches and presents data from a distant Access database over a wireless peer-to-peer network (both computers running Win XP Pro). It has worked relatively well for some time, but recently I'm often encountering errors when trying to fetch the data. I am pretty sure that this is because of a poor wireless connection since I'm also having some problems e.g. copying files...

Hello, I am working on an Acc2003 app for my company. In the interest of reducing chances of corruption due to unstable network connectivity, I would like to either prevent users from running it through a wireless connection, or limit their use to read-only. I have absolutely no idea if this is possible, and if so, how. Is there any way from within Access to get the list of routers they are connecting through? Ideally, I'd like to keep...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
