Tip & How-To about Belkin F8T030 Bluetooth Access Point w/ USB Print (814227018805)

Installing a printer on the F8T030 Bluetooth AP in Vista

This worked for me...

Install Printer Driver on PC
Select driver properties - then PORTS tab
Add Port
Select "Standard TCP/IP Port" then "New Port"
Next on Wizard

Enter IP address of AP (ensure you have a fixed IP address)
Port name can be anything unique (I used "Belkin_USB2")
NEXT

Wizard will search but not find anything.
Under Device Type select Custom and "Settings")

Set Protocol to LPR
Set Queue Name to "upper" or "lower" depending which USB socket you have used on the AP
Ensure "LPR Byte Counting" is enabled - this is important.
OK

NEXT then FINISH and Close "Printer Ports" dialogue.
Apply settings and try test print.

Worked ok for me (Vista Ultimate 64)

i WANT TO BE ABLE TO PRINT FROM MY COMPUTER TO MY PRINTER


  1. Either set a static IP for the printer or attach your computer directly using USB.
  2. Setup the printer on your computer using the driver for the printer. If the printer has Postscript capabilities the PS driver is better than the PCL driver.
  3. If the printer is USB setup like any other printer, if the printer is IP then specify a local port in the Wizard and type the IP.
  4. Choose the driver and install
  5. Afterwards go under properties and select the printer components such as duplexer, extra trays, etc.
