Printer connected to a Asus router RT-n56u via usb port System with Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit Usb port enable through Asus Printer Utility Driver select (auto) during installation SAMSUNG UNIVERSAL PRINT...


I'm having the same issue with the same router and printer (mine is CLP-300/XXA).
At first when I try t print a pdf file or an image or any text/word document file with pictures/images I get an SPL-C error.
I have upgraded the firmware and it worked great on my laptop! Then, I tried to install the printer driver on my desktop, but now none of them work correctly.

Still not solved, but here are some suggestions:
1. Try to upgrade the firmware. 2. Try to install the original samsung printer driver 3.0.1
3. If it didn't work try to install the updated driver 3.0.4 4. If it didn't work try to install the Universal Printer Driver
5. IMPORTANT: between uninstalling and installing driver, disconnect both printer and router A/C power adapter and try to reboot you PC after removing the previous driver!
I'm going to work on it and see if it works. The DD-WRT firmware solved the exact same problem on my previous RT-N13U router, but unfortunately DD-WRT doesn't support RT-N56U yet!
Note: I called ASUS and they told me that Samsung printers are not supported for printer sharing server :(

We have a Lexmark 7170 printer. We have had no issues with it up until last week when it stopped printing. When you try to print it says printing but nothing happens or else it will say Communication...


Hi there, I have a solution for you. Unplug the printer/scanner for 30min. then plug it back in again.
This will reset all functions. The usb cable was good to start with, you didn't have to replace it..
When you run a print over another print it will jam up memory in printer. Clear all print jobs and you will be good to go.

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

I,m running windows7 and using a lexmarl X7170 printer i keep getting a can not communicate message i've uninstalled and reinstalled several time HELP


Check your cables and ports. The most frequent issue is a bad cable so try a new one. Next try plugging into a different port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. (Scanning is more sensitive to a problem with the connection but the printer can also have issues.)

Check if a known working device works in the computer. (You may want to check if the USB ports are powering down for security or power savings. Check the device manager for the first and the advanced settings from the Screen Saver for the second.)

I hope this helps.
