Problem with Canon I-SENSYS MF 4150

I have bought this multifunction printer and I want to use my printer server to print my document on it. I have used for about 1 year this printer server with a Brother MFC 3420C without any problem. I have installed the new driver of CANON and I choose the printer port of my printer server, but when I try to print something (from Windows XP SP2), nothing is printed : have you any idea ? I have tried this printer directly with pc and the printer work properly. A little resume : - Printer : Canon I-Sensys MF4150 - Computer : Windows XP Service Pack 2 Home Edition (fujitsu-siemens amilo notebook) - Printer server : EDIMAX PS-1205UWg Thanks in advance

Re: Problem with Canon I-SENSYS MF 4150

After several days of researching the same problem for the MF4150, the conclusion is that you have to use an Axis or Silex brand print server developed specifically for Canon. Both have been reported to provide Print/Scan/Fax multi-functionality, but it seems Silex is the one Canon really supports (it's only sold on their website) and is most likely to be the least problematic.

Re: Problem with Canon I-SENSYS MF 4150

Wondering why you changed to a new Canon driver? With the new driver, this print server may not work, no IFs, ANDs or BUTs. Most print servers (not all though) don't work well with a multi-function printer. This one probably changed due to software programming in the new driver. All you can really do is return to the older driver, or buy another type of print server. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Installation assistant cannot detect print server

Results of attempting to connect the Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 and the Canon MF6550 multifunction laser printer. I was on the phone for several hours last evening (March 9, until about midnight EDT) with a very competent support agent from Netgear (actually in the Philippines). The Netgear setup Wizard software would not connect the Print Server to my Verizon FiOS wireless G router automatically, so the Netgear support agent walked me through it manually. The Print Server connected that way, for sure. Then we manually attempted to connect the Print Server to my Canon MF6550 and subsequently, my HP 932C Deskjet. Neither printer is on the WGPS606 compatible list, nor is either on the known incompatible list. Now we know - both printers are INCOMPATIBLE with the Netgear WGPS606. I bought both the Netgear Print Server and the Canon MF6550 at Staples on Sat., March 8, 2008, based upon the assurance from Staples staff that it would all work. The question now is whether ANY brand of wireless Print Server will work with the Canon MF6550, or do I have to return this printer and get either a Canon with built in networking (ethernet or wireless) or switch to the Brother equivalent (MFC 8870DW). If I get a (multi-function) printer with built-in Ethernet networking, does the Ethernet capability bypass the USB incompatibility problem, or will the problem remain?

Canon Pixma MP530 multifunction printer comes up as a fax

This is absolutely the right solution. I used this for my Canon MP780 printer under Vista, as well. I want to include all of the keywords here. It is important to note that the DPR-1260 shipped with Firmware Version 1.12 cannot be seen by Visa until it is upgraded with the Version 1.21 firmware, but after downgrading back to the Version 1.12 firmware, the DPR-1260 is still visible and it now recognizes my Canon MP780 multifunction printer as a printer and not as a fax machine. I plan to post this same solution to other sites, so that hopefully others can get their DPRs working again. Whew!

Multifunction printer

For this print server it will not support any other function of the printer other than the printing part. If you are trying to use the scanner look for multifunction print server.
