What brand of print server would be compatible with a linksys broadband router and the HP printer?

I purchased a linksys print server capable of supporting of supporting a multi-function printer. The linksys print server isn't compatible with my HP printer. Is there another brand of print server that woud be compatible with both the HP printer and the linksys broadband router. I really don't want to replace my printer. I contacted linksys and was informed the two devices are not compatible. Thanks for any info or advice. okoboji

You asked for any advice. If you want to use a server, you must already have at least a home network set up (it could be wireless or hard-wired). Yes, stand-alone "print servers" are notorious for only supporting certain printers. If you don't know this before you buy, you may find yourself returning your print server to the store. However, instead of a standalone print server, have you considered setting up one of the computers in your network as a "print server"? That's the way it used to be done. That's the way my own network is set up. You would set up your multifunction printer as connected directly to one of the computers in your network. Enable "printer sharing" on that computer. Then do the following on all other computers in the network for which you desire access to the printer: Add a network printer. If asked for drivers, get them off the printer's installation CD.

After moving to a new house/ new state, I can not get my HP 2035n to connect wirelessly to the router. It will print from any of our computers, but must stay connected to the router. I can find no...

The HP P2035N doesn't have a built-in wireless ethernet connection. It has a wired ethernet port. To connect to a wireless router, you need the HP Jetdirect ew2400 802.11g Wireless Print Server or the HP Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit or a similar device (note: not all third-party wireless print servers will work with the HP printer). Did you have something like this and misplace it during your move? If you did, try to find the print server to use the wireless option. Otherwise, continue wired ethernet option since it is working.

HP support for the printer (manuals, set up infomation, and drivers) is available here: .

I hope this helps.

How do I connect my wireless laptop to the hp photosmart 3210?

If the printer doesn't already have network capability, you'll need to use a USB print server. Here's an example. You connect the server to one of the router's wired ports, and then any network computer (wired or wireless) will be able to print to the printer.

I am wondering if my hp 3150 is compatible with XP pro and if it can be used in a wireless fashion

Your printer is Windows XP compatible.
You can dowload the necessary drivers as sofware from HP:

It does't have either wireless capabilities.
You might use a printer server to connect the printer to a wireless router. But not all printer servers support multifunction printers (or your the function of a multifunction printer).

I have a HP OfficeJet K60 printer. I have a Linksys WRT54G V8 broadband router. I would like to set up printer so that I can print from my laptop without connecting the print cable to the laptop.

Do you have the jetdirect print server attached to the printer? If so, follow the instructions for the print server setup before connecting to the broadband router

HP Photosmart C3150 compatability with print server

I have a same print server but it works with my Epson printer. Well most print server manufacturers claim that their device should work but in reality they are still subjected to hardware compatibilities some printers will not work, I suggest you just try the same manufacturer as your printer, it may be a bit expensive than universal print servers but atleast your guaranteed that they will work and if it doesn't you have one company to deal with instead of you getting a run around by both companies on who'se fault is it why and why it's not working as they claim.

Anyways here's a link for HP's "wired" printservers.

Laserjet 1000 & DI-524UP

The HP LaserJet 1000 is a Host Based printer and so is not compatible with your router's USB print server.

You cannot use this printer with this print server, it needs to be connected directly to a computer that can run the HP drivers/software.

From D-Links tech specs for your router:-

** Host-based printers are not supported. Please check with the printer manufacturer if your printer model is host-based (GDI).

WiFi Print Server, how do I configure?

I purchased this machine and went through two months of technical support, new drivers, uninstalling and installing software, new install cd from HP (that was older than the one that came with the machine) then finally a replacement printer - still no wireless capability with my compaq v2000.
Chased it all the way up to US senior support and a woman told me there that the wireless peer-to-peer feature only worked 50% of the time. She told me to buy a router - end of story.
I'll never buy another HP printer again, and I'll never spend the money on upgrading to peer-to-peer wireless for a printer again!
So - get a router and follow the instructions, and it'll probably work.
