Question about AsanteTalk - Ethernet to LocalTalk Adapter Transceiver

1 Answer

Laser writer select 360 to Mac OS X 10.4.11 via AsanteTalk

The previous owner had no problems. The AsanteTalk connects to the router via Ethernet, then by WIFI/Airport to my iBook G4. The computer just does not see the laser writer although the driver is part of 10.4, according to Apple tech. When I click on the More Printers button to locate the driver and install it, the Rx light on AsanteTalk flashes, but the Tx light never flashes. Is the printer deaf? Or is there something I'm missing in the installation of all these cables and gadgets? Any solutions, hits, tips, suggestions, etc. sure will be appreciated. Thank you, 
Happy Holidays, Paul Etxeberri

You should phone the Asante tech support people in San Jose, CA, who will talk you through the fix for free. I lost my printer-MacPro connection, the other day, and everything works fine now, thanks to their advice.

I'm running 10.5.x and no WiFi so the fix may not be the same, but it was just a matter of sort of re-booting the Asante box. Here was my fix, if that helps:
1. Delete that printer from your list of printers in System Preferences.
2. Make sure your computer, printer, and Asante box are all hooked up together and turned on.
3. Click + under the list of printers in System Preferences.
4. Click AppleTalk icon in top row of dialogue box that appears.
5. After a moment, click Bluetooth icon instead.
6. After a moment, unplug the power cord from your Asante box (but not from the electrical outlet).
7. After a moment, re-plug the power cord into your Asante box and, as soon as possible after the "TX" light comes on, click the AppleTalk icon again.
8. Within a few moments, your printer's name should appear. Highlight its name, then make sure all the information about it that appears is correct, then click "Add."
9. Everything should communicate beautifully. I had no further problems.

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

Install on mac


Are you trying to connect to this router via wireless? If so there is nothing to install. You should be able to run through the Mac OS X network configuration tool to set up a wireless connection to the router. If you are connecting via a ethernet cable and need to configure the router it should be a simple as plugging it in and opening the browser to the correct address usually something like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1

Xbox live


2 Solutions-----

Number 1 - If your ethernet cord is going from a modem straight to your 360, then get your modem replaced by your ISP.
This will probobly be free, but if your charged, it will be a small fee.

Number 2 - If you have it going to a routerfrom a modem, then go to your 360 main screen, scroll to the far right 'System' blade, select the 4th choice 'Network Settings', and test your Xbox LIVE Connection. It will ask you to sign out. Select yes.

Results should come up (for wired router)

Network Adapter - Wired
Wireless Network - (Left Blank)
IP Address - Confirmed
DNS - Confirmed
MTU - Confirmed
ICMP - Confirmed
XBOX LIVE - Confirmed
NAT - (either moderate, opened, or strict)

If all those are the same, the problem has nothing to do with the xbox itself and you need a new router, or modem.

If results come out to be
''Network Adapter - Disconnected''
After test is run (and your 360 is connected properly to your router AND modem then you have a hardware problem. Whether the problem is in the 360 or the router/modem is easy to test.

Connect the modem directly to the 360 via ethernet. If this fixes the problem, the router is fail.

If you can get on the internet wirelessly and grounded on a computer, the 360 is busted.


Sorry it took me so long to explain that, but i hope it helps you.

Best of luck
