Printer installation on notebook and PDA

My notebook does not have a serial printer port so I used a Belkin serial to USB cable. However, it will not print a test page. I also tried to print from HP IPAQ rx3715 infrared port and the devices does not recognize the printer and only shows HP as a manufacturer of printers in Print Manager. I have followed all directions that came with the printer to the letter.

    The printer now works; however, the only USB port available was for my office laser printer. I tried that and it did not print the test page. Then I got the bright idea to change the batteries in the printer. I did so, went back to my original configuration using the serial port #7 (where the Belkin is located) and it worked. I guess the batteries that came with the printer were weak. I feel kind of dumb in not trying this before. Yet, I'm still unable to print from PDA via its IR port and any suggestions you might have would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Doug

What make/model is the PDA that you're trying to use to print with via the IR port?

The problem may be that the driver is pointing the printer to print via the serial port, so you will have to go to the printers and faxes folder and see if your printer is listed, if so right click and select properties, then in the next window, click on the 'Ports' tab and you will have to click configure port to change it to usb.

I have just purchased a Belkin N600 modem router. I have attached my Canon i850 printer to the USB port on the router but I cannot print. The green USB LED is not illuminated. Can you help, please? ...


I think you need to connect your printer to the router using an ethernet cable and not a USB cable. Ethernet cables are plug-and-play cables and doesn't require you to install a software. If you really need to connect your printer using a USB cable, you need to connect it to your PC so that the PC will run the installation wizard to install the USB cable. Of course the router cannot run installation wizard to the printer or the printer cannot run installation wizard to the router.

Hi, what your system detecting is that the PR2E still in COM1 or COM2, if you have the driver installer set the port to USB so that the system will detect your printer via USB. Or change the port access from COM1 to virtual USB.

Windows 7 not compitable with belkin usb to serial adapter


can you confirm if it is F5U409?
If so the solution would be to install windows vista drivers. in belkin site it says that windows 32bit are compatible with the adapter.

My Belkin USB PDA Adapter Serial adapter when


In my effort to find answer I created a bigger issue. Answer to my Belkin issue was found at the Belkin website. But now due to my own failure to read all the details of acceptance of what I thought was what was necessary to get help; I am into another software 'pay-me' software program costing $10/month or $12+ for one time help of something which is simple to fix (Fix-ya). I got tired of paying Microsoft $25 each time to answer a simple question and often told to re-booth my entire system at 'possibe loss of my info'. When I found the answer and told them what I did to fix my pervious problem they did not credit me or pay me $25. And now there is Fix-ya; NO THANKS. Please remove me from your support group list. Not interested. JB
