    I have the same problem with a laserjet 1020 and TRENDnet TE100-P1U Print server. On the web status tool, it always shows the printer as offline.

    I have the same problem with hp lj 1018. No luck so far. The print server sees the printer as offline. It does recognise the correct model but that's all it does and not a bit more.

    After speaking with HP i've got an answer. Print servers won't work with ACL printers or, for that reason, with any printer that is host-based. They only work for PDL printers.

    So there are for sure many more printers (besides my 1018) that will prove impossible to set-up with a print-server.

    It's just a matter of opening your eyes a bit more when you buy a printer or a print server. I didn't so now i'm stuck with a print server that I have no use for. Perhaps when I'll change the printer I will put it to better use. Untill then I'll have to do with the usual os printer sharing and keep the computer that hosts the printer open for others to print.

I would suggest you one option if the operating system is windows. You have to go to Start -->Control Panel --> Printers and Faxes . Then you will see your printer icon there. RIght click on that. Check whether you are having an option "Use printer Online" or "Set printer Online". If you have that option , just click on that and apply the settings and see what happens - Thank you

Update the firmware from trendnet
then download the pcl only driver from hp (or whatever printer you have)
then add the printer manually.
the big cd full of junk from hp won't let you install a plain network driver.

    I just contacted Trendnet about an issue I had connecting my LaseJet 1018 to the TrendNet TE100-P21. It seems that this Trendnet product does not work with host based printers:

    "Please also be aware that this print server is for stand-alone printers. The HP Laserjet 1018 is a host-based printer. It is required to be connected to a host computer as it does not have it's own hardware resources such as CPU or memory. The print server is not capable of providing these resources to host-based printers. "

Whenever our Kyocera Fs-720 printer prints it leaves dark splotchy smudges all the way down the page, any suggestions?

Your printer probably is due for a maintenance clean, which can be done by a certified printer technician.

Trendnet TE100-P1U v2.0, USB light goes dark.

A couple of things I would try:

  • Start the Print Server, then insert the USB cable.
  • Plug in a self-powered USB port, and plug the printer cable into that. That could help if the print server is having trouble with the amount of power drawn by the printer.

Trendnet TE100-P1U won't print

open the print server utility and the doc can be cancelled or deleted from there. (this is the server utility inthe toolbar at the bottom of a windows screen. failing this go to the printer shortcut and from control panel>printers> select printer and faxes>select the printer (open) >select "printer" from menu bar, pause printing,then cancel all documents. Afterthis you can delete printers that are excessivly created, or delete all of them and start again with only the one or two printers you need. even if one is for network use and the ther is direct connect. You canuse direct connect to verify proper printer operation until te100 is working properly
