You can find some serial to USB converters but they are hard to find. Try Ebay or www.shrevesystems.com.

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.

I installed my enGenis eub9707 mini wreless n usb adaper, and I have local connectivity but not internet. Not sure what to do. Help!


Your problem it seems to be a router problem. If on router side, you have enabled the access protection based on devices MAC addresses, then you must add the new adapter's MAC address into the router's MAC list with allowed devices that are able to reach the internet. For this, you must enter into your router admin settings via http and go to the security section and update the MAC list with allowed devices by adding your new adapter's MAC address. On my router, if I must permit to a new device to go to internet, I have two sections to update: "Wireless->MAC Filtering->Update allowed devices" and the second one is: " Security->MAC Filtering->Update allowed devices "
Good luck!

Just connected printer via usb to macbook - it worked fine on an HP laptop. Now it only prints blank pages


The Brother HL 1030 in USB mode is supported by Windows. When using a Mac with OSxx thru USB will show that there are no communications with the printer. One solution that appears to work with Leopard is to use the alternative communications software for USB connections called "usbtb" which can be downloaded at http://buymelunch.org/printing/usbtb (it's a free download).

If this does not work you will have to use a different parallel-usb adapter.

Good Luck,

I installed a Dlink Telephone adaptor between my speedstream 5260 my PC. I think I need to change the MAC address on the speedstream. How do I do that?


Connect one of your computer to the LAN port of the speedstream, access the configuration page of the speedstream (example 192.168.1.254) then under advance tab there a MAC filter there that you change the MAC address.
