Question about Actiontec (5GE583000-01) Router

1 Answer

Router MI424WR-D I just had FIOS installed. My problem is my printer is plugged into my laptop (into a USB Port). The printer is a Lexmark Z600 series. Does anyone know if this printer can be hooked into the router, so that the printer is wireless? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steven,

You will not be able to setup this printer wirelessly to your router as it is because the printer has no networking capabilities(ethernet or wi-fi). If you want to share the printer throughout the network you need a wireless/wired print server or just enable file and printer sharing on the computer where the lexmark printer is connected the only downside with the second setup is the computer where the printer is connected must stay powered on all the time in order for the rest of the computers ion your network to print compared to the 1st setup with the a print server which is stand alone.

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.

How can I add a brother 145 printer so all laptops in the house can use it wireless


This model printer has only an USB printer connection and normally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless network there are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a shared printer. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LAN cable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printer on the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on at all times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
OTHER METHOD
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed on all the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from the USB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will be the IP address of the print server.

is that the first time you install the printer? you need to set up and do port forwarding or triggering specially if your laptop can go online using your router wirelessly. call your router manufacturer to open the port and get the port number from the manufacturer of the printer. make sure as well your printer is compatible with your router.

Hi James,

It sounds like you're halfway there. You now need to find out the IP Address that the USB convertor box is using by going into the D-link router. Note it down (including the dots separating them) and then go into the printer poperties of the printer on your laptop. (Sorry I don't which operating system you are using so I'm going to have to assume that you know how to do this. If not, drop me a line.)

Click on the Ports tab.
Click on the Add Port.. button below the list of ports
In th window that pops up click once to highlight the Standard TCP/IP Port option and click the New Port.. button underneath the selection box.
A wizard will appear. Click Next.
In the next window enter the IP Address you noted from the router noting the dots between the numbers in the Printer Name or IP Address box. (Note that the Port Name box will autofill.)
Click Next (you may have to wait a moment for the settings to take effect).
Another windows will open and the default selection is Generic Network Card. (Leave it as is and click next.)
The finish windows will appear. Check the settings . The defaults are as follows:
SNMP: No
Protocol: RAW, Port9100
Device: (The IP Address that you enterred earlier)
Port Name: IP_(The IP Address as above)
Adapter Type: Generic Network Card

Click Finish and get back the pinter properties page at the Ports tab.

Check that there is a check mark next to the port you have just created (i.e. IP_(IP Address you enterred earlier)

Click Apply and OK.

Return to the properties and print a test page.

Let me know how you go. Cheers.

Find the IP-address of the computer that you want to accept VNC connections.

Access the router's web-interface.
Find its web-page for "port-forwarding".
Define 'TCP' port '5900' to be forwarded to the IP-address that you found.
Save the settings, and restart your router.

Hopefully, Verizon's FIOS network does not "block" all 'TCP:5900' traffic.

Problem connecting to Netgear WNR854T Gigabit edition


The WNR854T will downspeed to 10Mbps on its ethernet ports so speed should not be a problem.
Suggest you try crossover ethernet cable between router and dsl modem.

If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.
