EDImax PS3207U Print server not recognising a HP1020 printer

I have installed a new HP 1020 usb printer on an Edimax PS3207U Print server. The print server recognises a HP 1010 printer and prints on this satisfactorily. I have tried it on both usb ports and interchanged the cables.
I can print on the HP 1020 directly from the usb port of a local printer and this works fine. When I try to connect it to the Edimax print server the print server does not see the printer at all. I have tried setting the pc printer configuration as TCP/IP port and as a Lanmanager port, without success. I have also deleted the printer and re-installed it via pc printer control panel. There appears to be very little I can do from the Edimax configuration utility and/or web page configuration. Help please Carrie

    I have set up my print server and installed it succesfully on my wired network. I cannot print as the current status of the printer is "Unknown Device".



    How do you install the printer onto the print server?

SOURCE: even since we install the edimax server, the

Setting the location of the spool folder By default the spool folder is located at systemroot\System32\Spool\Printers. However, this drive also holds the Windows system files. Because these files are frequently accessed by the operating system, performance of both Windows and the printing functions might be slowed.
If your print server serves only one or two printers with low traffic volumes, the default location of the spool folder is sufficient. However, for high-volume printing requirements, to support large numbers of printers, or to support large print jobs, you should relocate the spool folder. For best results, move the spool folder to a drive that has its own controller, which reduces printing's impact on the rest of the operating system.
For information on relocating the print server spool folder, see Change the spool folder location.

To set up a printer to print to multiple devices

  1. Open Printers and Faxes.

  2. Right-click the printer you are using, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Ports tab, select the Enable printer pooling check box.

  4. Click each port where the printers you want to pool are connected.
Notes
  • To open Printers and Faxes, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.

  • With printer pooling, the printers must be the same type of printer using the same printer driver.

  • The previous procedure assumes the printers you want to pool are already in the Printers and Faxes folder.
  • Check for print jobs in que,this can cause the printer to spool if a print job is in que.

Can not identify usb printer


these print servers have a very limited range of printers they can detect. doesn't mean it won't work.

heres how i got my DP 301U to work with my HP1020 on 2 different workstations.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

cheers!!

Problem with Canon I-SENSYS MF 4150


After several days of researching the same problem for the MF4150, the conclusion is that you have to use an Axis or Silex brand print server developed specifically for Canon. Both have been reported to provide Print/Scan/Fax multi-functionality, but it seems Silex is the one Canon really supports (it's only sold on their website) and is most likely to be the least problematic.
