Question about U.S. Robotics MAXg USR5461 (738168036790) Wireless Router

3 Answers

My printer (HP LJ 1200), attached to a US Robotics router with USB print server, doesn't work in windows 7; it works regularly in windows xp. Windows 7 seems not to support Internet based printing (the string to connect the printer is http://192.168.1.1:1631/printers/HP_LJ_1200).

    I disactivated the firewall and the problem is the same: configuring the printer, the system doesn't accept an "internet printer" defined through the connection stringhttp://192.168.1.1:1631/printers/HP_LJ_1...
    Selecting: Add a new printer - Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer - The Printer That I Want Isn't Listed - Select a shared printer by name and typing the specified connection string, the system, after a long time with the window "connecting to ...", answers "Impossible to connect to the printer ..." and there is no way to go on.
    Have you other suggestions? Thanks

  • ladriana Mar 19, 2011

    The printer is connected to the USB port on the router 192.168.1.1; all the PC's connected via ethernet to the router regularly work (connection in LAN and to internet); the printer works well with the Windows XP PC's, while the windows 7 one cannot be connected.

    the driver for hp lj 1200 is installed but the system doesn't ask for the printer producer/model.

  • ladriana Mar 19, 2011


    All the PC's on
    the LAN, both XP and win7, can see each other and shared folders through the router. As the printer is usb connected to the router it is not significant the connection mode of the pc to the router; moreover the win7 pc is a desktop without wireless connection.




  • ladriana Mar 22, 2011

    No, the suggestions where about operations already tried; in the meantime we asked to USRobotics and they answered the print server on our router is not supported on windows 7.
    Thanks

Try to get to the Hp ..and download and install the driver for the printer into the windows 7 ...cause this may be the cause for what it isnt seen by the pc ..specially if they are in network ...the others seen it cause they have the xp driver ..but for this one you have to load the w 7 driver..
Also try to make the settings again if this is the only pc connected to the router ..
or ..if the driver is installed ..get to start ..printer and faxes..and run the add new printer wizard ..and look for the printer by name in the network ..(after you install the driver..

Have you installed Windows 7 drivers for the printer on the PC that does the printing?

    If you go here you will see that the router has support for Winows Vista, XP, 200, Me, 98, 95, Linux and Mac OSX. It will not work on a system with Windows 7. That is why the printer is having trouble recognising it. Windows 7 supports network printing just not the router you are trying to use. You will need to make sure that all the PC's on this print server can see each other. If you can view each PC's shared documents folder from each other PC on the network then the network should be fine. I would sugest trying to connect the WIn 7 PC wirelessly to the router.

Have you tried to disable the Windows firewall? Keep in mind that on Windows 7 the firewall is more "tough" than the win xp one. Here is the settings screen:My printer (HP LJ 1200), - technical114_38.jpg
Also take a look at this official link I think it will help you to clarify the point that you loose the handshaking.

What do I need to make my printer wireless?


You need 1) a wireless router with a USB port that supports the HP OfficeJet printer. 2) The software for your router to run a printer on the USB port. Obviously, you will need a USB A/B male end cable.Note: the scan features of the all-in-one may not work unless the printer is directly connected to the computer. Bi-directional communication is required for scanning and the router software may not support this completely.

Check the list of supported printers closely for older routers. I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 v.2. This router supports all the HP printers that I use.

If this is a new installation of the printer, first install the printer on the computer. If you have Windows 7, just connect the printer to the USB port on the laptop. This will install the OS drivers for the printer. (For Windows XP, go to the HP site and get the full software.)

Next install the wireless router between your modem and computer and set that up. (If you have DHCP (dynamic address allocation), it should be automatic. Otherwise follow the directions.) Next install the router software (for my router, it was Cisco Connect).

My next step was to launch the Cisco Connect program and connect the printer directly to the USB port on the router. In Cisco Connect, choose add a printer and find the printer connected to the router. Print a test page. (At times, I've had to reset the port that the printer is on in the Windows Control Panel Printer Properties. (For the Cisco Connect, the printer is on the DOT4 port.)

Other routers will be set up somewhat differently.

Another option is to have the printer connected to a desktop and then make it a shared printer with the wireless router communicating between the laptop and the desktop. This makes the desktop the print server, so it needs to be on when you want to print. If you have several computers with Windows, this can fairly easy to set up. Make sure that the computers are in the same Workgroup (XP) or Homegroup (Win7). Enable sharing and you are done.

I hope this helps.

Is wps54g wireless print router compatible with windows 7: how do I get it installed


Contrary to the on-line advice that I have found, the Linksys wireless print server WPS54G is compatible with Windows 7. It is the installation program that is not compatible. While not as bad as the early days of setting hardware dip switches, the print server must be installed manually. Following are the many steps that I took to install my WPS54G to work with Windows 7; lengthy, but worth it.


1. Connect your printer to the PC using a USB cable and USB port. Allow the printer to install. Print a test page. Even though you just installed the printer, check for an updated printer driver at the manufacturer's website. I did this late in the process before I could get the printer to work. It installed an HP universal driver.

2. Set the printer as the default.

3. If you do not know the IP address of your print server, access the router using your browser. See your manual for instructions. For a Linksys, type the default IP router address 192.168.1.1 into the browser address bar. If you have done this in the past, set up your router security. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin.

4. Connect your print server to the PC using a USB cable and USB port.

5. On the router locate the DHCP Client Table and determine the IP address of the print server. You might have to refresh the table. The default is probably 192.168.1.78.

6. Access the print server using your browser and the IP address of the print server. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin. Set up security to match the router, SSID, password, type of encryption, etc.

7. Go to "Devices and Printers" (from the start menu), on the default printer icon that you just installed, right click and open "Printer Properties." Click on the "Ports" tab.

8. Click on "Add Port." Select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click on "New Port." Click "Next." Add the IP address of the print server (probably 192, 168.1.78) and call the port whatever you want. Click "Next."

9. After the port configures and you get the "Port Settings" tab (you can also get there by clicking on "Configure Port), change the protocol to "LPR" and click "LPS byte counting enabled." Use "p1" or P2" etc. for the "queue name."

10. Disconnect the print server from the USB port and let it sit for 30 seconds.

11. Disconnect the printer from the USB port.

Use of HPJ4680 in a network with Mac & PC connected to router


Ok what you do is, install the printer as a LOCAL one on one of the PC's, Probably the XP, one, would be best. or perhaps the PC; actually "Connected" to the D-link router & Modem, then Now install this printer , as a LOCAL, printer, and set as DEFAULT, enable Printer Sharing. Now, ALL PC's MUST, have a Name, Belong to the same Workgroup, have a Password. On the "Other" PC's Install the Printer as a Network Printer, browse for it and connect. Print a test page from each. Remember the PC with the printer attached, must obviously be ON or the "Others" cannot connect and print.. Make sure all network permissions are set sharing is set, especially on the Win 7. Just make sure they can all "See" each other first, before try all this.. the network MUST be intact and communicatable from each PC to at least the PC with the printer attached.

    The gateway would be the address that your router uses.

    You would plug the print server into the back of the computer using the ethernet line.
