Connecting Usb printer &800DXL

Post by greshoff » Thu Dec 20, 2018 8:12 am

Hi,
Could someone give me instructions on how to connect my USB printer to the router so the printer can be used by 2 computers on the network. Once the printer is physically connected are there any steps/settings which need to be done to the router?
One computer is running Windows 10 and the other Windows 7
Many thanks

Hi again,
I added the printer and it initially worked OK however it has stopped workinh now. I have checked the cables, deleted the printer and added it again but when I select the printer when printing a doc nothing happens. I am also unable to cancel any pending printing jobs. Any ideas?
Many thanks
