Hi People, I have an old Lexmark Optra T610 laser printer and would like to connect it to my new D-Link Xtreme N Gigabit router. The router has a USB port and according to some documentation I found online, a usb printer can be connected there for sharing.
I am not sure whether the router has a built-in printer server or whether it can accommodate my printer for sharing. I am trying to use the printer from my PC which does not have a wirless adapter.
I have installed the driver and the printer on my PC while the printer is connected to the usb port on the router. The icon has a green tick next to it which shows that it is installed ok but I still cant print a test page nor any other text file.
Can anyone advise on whether I can connect the laser printer to the router for sharing (wired) and how I can go about setting up the printer to work, or do I have to purchase a wireless card for my pc to connect wirelessly?.
I am using win7 32bit. Thanks
