Linksys PRINT SERVER w/ HP PSC 2110 all-in-one????

by shaftly / September 1, 2004 5:39 PM PDT

I have two laptops wirelessly connected to a 802.11b Linksys router. I have previously been using a desktop as the print server to the HP PSC2110, but to save some space I bought the Linksys wireless-ready print server. NO LUCK!!! I read a post that I had to use the HP deskjet 990c driver to make my printer work? The network finds the print server, just not the printer??? I tried changing the USB cable, I even got an extra print server (gigafast; due to multiple bids on eBay) and still no luck. My wireless network is secure, but I don't believe that will affect the hard-wired print server?

I had to read this more than a few times and from what I read, this will be an experts only setup. Pitfalls abound as I know firewalls will interfere even if "disabled", printer servers don't have to reveal the make/model printer they are serving and so on.

Many printer servers simple recieve some "millions of bytes that I want you to send to the printer" and you never get feedback that a Cayun Ink Splatter is attached.

Sorry, I can't see what or why its not working from what you've written. I suggest that you call the printer server the "printer" and tell Windows to print to it with your selected printer driver.

Or read the manual again...

Be sure that the device firmware is up to date. I'm nonplused that some 50% of devices I see need updated firmware just to function right out of the box. The same story applies to device drivers.

If the product doesn't work, then pack it up and ask for a refund.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
