USB and printer?
« on: October 21, 2015, 11:15:06 PM »

Any tips on how to get the router to recognize my printer when plugged into the usb port? Already disabled the media server part.

I plug in the router, but neither computer can see it on the network,  printer info does not come back with an ip address.

Have you installed Shareport software to see if that picks up the printer?

What Mfr and model# is the printer?

There is a new version of SP on the way that should be more compatible with Windows 10.  ;)
