US Robotics Print Server not working with Vista

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Brad from Michigan, Jun 22, 2006.

  1. I have a HP LaserJet 1200 hooked up to a US Robotics Wireless Router/USB
    Print Server (Model 5461). Two other computers running Win XP print
    wirelessly to the LaserJet without a problem. Vista (hardwired to the
    router) cannot find the print server. Any ideas?

    the wrong newsgroup....it was supposed to go to windows vista "Printing,
    Faxing, Scanning." Sorry...I will try again.

    I have the same problem. I have a USR 5461 router/print server with a Brother
    HL-5140 connected to it via USB. It uses an internet port for printing
    (http://192.168.2.1:1631/printers/My_Printer). I have another XP computer and
    a laptop set up to print this way but Vista doesn't seem to recognize this
    kind of printing. Can someone point me in the right direction?

  4. As Kai told the OP you're posting in the IE newsgroup (not your fault;
    there's an error in the menu on the web page you're using).

    Unfortunately, you can't access the newsgroup that you need to access
    through the portal that you are using. Try this one instead:

    http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...8d6-427a-48d6-84dc-a91a6c9fbb45&lang=en&cr=us

    To start you off I am cross-posting this reply to that newsgroup.
    If you get a reply from someone there here you can read it in this thread;
    otherwise use the above link.


    Good luck

  7. Alan,

    Thanks for letting IE General NG be your proxy. <w>
    Is there any chance of that link (in the Windows Vista Help and Support Beta)
    being fixed soon?

    E.g. notice what still happens when you click on the cross-post link
    to Vista Print Fax & Scan in your reply:

    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/co...scan&mid=ff7a8d2e-5877-4eac-8c05-9405bc4ed6f3


    Also, while I'm repeating my critique of that menu:
    I really think there should be another separator and grouping label
    added in front of the last 5 newsgroups in the list currently labeled
    "Windows Vista Newsgroups". We still have Vista users expressing
    surprise in those shared newsgroups that non-Vista discussions
    predominate. I think an appropriate label would have prepared them
    to accept that they would be seeing non-Vista discussions there before
    actually seeing them.


    Thanks for your attention...
