Clientless printer sharing is possible with DD-WRT, making it simple to mount printers directly into the router without the need for a separate device. If you don’t need external storage, you can skip installing USB support (usb storage, sd mod, and so on).
The ‘USB Help’ connection above refers to the installation of multiple modules. To get my WRT350N to detect that my printer was plugged in, I had to mount these additional modules (usb-uhci.o and usb-ohci.o).
If you have Core USB Support, USB 2.0 Support, and USB Printer Support allowed in the ‘Services’ section of the router web page, the command “insmod /jffs/lib/modules/2.4.30/printer.o” is unnecessary.
In the web UI, the latest v24 stable (not the release candidate versions) includes support for printer sharing and USB support. I recently got my printer server up and running, and I thought I’d share my experience in the hopes of saving someone an hour or two.
(As a side note, I had to allow “Clean JFFS2” and reboot as well.) I ran “ipkg update” after rebooting, then installed the package listed in the “Printer Driver” section above.)
How to configure file storage, ftp , media or print server for
When I connect the printer to Windows by entering 192.168.1.1:9100 in the TCP/IP sector, the printer makes a sound (like when it turns on), and it appears that I have added the printer, but nothing happens when I try to print the test page.
So, here’s how I set up my printer in Windows: Printers and Devices > > Add a printer Add a Bluetooth or wireless printer > The printer I’m looking for isn’t on the list > Using a TCP/IP address or a hostname, add a printer > “192.168.1.1:9100”, uncheck question to pick driver automatically > The printer makes a lot of noise > RAW is the protocol. I choose the Samsung driver (ML-1640, 64 bit) > I click the print test page button, but nothing happens, and I’m unable to print anything else.
Based on your query, I assume you entered both the IP address and the port number in the IP address field. It’s really a lot easier than that, as the quote above explains. In other terms, just type in the print server’s IP address, which is 192.168.1.1. Then, before clicking on the Custom settings for the port setup, wait for Windows to try to do it on its own and fail.
A, I tried DD-WRT in this router and Linksys WRT54G v8.0, and my Motorola wireless print server was able to connect via WiFi without issue in both routers, but only with the Original Firmwares (D-link and Linksys official modified firmwares), and when the routers ran DD-WRT, the wireless print server was not possible in any way.
VPN Critic discusses how to set up an FTP server on DD-WRT. 9th of October, 2016 Linksys Group – Using an old WRT54G as a print server I have an old WRT54G wireless router that I’d like to use as a print server or access point for a downstairs HP printer. It would just be the printer that was linked. I just want the ability to print from any place in the building. Is it really possible? Do I need a different firmware version?

How to Use DD-WRT to Build a Low-Cost NAS and Print Server 9th of October, 2011. Network-accessible storage can be very costly, but you can achieve the same result at a much lower cost by using a router. It must have a USB port and be compatible with the DD-WRT firmware (see here). The router I used was a Linksys WRT610N. Let’s get this party started! 16 July 2011 DD-Print WRT’s Server (simple version) Since the router has a USB port, any USB printer can be converted into a network printer. There’s no need to invest in a (usually overpriced) dedicated printer server because the router is usually on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. p910nd is the printer server software that we use here.

Oh, that’s a completely different unit. So, instead of a wireless printer server, this is an all-in-one router with a print server. (The wireless capability of this computer has nothing to do with the print server functionality; the two are unrelated.)
So, what kind of printer do you have? Was it on the Linksys USB Printer Server’s list? I think they have one that lists all of the units that have been checked and are compliant with it. Not every printer has this capability. Do you know how to install the wireless USB print server?
As a client to your wireless network, you can use a Linksys router wrt54g with DD-wrt firmware, and then connect the wired port from your printer into that. If you have one lying around that you can flash the firmware on, this is awesome. It’s simple to set up and works well. I have one in my office that’s linked to a wireless network that’s not on our network; it’s directly plugged into the modem for computers that don’t have wireless and that I don’t want on the network.
If the printer is networkable, it should have an ethernet port so you can link it to a switch or hub, and wireless users will be able to connect to it if your network has a wireless router.
