    Printer Server Not Displaying as Available Printer


    Good morning y'all. I have a Canon imageClass MF4150 print/fax/scan that works well when directly connected to my Windows 10 PC up-to-date. I want to be able to use the printer from other devices so I purchased a IOGear print server. I connected the printer > print server > WIFI router. I then set up the print server on my computer but it is now not showing up as an available printer.I am not very good at networking so feel free to treat me like I know nothing. Lol.Thanks.

    :)

    Printer advice

    hp printers have the most expensive ink of all printers, the most economical is cannon and epson so i suggest if you looking to keep costs down look at those brands.

    that being said it may not have the best print quality if it uses less costly ink.

    if keeping cost down is the most important then shop in reverse, find a brand that has cheap replacement ink cartridges then see what printers they are used on. then from that list look to see if you like any of those printers and if they are affordable to you, if not then select another ink cartridge and look at the printers that those are used on. this method will give you the most affordable printer and the cheapest cost of replacement ink.

    personally i use the refillable ink cartridges like these: http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/catalog/Our-Epson-Refill-Kits-orderby0-p-1-c-4.html

    printer won't work on network but will over usb

    his printer has a built-in print server.

    What you need to know what ip is being give to the printer. Perhaps you can print a status sheet from the printer.

    Then Go to printers in control panel

    add a new printer

    local printer attached, uncheck automatically detect and install PnP printer

    create a new port, select standard tcp/ip port

    a new window should open and enter the ip there where it says printer name or IP address (port name then should be also be filled as you go)

    and pretty much follow the rest of the steps, you will need to install the printer drivers.


    These steps is the easy, but not the right way.

    The right way is to use the network option on the initial screw and search for the printer server...but that can be tricky to configure.

    I need a new printer.

    Do the above suggested printers jam up easy? If there is 2 pieces of office equipment I loathe, 1st is copy machines, and 2nd is printers.
