Hi, BT guys n dolls
This is not straightforward at all -- I've tried the good advice from expert geaves here
Solved! Go to Solution.
Happy to be corrected but I understood printers could not be connected to any HH by USB cable.
According to BT you are correct. The USB on the hub is a bit hit and miss for most things. If you want to network a printer you're best to buy a network printer and connect either by wireless or Ethernet. Failing that network it by connecting it through a PC on your network
The HH5 will detect a USB stick, which you can add/delete files easily.
But so far cannot detect a printer
The Network path for the USB stick is \\BTHUB5\usb1
identifies computer name as Bthub5
advanced settings HH5 detect the USB stick
trying to get an IP or mac address - to help with adding printer
nothing, nada --
purchased cheaply ( £1.65 ) a FEMALE USB TO MALE ETHERNET RJ45,
might work rather than buy a usb/ethernet printer server --
will try plugging this into a spare port on the HH5 and connecting usb canon printer to it
will have an IP address at least, might be able to configure Network or TCP/IP - Port
Any predictions what Hub/Network/Windows will see/recognize/detect?
Its worth a fiddle isn't it? 🙂
Are you being serious... That adapter will definitely not work and has a reasonable chance of frying something.
Yeah its pants, was hoping that the etherport on HH5 would give me an IP I could use
as windows 8 additional programs has TCP printer port software
Network card/printer only solution as that cab be tired to an IP &/or mac address
HH6 could feature a network printer port on the hub - that'd be cool 🙂
