Issue connecting my printer via by Infinity Router
I really would like some assistance or advice.
I am new to BT Infinity (formerly on Virgin for printing via my router), I have a BT Home Hub 5 Type A. I am running a MacBook Pro on OSX 10.9.2 and I am trying to get my MacBook to print to my HP Photosmart 5510.
I have checked that I have:
No Filtering on,
My SSID connection on the printer matches the router.
There is a consistent IP address everytime I have connected the printer to the router.
I have uninstalled and re-installed the utlity and the drivers on my laptop.
I have the latest verson of OSX on my MacBook.
I have been able to detect the IP address from my printer, but I cannot detect the printer and install the drivers.
Can someone please assist me and tell me if there is a solution so I can print to my HP Photosmart 5510 from my MacBook. And before anyone asks, I have switched on and all all of the various components where possible (from the mains so there is a cold re-boot).
Thank you if you can assist me with this challenge! Or can you recommend a printer that works (and if Bonjour is an issue)
Re: Issue connecting my printer via by Infinity Router
have you tried switching of smart wifi and then splitting the 2.4 and 5ghz into to by say adding a 5 to the 5ghz ssid. you can then select a channel for each and turn off automatic channel selection. that may help your printer 'see' a network
