Wireless Print Server

I have a BTHub 3 connecting two wireless home PCs, all working well.

I would like to add a shared printer (HP LaserJet P2055d)

It is not possible to locate the printer with the BTHub3 and make use of the USB port.

I am looking at using a TP-Link Wireless Print Server but unsure if this is feasable and if so how to set it up

Re: Wireless Print Server


Hi PeterDee,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting. None of the versions of the BT Home Hub are designed to act as a print server. Connecting a printer to the USB socket won't work, and we don't support this. Some people claim that they've managed to share printers in this way. But the success might be specific to their printer and the Hub just doesn't support this feature. You might have better luck with the TP-Link Wireless print server. Let us know how you get on.

Cheers

David
