As I don't use wireless on my system, all peripheral devices are connected to the hub are via ethernet cables.
My current issue, am trying to install my HP Laserjet 5 printer (via ethernet) to my system, but cannot get the hub to recognise the printer as a device. The result of this is that I cannot install the printer on to my system.
I was under the impression that the hub had the capability to detect any device connected to it?
Can anyone offer any advice please?
As above or directly connect the Hp to your laptop via cable. Set the laptop as
Subnet mask: 255.255.252.0
It May now be possible to http to the Hp or even telnet and change the IP details?
Note: Not sure if using 192.168.0.2 is a good idea as I thought that was reserved for the guest network?
I think it’s 192.168.2.0/24 that’s reserved for the guest network.
You are of course correct .... Too much mush between my ears 😉
It looks like I may have sussed the issue at last.
To save any more messing about, I bit the bullet and manage to source a pukka HP Jetdirect print server card for my printer at a very reasonable price - under twenty quid including shipping. Fitted same to the printer (connected via ethernet cable to VM SH3) and performed a self test configuration on the printer (to determine the details for the Jetdirect print server card) and located the IP address as: 192.168.0.10
Logged on to the VM SH3 and (within DHCP) assigned the above IP address as a new device and rebooted the hub. Went into the printer's menu map, opened the (newly exposed) HP MIO menu, set up the parameters and rebooted the printer. Then going into Linux control center admin, attempted to set up the printer of which the system actually recognised the printer - gasp!
Amazing - still can't believe it actually worked!
Anyway I'd like to thank everyone that contributed - appreciated!
