I just got Fios and it rocks, both for the Internet speed and TV. Can I connect a printer to the router and network it that way? I have a Westell 9100EM BHR, Firmware 1.02.00.04. I have tried to connect the printer via the USB and also a LAN cable but still cannot access through the router. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a Dell MFP 3115CN
A wired PC, wired Mac, PC laptop (wireless), and a MacBook Pro.
Thanks so much.
USB USB Connector Connects the Router to peripheral devices (e.g. storage) via USB. Note: This
port may not be enabled in all UltraLine Series3 units
it is not active in any of the verizon router's that I have seen
you should be able to with ethernet, or wireless (if the printer is wireless)
I connected my Brother All-in-One laser printer via ethernet cable directly to the Westell router and it works just fine on the default router configuration. It's been a while since I set it up, but I believe I had to open some ports in my firewall to allow the printer to talk to the PC.
As an experiment, you could disable your firewall and try printing. If that works, check the support/FAQ pages on your printer manufacturer's website to see if there's any info on which ports to configure for your firewall.
