Just switched from Optimum to FiOS. I have 2 printers (old, not wi-fi) that I previously had plugged into my wireless router (Belkin N750DB) via USB. I was able to print to either of the printers wirelessly using the router's software. Now have Quantum Gateway and it has 2 USB ports, but I can't figure out how to print. Help pls! If it matters, I mostly use a MAC but have Windows system as well. Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Or you can probably use your belkin router to do it as well.
Can't say how as I don't have that model router, but I would think if you plugged it in to a port on the qantum router in to its wan port, you should be able to use it to connect to printers.
You can probably make the Belkin function only as a print server. You'd need to disable it's WiFi and DHCP server, then connect it to the Quantum router using one of the Belkin's LAN ports. Then, it will be just another device on your network and visible to all.
You should consult the Belkin manuals and/or search for suggestions on the Belkin and other web sites.
