TD-W8968 USB printer sharing problem
2012-11-30 17:25:14
Region : Italy

Model : TD-W8968

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : 0.6.0 1.1 v0005.0 Build 120926 Rel.27100n

ISP : Alice (Telecom Italia)


Dear all,

I have just bought this new device, installed, DSL is working fine but not the USB printer sharing. Allways tells me: "This system was not supported yet." Here is the message box:



I have a HP DeskJet 1050 and a Canon Pixma MP150 machine. I know, the HP is not in the supported printer list, indeed Canon is.

So, what can I do?

Thanx in advance!

Greetings from Tuscany,
Stefano

Hello,
I have a Samsung ML-2010 laser printer. In windows Vista I'm able to print via the rear usb port of td-w8968 using the TD-W8968_V1_USB Printer Controller Utility. Unfortunately using a pc running Ubuntu Linux ( in a mixed home network) the printer is not detected using Samba sharing service. This is strange cause I suppose the router's firmware should be linux based too. With my previous router ( Alice gate 2 plus ) printing in linux was ok. Any suggestion ? Thanks in advance.

I agree with you. But I'm sure it is just a configuration issue about the Samba server embedded in the router. Infact I got access to the router via telnet and I found a "smb.conf" file. The problem is I don't know at this time how to modify to enable the printer detection. I have to study to find a solution. Howewer I posted the problem to TP-Link support and i hope in a Solution.
Regards.

This is the smb.conf in the router's firmware:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = ADSL router
server string = Samba Server
security = share
max connections = 6
max smbd processes = 6
deadtime = 1
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
unix charset = UTF8
display charset = UTF8
bind interfaces only = yes
stat cache = no
interfaces = 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0

Now, I'm a bit green in linux programming but... it seems to me that the "printers" section in smb.conf is missing. Perhaps the Printer controller utilily in Windows and Mac create a vitual device as a workoround. Please, Is there anyone from TP-link so kind to help me ?

Uhm, looking at active modules in the router's firmware, it seems that "usbip" module is not loaded (modprobe usbip). Nevertheless in the open source files provided by TP-LINK the usbip i present for compiling. Hey Tp-link: did you forget something ? :D

I am using Linux Mint 12 and experiencing the same issue.

I have reported this issue through Technical Support email.

Has anyone else actually reported this issue to Technical Support?
