Model: AC500
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: Is up to date

I just installed the utility for the USB printer but the printer not seen at all .. This is for the AC5400X .. For some reason, this model is not even in the list .. 

 

Thank you

USB printer service on the routers does requeire a few things.  1.  Printer driver on your computer.  2.  printer installed via USB to the router  3.  Ultitlty to be installed on computer.  This does not mean that every printer will be available or even compatible.  It is simply impossible for us given the number of printers and manufatcures available.  If your printer was not listed but the faux name you selected works then you should not have a problem as long as everything works.
