Model: Archer A7
Hardware Version: V5
Firmware Version: 1.1.3 Build 20210519 rel.50574(5553)

I can't seem to get my Cannon TR8520 to work from the USB on the router! I don't see any settings for a printer. I downloaded some pc utility for USB but it didn't work. What can I do? I have 3 desktop computers on my network and want to be able to print from all! I did have it plugged in the usb of my primary computer but after the last windows update that screwed everything up! My printer is wireless but I don't want to use that function.!!

If you want to use the Printer Server function of the Archer A7, please downgrade the router firmware to the previous version, which is compatible with that. Check this thread:

@Kevin_Z  Thank you for the reply, I found my printer has an ethernet connection also so I tried that and was able to get it to work, haven't checked scanning yet! (where is spell check here??)
