Unable to connect WIRELESS printer to WZR-HP-G300NH
« on: October 14, 2009, 10:53:42 pm »
   

I am trying to connect a Lexmar 9300 series printers wirelessly to the G300NH and I can't. Tech support suggested changing encryption to WPA, which I did but this did not help. Working with this router has been very frustrating and I am not impressed with their tech support.  The printer installation wizard finds my network, I type my shared key and it can not connect to it. Have I forgotten to setup an option in the router to allow printing? HELP!!

Can your printer connect successfully to any wireless network? Or do you have any other wireless device that can connect to the router?

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

I have 1 desktop, 2 laptops and a netbook already connected to the wireless network. I had no problems with my old linksys router. I thought I had 'upgraded' to a better product but  this P.O.C  has been very difficult to configure. I am to the point that I am taking it to an e-cycle center and getting rid of it. Tech support provides no guidance what so ever in fixing the issue.

So hmmm you have several devices that can connect wirelessly to the Buffalo router but your printer cannot and yet you blame the router..... OK yeah i see your logic there!

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

A little old post but I like to follow-up for who need RIGHT help here. Goto the setting of your WZR-HP-G300NH, if "Separate Feature" in the "Wireless Config->Basic" is checked, UNCHECK it and apply, your PC should be able to connect wireless printer through G300NH now.
