LPv3-U2 Print Server / HP1018
« on: October 25, 2010, 02:33:28 pm »

Hi

i have just got hold of a LPV3-U2 print server, it works OK on the network but when I connect my HP1018 printer it always shows the printer as being offline, The middle LED goes off when I disconnect the printer and is on when the printer is connected. I tried plugging it into my HP7280PSC, that showed online but spewed out dozens of pages with strange characters on them.

 

The 1018 works OK directly to the USB port on my PC

 

Any ideas?

Have you completed all the install steps as shown here: http://site2.buffalotech.com/downloads/Manual.pdf

What OS do you have?

Tried the install steps and manually setting up,  I'm using Windows 7,

 

Searching the web more seems to indicate that this is a "GDI" printer and will not work with a print server!  The only other usb printer we have in the house is also a 1018 so no help there.
