Hi, this is probably a stupid question, but I'm a networking dunce. I have a Brother MFC-7340 multifunction printer/scanner/fax that is in a far away room from my router, so I got an ASUS WL 500gPv2 and set it up as a wireless bridge, then connected the printer to the usb port. When I log into the router, it detects the printer fine, but I can't find the printer at all on my computer or in the network. I don't even know the printer's ip address is, so I can't manually add the printer in the Add Printer wizard. Anyone have a step by step on how to set this up? Thanks.
Here is a few guidlines which should help you:
1. Follow Oleg's printing HowTo
2. If after Windows reboot the connection to printer disappers you can use vovkulaka utility: http://www.shcherbyna.com/?page_id=840
3. In order for the scanning to work you will have to:
3.1 Setup ipkg: http://www.shcherbyna.com/?p=960
3.2 Setup sane scanning package: http://www.shcherbyna.com/?p=983
3.3 Setup additional packages, like ink level monitoring: http://www.shcherbyna.com/?p=994
What did the trick ? The Oleg Link I posted or the shcherbyna.com executable file ?
Since your problem is resolved, may I hijack your thread to ask in general if there is any relation between ;
1 - Oleg, and the link I provided
2 - Teddy Bear and his USB mod of Tomato
3 - shcherbyna.com and/or Volodymyr Shcherbyna
Edit - Sorry for my bad Russian.
Your link to Oleg's printing help did the trick. I haven't had any trouble connecting after a reboot. I will eventually use the scanner tips, but I don't have a usb drive to use right now, and I'm in the same boat of wanting to preserve my NVRAM from too many writes.
On the side, anyone know if putting an adblock script on your router will eventually fry the NVRAM?
The adblock that I posted doesn't use NVRAM at all, so no worries.
No need to worry anyway. Quite some time ago I investigated the NVRAM chip in these routers. FWIW, it's in the old Tomato-ND_USB thread on the linksys site.
The chip is spec'ed for hundreds of thousands of erase cycles. As long as you don't go wild, it will have a lifetime of decades.
Yes, but the same is said for normal USB flash drives (i.e., hundreds of thousands), and usually they have greater capacity, so why not to benefit from this?
Just my 5 euro cents :)
These files have viruses.
Just so everyone knows NOT to download them from the links above, they are trojans.
