How can I set my Asus RT-N16 up so that people can find it and get the drivers straight from the router instead of having to install the driver and doing that oleg hack. In other words… we FINALLY need a tutorial on how to set it up right! It's not hard to find the drivers. I don't know if I needed to install cups or not. Cups seems to be a little more than I want and it segfaults anyway. Before I put TomatoUSB on my router, anyone could just find the router and connect to it and it would be able to automatically install the drivers on their computer hassle free. Now you have to download the driver from HP and install it and then set it up in Windows. What a pain! Not to mention, I also have Linux on some computers also… Thank you in advance.
Answer: CUPS is the way to go. We just need to rebuild it. As for linux, it's quite easy but depends on your distro. Just try printing from a program and you'll have a chance to add a printer and there should be somewhere to enter a protocol. You'll most likely be entering something like this:
Adjust the ip to your router's ip and port 9100 is for usb. 9101 is for LPT but do you see an LPT port on your router? I hope you don't think you do, lol!
A tip for those who don't really know what they're doing: google your distro and that socket:// protocol along with printer setup and I'm sure you'll get an idea of where to enter the ip:port info…
