Adding A Printer RRS feed

  • Question


    I have my WHS hooked to my router as well as my two printers.  When I RDP into WHS and go through the add a printer wizard it doesn't recognize any printers on my network. 


    Any ideas?

  • Are the printers Windows 2003 compatible? Do you have the correct Windows 2003 drivers? How are you connecting the printers to WHS?

  • Do the printers need to be physically connected to the printer?  I thought the router made everything be recognized by everything connected.  Would connecting the WHS to a switch make things any different?


    I do have 2003 drivers installed on WHS for both printers.

  • Is your router also a Print Server? If it doesn't have such functionalities, then are your printers designed as 'network printers' ?
    Do they connected to the network and have an IP assigned to them already?
