Hi, I have a brother printer HL-5040 connected to Netgear Print Server PS110 via Parallel Port 1 on my home LAN ethernet network. My problem is I was trying to send a test word doc to the printer from my laptop running Windows 7-32bit but to no avail. I have added a new port on my laptop as follows: 1. Click on Start, then Devices and Printers 2. Select Add a printer 3. Choose Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer and click Next 4. Press Stop and select The Printer that I want isnt listed option 5. Select Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname 6. Device Type: TCP/IP Device. Hostname or IP address: 192.168.2.100 (ticked) Query the printer and automatically select the driver to use And click Next 7. After a few minutes passed, select Custom and click Settings button 8. Under Protocol field, select LPR. For Queue Name, Type L1 (since its connected to Port 1) 9. Next, since my brother HL-5040 isnt listed, I click Windows update 10. After a few minutes, I can see HL-5040 on the list 11. Click OK, then Next, and Click Print a test page and Finish At this point, the printer remained idle. No sign of printing. I then tried to ping 192.168.1.100 to see if its detected over the network, and the answer is I got responses back from the PS110. I know I can talk to the PS110 but why am I not able to print? Please advise me what I should do. Thank you
