I've got a Hewlett Packard Deskjet D2560 which only has a USB port connection. I purchased a TP-Link WPS510U Print Server which plugs into the USB port and allows me to access this printer via WiFi.
I'm trying to install this Print Server on 2 laptops, a Dell Inspiron running Win7 and a Dell Inspiron running Windows 10. When I first installed the print server, I was able to print to this Deskjet. However, after a few weeks the Print Server stopped working. I have uninstalled it and re-installed it on both laptops to no avail. When I send a test print and then check the status of the Deskjet, it reads "Printer busy or error". I can ping the IP address assigned to the Print Server but cannot print to the Deskjet on either PC.
I've contacted TP-Link tech support and have an open ticket but I'm getting no where with them. The want to conduct a remote troubleshooting session but they are located in a time zone opposite mine. They are only available from 9PM until 11:30PM and I am not.
Can anyone suggest another device that will successfully convert this USB Deskjet into a WiFi device? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
