Samsung ML-2165W wi-fi printer [Solved]

Postby gualter666 » Tue Feb 19, 2013 23:05

Does anyone know how can I connect a Samsung ML-2165W printer via wi-fi? I couldn't find a guide in the forum, and see nothing over the web. In CUPS, I can't make it to found the printer.
With the USB cable, i could make it work, but I need to connect it via wi-fi.

Thanks!

If it works under USB then try creating a new printer entry in the CUPS Manager http://localhost:631/ and select 'LPD/LPR Host or Printer' under 'Other Network Printers', specify the connection as lpd://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/lpt1 (find the IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx by looking in your router's list of active devices) and make the IP address static in your router. For example, I set up my Canon WiFi printer connection as lpd://192.168.1.78/lpt1 in CUPS. I used my router's browser interface to find out what address the router had assigned to the printer (192.168.1.78) and then I configured the router to always use that address for the printer.
