I’ve recently decided to update my Windows 7 to Windows 8. And as most of the hardware my old Dell has worked properly with the new system, things got rough when I wanted to install my HP printer using Print Server Utilities from EDIMAX. Although they installed properly, there wasn’t any way to force it to find my print server on then Network (ping worked flawlessly). I googled for a while and found some old fashioned installation guide for EDIMAX Print Server from the year 2006. It turned out to be a piece of cake.
We start from launching Settings from the right slide-in menu.
Then we click Control Panel
In the next dialog we choose Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings.
We decide to create a new port of type Standard TCP/IP Port.
We type in the hostname which corresponds the IP of our EDIMAX Print Server (192.168.1.222 in my case).
And after that we choose the driver for our printer. If our printer is not listed we can simply use a disk provided by the manufacturer. In this case we simply click Have Disk… and follow the instructions.
Et viola! It works!
