Definition: Print server is a function embedded in your Router. It allows you to share your printer with computers that are connected to the Router. 

Preparation:

1. TP-Link Modem Router with USB port which supports print server function

2. USB printer and USB cable

3. Computer with OS of Windows XP/ Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8/ Windows 8.1/10/MAC

 

Note:

1. Make sure you have already installed the printer’s driver on your computer and can print properly when the printer is connected directly to the computer. Otherwise, please install it first.

2. Any computer in your LAN have to install the Printer Controller Utility if it needs to share the print server via the Modem.

3. Print Server Function is not compatible with Linux system since there is no Printer Controller Utility for Linux at the moment.
