Tp Link Usb Printer Controller Windows 10 12

I'd do the above after you ensure the one you did uninstall was not the problem. If you uninstall many until you find the one with the problem, then look at this link, -a-specific-windows-update-or-driver-from-installing-in-windows-10/ as it details how to stop a specific update from installing.

tp link usb printer controller windows 10 12

I have a windows 11 pro OS and a TP Link AX 3000 4-stream Wi-Fi 6 router and a brother Wi-Fi (only) printer. My printer is in a closet 40 ft away from my router which is in another closet. My Wi-Fi is configured to use both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels (Smart Connect) and I'm convinced that that actually seems to work fine. Many devices only work on the lower band, but that seems to get negotiated without my intervention other than I believe there is a setup in the router configuration to enable that feature. I was pretty frustrated because I do have an increasingly large number of devices (clients) using Wi-Fi in my house: 2 pc's, 2 android cell phones, 3 Sonos speakers, 3 WAC fans, one TV, one water softener, one humidistat in my crawl space, one Honeywell HVAC thermostat, and of course my printer.

To cut to the chase, my biggest problem, by far was the Honeywell thermostat. It does not play well with others. It interferes with the Sonos, the printer, and even the TV! The TV would not respond to remote controller commands as quickly as it did before adding the thermostat to the LAN. That was strange and troubling. I wrestled to get the Sonos working for weeks. But the problem was that Honeywell Home thermostat. The thermostat worked fine, it would control the temperature in the house remotely, but for some unknown reason, it interfered with Sonos speakers, Sony TV and the Brother Wi-Fi printer. Once I disabled the Honeywell thermostat Wi-Fi and got all other clients back on line, my life improved. My home Wi-Fi stability was mostly restored. The thermostat does work, only without WIFI. I don't know what the specific problem is but it is not a priority in my life to solve at this time.

You don't need the full cups install since all your PI will be doing is moving a print job from the network port to the usb port. What you need to install is the lpd (cups-lpd) service. You still need to mount that printer onto your computer then share the printer via lpd. You can use the lpq, lpr commands to ensure you have it shared well. Then on your windows computer you will create a new tcp port and point it towards your Pi. If it can't determine what you use you may need to select lpd/lpr protocol. I can say this will be a good learning exercise. While it does work and work well, I might think you could find other uses for your Pi.

If you can get an affirmative with lpq then win10 printing should work. Understand with lpd running on your linux box, there is no processing that happens on the linux box. CUPS is not really involved other than moving the print job from the network port to the usb port. All of the rasterization of the image happens on your windows box and lpr/lpd is just used to move the file to the printer. 350c69d7ab
