Connecting the LJ P1102 to a printer server

HP Recommended
LaserJet P1102
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi

I have the LJ P1102 which is USB only.

I would like to connect it to a Router with a USB port that support printing (It has a built-In Printer server).

However, All I tried has failed and I'm unable to print.

It looks as if the router does not recognize the printer.

I noticed that when connecting the printer to a PC , It shows up as a drive letter in Windows explorer in order to install the drivers that are stored in the printer.

Is it possible that this is the problem ? is there a way to disable this feature so that the router can detect the printer as a printer and not as a storage device ?

Is there anything else I can try ?

Thank you.

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

I suggest you uninstall the printer driver from root level and download the full feature software

 

1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features 
2.) Select your HP Printer 
3.) Select Uninstall 
4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers 
5.) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove Device’ 
6.) Open up the run command with the “Windows key + R” key combo.
7.) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”) 
8.) Click on the “Drivers” tab 
9.) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom 
10.) Select Ok 
11.) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows 
12.) Close Devices and Printers
13.) Restart the computer and download the full feature software Link: https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software13/COL32431/bi-80329-12/hp_LJP1100_P1560_P1600_Full_Solution-... and follow the onscreen instructions

Hi,

The HP Laserjet Pro P1102 is a Host-Based printer.

 

Most print servers support printing to PCL printers only, not to Host-Based printers which are more limited and use the PC resources to process a print job, rather than any internal printer memory which is used in PCL printers, so therefore cannot be used with a print server.

 

I suggest checking with your print service provider, if such a printer type is even supported, for my experience I would doubt it is
