Solved!

HP (ex Samsung) M2026W Printer

HP Recommended
Sansung M2026W
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I'm helping a friend of mine get this printer to work from an Android Tablet.

 

I'd like to check a couple of basic things first. Does this model of printer have any Wi-Fi capability or is it USB only? The WPS button on it suggests that it might, but I need to confrm this first before going further,

 

I can print to it via USB from Win 7 x64.

 

The instructions suggest pressing the WPS button for 2-4 seconds and then a LED is supposed to flash rapidly. That does not happen. I can get it to print configuration pages but there is no information about any thing network related. Using the Win 7 wireless wizard I was able to get it to detect a Wi-Fi network and pick up an IP address but there is no trace of any other connectivity.

 

I've seen on other forums a suggestion that a factory reset might help. How is that done.

 

Many thanks

 

Ken

Hi,

 

A second attempt at printing the config page revealed some network information including the printers own SSID and Key.

 

Connecting to that Wi-Fi from a PC and opening the printer config web page allowed me to manually set the SSID it should connect to via its network setting pages.

 

I still see no evidence that the WPS method (with or without a PIN) works on this printer.

 

The manual bares no relation to my experiece with this printer. I'm a network/server engineer and I doubt that most owners would have the patience to follow this through.

 

Thanks

 

Ken

Hi Ken,

The Samsung Xpress SL-M2026W Laser Printer offers USB and WiFi capabiltieis:

You may follow its userguide below to setup the pritner using WPS or via the computer.

 

 

See page 99 to setup a wireless connection from your PC, see 'Access point via USB cable':

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05790048

 

You may also check page 97 to connect using WPS if your router supports a such.

 

You may then print from an Android device using either the Samsung Print Service Plugin:

Hi Shlomi,

 

Thank you for replying.

 

I have read the manual but, as I described in my original post, the printer does not appear to do what the manual describes.

 

Before I RMA the printer as faulty, are there any other steps you can suggest?

 

Many thanks

 

Ken
