I had some trouble installing the US Robotics USR5436 Wireless USB Print Server on a Vista x64 laptop.

5436

During the “User” setup I encountered an err = 1805 AddMonitor Fail error.

During the printer driver port setup, I encountered a AddPort fail error.

However there where 2 ports installed (USB001 Virtual printer port for USB and USB002 Virtual printer port for USB).
Using these port resulted in an error trying to print a test page, but using a TCP/IP port worked for me.

Here is the complete list of steps:
> Connect the US Robotics USR5436 Wireless USB Print Server to an wired UTP cable
> Connect the US Robotics USR5436 Wireless USB Print Server to the printer with an USB cable
> Turn on the printer
> Connect the US Robotics USR5436 Wireless USB Print Server to a standard power outlet
> Download 5436-files.zip
> Extract the zip and run the Autorun.exe
> Click Setup Wizard
> During the setup wizard the ip address of the print server will be shown, write it down.
> Add a printer:
> Start > Control Panel > Printers > Add Printer > Add a local printer

> Check Create a new port and select Standard TCP/IP Port

> Enter the IP address (written down during setup)

image

> Select Generic network card

> Select you’re printer driver
> The rest of the wizard is “Next Next Finish”

Conclusion: don’t use the USB001 and USB002 ports, just create you’re own TCP/IP port and the printer will just work fine under Windows Vista x64
