ReadySHARE Printer is connecting, won't print

Hi,

My Cannon MG2100 series is connecting without issue via the Netgear USB Control Center for mac. No indication of a problem except for when i try to print, the printer queue indicates that the printer is offline. . Printer is powered on, USB Control Center indicates that it is connect to my mac.

Any idea how I can resolve?

Thank you for any help.

I also am having the same problem. My printer is an HP LaserJet 1020. It seemed to work okay last I used it, but this is the first time I'm trying to use it under Mountain Lion. Think there is an issue with compatibility?

castletonron, Usually any major changes in Mac ver. driver can be an issues. Check HP site and/or do HP chat about it. Possible some driver related issues

It's easy to check if it's a driver -- if it works with direct connection, then it's not a printer driver's problem, but Netgear software's.
I have a similar problem on ML 10.8.2, currently no fix.

Re: ReadySHARE Printer is connecting, won't print

could be a firewall issue on a PC or Mac. Check to see if Firewall is set?
I myself have both Mac's and PC's and although I got Ready Share to work fine on the PC's. The Mac's were never able to connect to printer. I went back to using a LAN connection from printer to router. I have a HP Officejet 6500.

No, it's not firewall. It's just completely broken. Tried on 3 Macs, worked only on desktop Mac with OS X 10.7.2 and NETGEAR USB Control Center 2.0. But only the first time you start the Netgear's app, then you'll have to reboot.

I would say its a Mac issue. I have a couple Mac's and while I was able to get a couple PC's working with Ready Share for my OfficeJet 6500. I never was able to get either Mac to work. Even with the Ready Share App. I finally just plugged the Officejet back into a LAN port and had no problems connecting all PC's and Mac's to it. Sometimes things that are suppose to make life simpler just don't.

Re: ReadySHARE Printer is connecting, won't print

I am having the same problem, but I have a PC. The printer was working fine when I installed the my WDNR3800 router. I went back a few days later, and I could not print from my PC, but I could print from my labtop that was connected via wifi to my router. Now, I cannot print from any device on the network. The system says that my printer is ready, but when I go to print, I get printer errors and the print jobs stay in the queue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as this is why I bought this router, to access my printer from all my devices.

Re: ReadySHARE Printer is connecting, won't print

If you are a Mac user NEVER buy netgear. My WNDR3800 PE can not handle a mixed network of a PC Windows XP and an iMac. The advertising that it is compatible with TimeMachine is not correct, the router will drop the AFP connection as soon as the Windows machine logs on to the network.

Ready share printing by Air printing or trough USB connection does not work either. When I install my old and much cheaper Sitecom it works like a charm..

So better by an Apple, Sitecom or an Cisco router instead. None of the firmware updates from x.x.x.18 till version x.x.x.40 has solved any of the above issues and the support tickets I got where closed without delivering a solution. So netgear and Apple not a good match!! Smiley Sad
