Printer Not showing up in Device Manager on XR500

Hi,

 

I have a Samsung 680ND printer connected to the XR500 via ethernet.  The printer does not show up in the Device Manager.  The XR500 is set to "Use the Router as a DHCP server".  The Samsung printer is set to ask for a fixed ip (within the DHCP range).  My laptop is also connected via ethernet and shows up in the device manager.  I can type the printers IP Address into the brower and connect to the printer.  Why is my printer missing from the XR500 device manager?  

Model: XR500| Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router

Hi elevateX, the printer may appear under the device manager as an unnamed device if the router hasn't recognised the printer. Ensure you know the printers IP address and then try to match it with any of the unnamed devices. Then could can rename it and assign it the type of printer.
