I have set up my wireless D-Link print server to my Canon iP4850 and it worked fine. I later had to connect it to a usb cable to disable the ink monitors as this cannot be done in wireless mode. To make things easier I created a second instance of my printer and called it Canon USB set to a USB port. My original printer called Canon Wireless is set to the correct wireless TCP port IP_192.168.10.3P1.
Then later with the USB cable disconnected when I tried to print to the wireless printer configured to the wireless port it did not print. But as an experiment I tried to print to the USB printer configured to the USB port that is not actually physically connected and it eventually prints wirelessly after an error message for a few seconds that says there is no communication with the printer.
At least I can still print wirelessly but there is some kind of scrambled port issue that prevents me printing without a delay and an error message. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?
Your advice would be appreciated.
