I bought a Dick Smith wireless print server, for USB printer. seemed like a good price.

It works fine on my old Epson 670.

But on the Epson CX5300 multifunction (for printing, not scanning) it doesn't.

Sends signal to the multifunction but printer then hangs after printing half the first line of a test page and stubbornly refuses to do anythiing more.
THe multifunction works fine with a direct USB cable connection to the computer.

Using Win XP home.

Any ideas?

You didn't use the right incantations. It all works by magic.

However, it might be that the server doesn't work with that printer. :D

Dick Smith understand that. Look up XH8063 on their website.
Click on the more... and note that if it's "not compatible with your printer" you can return it with all packaging, and the receipt, and you'll get your money back.

I agree with Graham L
Most likely will not work, some printers are not designed to network, and just sulk.
