  1. Re: Unable to print through a TPLink RE305 Range Extender

    Just to say it might take a few days to get back to this - fiddling takes time and not too much of that at the moment!
  2. Re: Unable to print through a TPLink RE305 Range Extender

    Hi all,

    Interestingly while Laptop2...
  3. Re: Unable to print through a TPLink RE305 Range Extender

    The network looks like this:

    10361

    So the printer is hard wired into the switch. Laptop2 can ping other network nodes via the TPLink extender but not the printer (and hence as expected the...
  4. Re: Unable to print through a TPLink RE305 Range Extender

    So - eventually I have got around to fiddling with this. i downloaded the full driver for the printer from HP NZ and installed. I could not seem to get it to find the printer at all via the extender....

    Thanks Wainuitech. I read the bit somewhere about MAC addresses to but did not think a new driver would have any effect on this. Will try.

  6. Unable to print through a TPLink RE305 Range Extender

    Hi,

    I have recently installed a TP-Link RE305 range extender that works well except for printing. We have a HP OfficeJet Pro 8620 printer that works fine off my two computers (Linux Fedora and...

    Understood - but unless the A4 bit of paper is put away very securely it could be "hacked" at lot easier than a secure file and if it is put away securely it will be hard to get to when you really...

    Re: Dimwit of the month: Lost password

    Can I suggest that you use a password manager such as https://github.com/zdia/gorilla/wiki . There are lots of these around but I like this one since it is cross platform. Many of them use the same...

    You are right - got fooled by the screenshots online that showed the feedback in the menu directly off the cog - should have found that one (thanks).

    If you take an ethernet cable from the new router/WAP to the old one in a new location. The router/WAP you refer to does not operate in bridge mode to be an extender.

    You can use AirDroid to make your smart phone features appear in your browser so you can type a text on your computer - but it is still sent from your cell phone.

    Re: Anyone used dc-battery.co.nz site?

    The good news is that they paid me the refund! I was not really expecting that! In fact I didn't ask for that - all I was asking was "Where is my battery?". I was like they were guilty or something!

    Re: Couple more Linux question

    So you must have had spare space on the disk or made spare space? If you don' t have spare space then it does get a little bit more complicated.

    Re: Couple more Linux question

    Why not consider installing VirtualBox and a virtual install of Linux - for most situations this does the job and is a lot less likely to cause any disaster!
