    Default Shared Printer issue

    I have a old Brother HL-2040 printer which works fine when connected via usb to any of the systems here.
    Used to have it connected to a previous modem & could access it via home network.
    I have tried connecting it to our current modem but none of the systems will find it.
    I have been into the modem & it is recognised & ticked to be shared.
    I think it is just a mater of having the correct address in the search bar, but I cant work it out.
    The previous modem actually had the address written to use.
    This current modem is a Vodafone Ultra Hub.

    say no more. Buggy things . Just my opinion , supposedly they are better now after many Patches/updates

    If you are trying to connect printer to Ultra Hub via USB then good luck with that Dont be surprised if that doesnt work .
    Wireless printer via ultrahub was unreliable on one that I setup. Voda would auto update the ultra hub & the printer would have to be setup again.

    I would use wireless connection rather than USB to Ultra Hub , assuming that printer has wireless .

    No wireless on this printer.
    I have updated the firmware on the modem.
