can i plug usb printer into router I

Specs: Windows XP

I have a Billion 6200 nxl router through which I can access the I/net from two different laptops. I have an Epson R290 printer with USB connection which I can plug into the router. The router recognises the printer but I cannot access it from either pc. I am at my wits end!!! Can anyone please advise me.

I think the USB port is for a printer. This N router can have a printer connected to it because it has print server capabilities. Why not go to http://www.billion.com/product/3g/B... and have a llok if you can see a manual that tells you how to set it up. I think the manual is at http://www.billion.com/support/down...

I know when I set up the USB print server on my Netgear router I had to set up a port for the printer and the printer was set at IP address 192.168.0.5 and the manual had quite clear instructions on setting up the port etc for the printer. You still have to make sure you have the printer driver installed. The gateway (router) was assigned the address 192,168.0.1 I don't have the setup any more because I got a new router/modem and it did not have a print server so I got a wireless print server instead. Good luck
