Canon printers and the Siemens Gigaset SE551 router Printers
Here's what's needed to setup a Canon USB printer as a network printer using the Siemens Gigaset SE551 router. First, on the router:
  1. Plug the printer into the router
  2. Log into the router's web interface (default is 192.168.2.1)
  3. Select Advanced Settings » USB » Print Server
  4. Turn on Print Server and verify the router detects the printer
On the Mac:
  1. Open up the Print & Fax Syste Preferences panel
  2. Click the plus sign to add new printer
  3. Select IP in the toolbar, then set the following:
    • Protocol: Line Printer Deamon - LPD
    • Address: 192.168.2.1 (or whatever address your router is)
    • Queue: lpt1 (in lower case)
    • Name: Whatever you want
    • Location: empty
    • Print Using: Don't use Generic PostScript Printer; select a driver to use. My Canon MP150 worked with the Canon PIXMA MP150 - Gutenprint v5.1.3 driver.
  4. Click Add
It took me forever to figure out that the queue must be called lpt1. Hope this helps!
