Works on the Asante and D-Link versions too
Authored by: mhudson on Apr 13, '03 06:37:32AM

Got my D-Link DI-713P working today folks--thanks tons!

I used a slightly different technique, though. I was able to create my print queue entirely from within the CUPS on port 631.
In fact it seems there are different drivers available from there than from the Apple PrintCenter app. Odd.

Apparently there are several DSL routers with the same underlying components. I had heard that they used basic LPR TCP/IP printing, but the conspicuousness of the Windoze-only drivers that were included with it fooled me.
Thankfully my printer (HP deskjet 5550) had a USB port in addition to the centronics port, so I could use the Mac anyway without swapping cables. But now I can print from another room wirelessly! Cool! Now, if I could only get it working for my Linux boots...
