    I have a mini that I had hooked up to a LaserJet 4 ML via an Asante Ethernet bridge. Several times I moved the machine and it was always a hassle to get it back. I'm now trying to connect via a Keyspan USB to Serial Port adapter with no luck. The device shows up in the network setting but I can't see my printer. Try to add it to no avail.

    It's worked before which is even more frustrating....

    Any thoughts?


    Also, no printers are showing up in my list although I downloaded the drivers from HP. When I try to install the drivers that I find in my library I get an error. UGH!

    these printers are great...

    Can you not use the ethernet card? There is a built-in driver for this printer. I have the duplexor installed - works a treat. However, I noticed the windows driver is 600DPI whereas the mac driver is only 300DPI

    Even a crossover cable could do the trick....

    I'm not using the ethernet anymore as I'm now trying to use the USB to serial port adapter. No luck though.......
