"Avoid buying for USB printing features"2.0 starson by straightcomment
Pros: Good wifi performance with all my devices. Range is good.
Cons: - Even with firmware v1.0.01 b3, USB printing feature may not work.
- Does not support custom LAN IP subnets such as 255.255.254.0
Summary: I bought this rather expensive product for its USB printing features.
On 2 of my Win7 x64 PCs, the USB printing feature does not work due to errors with the Cisco Connect software (error 80004005). The Cisco Connect PC software installs a proprietary USB over network printing driver on the PC that does not fully install the printer driver (error and work in all cases with the current Cisco Connect and router firmware versions. If you have another wired Ethernet router in between the PC and wifi router, the printing won't work either. It seems Cisco Linksys support doe not know how to fix the problem yet.
The followingi recommended procudure does not fix it:
- Factory reset on E3200 (30 sec button push).
Windows 7 firewall off
-Cisco Connect full reinstall on Windows 7 x64 ...does NOT fix the problem. Cisco's custom USB printing driver installs, but then the 80004005 error comes up again and prevents the printer from being fully installed in Win7..
