Fix for Apple Time Capsule printing woes with Samsung printer

Old Blog Import

This post is for people using Samsung laser printers with Apple Time Capsule (although its possible that other people are having similar issues). I had so much trouble trying to figure out how to fix the problem, which plagued us for months, that I wanted to post this on my scrapbook in the hopes that other people having this problem might have an easier time finding the solution. Although I should warn you that this doesn’t seem to work for everyone…

I eventually found a solution which works for me on Apple’s support forums. There are so many similar threads its hard to know which one to look at for the answer. I found the answer in this thread:

Open AirPort Utility>select the Time Capsule>Manual Setup>Select the Printers” tab at the top>check the box in front of Share printers over Ethernet WAN port”>click update at the bottom and Voila!!

That’s it. Hope it helps!

UPDATE: Hmmm. Immediately after post this, the printer stopped working again… Should have kept my mouth shut!
