You have to be waaaay more precise
... No clue at all what you mean with "I have tried".
Did you follow the instructions in the manual of your 3210? Also, that Linksys router of your's ... is that an Ethernet router or are we talking about WLAN?
Basically you should make sure that your printer get's an IP address somehow. Either you need to configure that via the printer's front panel (the manual is your friend!
) and give it a fixed IP address or you need to configure DHCP somewhere somehow ... I don't suggest this as the printer would then likely change the IP address in regular intervals. So having a fixed IP address is definitely preferred here.
Once you got the IP address you have to make sure that your PC(s) and your printer can talk to each other. Please test this using the ping
program, e.g. sending a ping from your PC to the printer's IP address:
- Code: Select all
The IP adress here is just an example; you have to use whatever IP address you assigned to the printer.
Once we are sure that TCP/IP is working properly you can move on and install the necessary drivers for your printer, then add it to your Linux system as "Network Printer". More (generic) details here:
