Hello.

It's quite annoying to have windows on a tablet that doesn't support much printers at all.

I got a Samsung ML1630 b/w printer and I'd like to be able to print stuff from my Lenovo Yoga 11.

This printer is currently shared through a windows XP pc but I might be able to share it through OpenWRT in my router (TL-4300) (Untested)


Any suggestions?.

Your device doesn't use Windows RT (Lenovo Yoga 11) so you should be able to install the manufacturer's drivers.

Yoga 11 is windows RT on tegra 3.
You might be thinking of the yoga 11S instead.

I can not pick drivers from a list when I follow that guide.

I earlier accidentally installed the ML1630W driver on win7 but then the printer only printed "Error: Wrong driver used. Please use the correct driver!"

When i try to connect to my printer over the network, I get asked to add a driver, however, it always ends with:

Quote:

Windows could not connect to the printer
operation failed with error 0x00000214

So any other ideas?.

Do not use the XP shared printer. Try to share it using your router. I haven't seen anyone able to use in Windows RT a shared printer connected to an XP machine.
