This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to set up and utilize a printer connected to the USB port of a RUT955 router.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUT9_R_00.07.01.4 firmware version.


You will need:

  • a RUT955 router running FW version RUT9_R_00.07.00 or newer (FW downloads);
  • a computer running Windows 10 OS;
  • a USB A to B printer cable.


  1. Connect the printer to your router's USB port. Connect your computer to the router via Ethernet cable or wirelessly.

  2. Login to the router's WebUI, go the Services → USB Tools → Printer Server page and configure the printer settings:

  8. Next, the PC will look printer drivers. If the drivers for your printer have been installed prior, you can choose the option to replace them or use the currently installed drivers.

  9. In the next two windows you will be asked you to enter a custom name for the printer and set up sharing rights. The very last window will provide the option to print a test page in order to find out if the printer was set up successfully. If you choose it and see a test page coming out of your printer - congratulations, you have just successfully set up your printer!
