printer sharing

I'm using the Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (04/16/10) mega.
I tried to install my "Brother HL-2030" printer at the Netgear 3500L router.
The package kmod-usb-printer is installed.
With dmesg | grep usb the printer is shown as usblp0 but there's nothing at /dev/usb/
I think I have to install a valid printer driver. Where can I find it?
Or is something else wrong with my configuration?

Hi everyone,

Hi everyone,

i found on the page

the following solution for my problem.

I had to do these steps:

As a quick hack to get printing working, I added the following two commands to Administration|Commands|Startup in the Web GUI:

/bin/mkdir -m 755 -p /dev/usb
/bin/mknod -m 660 /dev/usb/lp0 c 180 0



I hope you can use this, when you have similar problems with printer sharing.
