Glad that you are able to do wireless printing too. I still do not have access to the scanner function on my HP all in one printer. It only prints wirelessly. I am trying to work on this. It needs other drivers to do that. I am trying to figure out what. I will post this up as soon as I get that to work.

Jakku, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I tried to install my printer to the router and kept getting to the point of adding the driver and it wouldn't find it. I followed your directions, connected through Cisco Connect, and now I can print from all my computers! I believe the key point is RUN THE TEST PRINT FROM THE COMPUTER WHILE THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO THE COMPUTER USB! What a time saver. Thank you!

Used Cisco Connect (version 1.4.11245.0) installed on HP Notebook to successfully print wirelessly from HP Notebook to HP LaserJet 1320 connected to USB port of Linksys E3200 router (after first having printed from HP Notebook USB port wired directly to the HP LaserJet 1320 USB port).
How do I setup a Dell inspiron 531 desktop PC, directly wired to an Ethernet port of the E3200 router, to be able to print to the same HP LaserJet 1320 printer? (The HP LaserJet 1320 prints successfully when directly connected to a USB port on the Dell inspiron 531 desktop.)

I was able to answer my own question regarding how to connect a printer (in my case an hp LaserJet 1320 PCL 5 which has a USB port) to the USB port on the E3200 router to a desktop PC which is ethernet connected to one of the 4 ethernet ports on the E3200. The desktop PC had previously been direct connected to the printer so it had all the necessary drivers.
The answer is just as one would like it to be. The procedure I used is as follows.

I've been through the whole topic and still haven't find a solution for my problem.
So, I just bought the E3200, I'm on Lion, V 1.4 of CiscoConnect, V 1.0.02 of the router but when I go to CiscoConnect to set up a usb printer, there's still the only option of the wifi printer.
I've tried several times to update the router firmware again, still no change. I even done the reset button and the powercycle like Cisco asks but all this does is reset the whole thing.
I really don't know what to do here. Thanks to those who will help !

Is it me, or E3200 does not support basic printers that use the generic Windows 7 driver, e.g. Lexmark Optra E312? The router does not recognize it at all and says that a non-supported device is connected to the USB port. How hard could it be to have a generic pass-through driver for such printers? I'm very displeased.

I'm having the same "non-supported device" issue with my Brother HL-2140. I am able to set it up with Cisco Connect and print to it with it connected to the E3200 and my laptop connected via ethernet cable, but when I attempt to set up the printer when the laptop is wireless it won't recognize the printer in Cisco Connect.

After Several Months of trying to get my Epson Printer to work, I have finally just given up on it working. The Idea of it work was great but the followup from Support to make this work has been very POOR at best. I hasve no other Issues with the router, it works great but sharing a Printer has failed for me and I choose not to waste any more time. I'll just upgrade to a Wireless Printer

I hooked up a Brother Laser Printer to the USB port and installed Cisco Connect on 2 computers. One is a IBM laptop running on a windows xp professional software and prints fine. The other laptop is a dell inspiron 6000 and it seems that in order for me to print I always have to re-install the printer through Cisco connect and keep it open. If I close Cisco connect computer can't find the printer connected to the USB of the Linksys E3200 router. I've tried everything and was hoping someone has the solution...PLEASE HELP!!!

Try to uninstall the drivers of the printer from the computer. Install the latest drivers of the printers in computer. Download the latest Cisco Connect software from the Linksys/Cisco website for E3200 and then install the Cisco Connect software again for the USB printer and then check the connectivity status.
