I want to use a HP Deskjet f380 printer as a USB connected network printer, connected with a TP-link TL-WDR3600 router and it's not working.

This question is a duplicate of: Install Network Printer Manually (Router : TP-Link TL-WR842ND)

Since nobody answered there, I wanted to bump the question, but didn't know of another way other than re-asking the question. I did exactly the same as what was mentioned in that question and got the same results.

I also read that the default web-interface for the print server should be, but couldn't connect to the web-interface either. Got the printer working on OSX like OP did on Windows through the auto-connect software of TP-link, but not on Ubuntu. So the printer works through the network by using the auto-connect software, but I don't know how to setup manually. Cups won't find the printer :(
