Today I've just bought a Canon i-SENSYS LBP6000B printer and installed it directly using USB port to my Windows 8 x64 based computer with Canon Advanced Printing Technology for Canon LBP6000/LBP6018 R1.50 Ver.1.10 I've download from Canon website.
Everything works fine and it's a great fast printer but since we have 4 computers in our house, and I don't regularly leave my computer on, I tried to use a D-Link DPR-1020 Print Server I bought earlier to connect this canon printer to my D-Link DIR-619L Wireless Router so other network users will be able to print even though I'm out and off.
But no matter how many ways I tried, I've still got no luck to make my printer work with the print server. It's also nice to mention that the D-Link Print Server was working fine with an Epson Stylus Photo R270 earlier.
I've also googled everywhere for hours and figured out about two things:
1. There is no Print Server on planet earth that supports Canon i-SENSYS LBP6000B.
2. I've read in multiple places and sources that all Canon Printers with CAPT drivers are unable to work with any of Print Servers in world since Canon Advanced Printing Technology only supports basic home uses and does not support or understand network (LPR) requests sent by Print Servers. Is that true?
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately the only Canon website which has a forum based support was the USA branch and I thought maybe CAPT drivers are some universal Canon technology which do not differ on each continent.
Anyway, I emailed Canon Middle East and I hope they give me a reply either solution.
Thank you again.
