    In some internet research I found it appears Sharp disabled the print function of the 355U and 455U so one must purchase the network print card instead of using a network print controller like some have in the past.

    Does the AR-P20 need to be registered with Sharp or does it just need the kit?

    Thanks.

    Just the kit, unless it's a software accessory (PS kit) there's usually nothing to lock to a serial number, not sure about coin op etc as I've never had to deal with those.

    Cthulhu for president! Why settle for the lesser evil?

    the ar-p20 come with two dimm cards and one network card.One is BOOT dimm and another is MAIN dimm.
    You need to replace both dimm cards then you can key in the product key. The product key need to be requested with sharp by using the application no. that come with the ar-p20 kit.
    the ar-p20 already discontinued long time ago.

    The GDI drivers are used for USB printing.
    Sometimes it will extract the package but when it's plugged in it doesnt recognize the printer. In this case, once the driver package setup has been run, it places the extracted .inf file in a folder on the C drive under drivers.

    Once it's in here you can do a printer wizard and use the USB port and "have disk" to the drivers folder on the C drive for the .inf file.

    Hope this helps.

    Sharp usually releases SPLC drivers for USB GDi printing. PCL drivers will not work. these drivers are available along with pcl drivers for downloading. i guess using SPLC (or SPCL) should solve the problem. Farooq

    Is it possible to use an AR-P20 from another machine and get the product key still?

    Nope, not without an act of God (product key support).

    Zootech, do you mean Sharp won't give another key?
