Bonjour is Apple's implementation of discovering printers and other devices in Local Area Networks. Bonjour uses the standard IP protocol to automatically discover devices without knowing their IP addresses or using a DNS server. Bonjour protocol has been implemented on Vigor routers to advertise the availability of a Printer or Storage Device (USB)  connected to the router using the Bonjour protocol. 

Bonjour is supported on the Vigor 2925 and 2860 models.

This article explains the steps needed to setup and use Bonjour. The configuration is in 5 parts
