I'm having issues connecting a HP 9000dn printer to my home network. I have windows 7 x64 with a Belkin wireless router. I have the printer (via a jetdriect 615n driver) connected to my router and the computer will not see the printer. I'm a newbie to networking
Is there any way to disable router devices from connecting to your network? For example I want people to connect ethernet cables to their laptops, ps3s, pcs, etc but not to routers. How would one go about doing that?
My setup: Windows 7 desktop; Vista laptop. Only one user account on each, with no password.I can share files between the two computers, but only by putting the shared files in the Public folders, otherwise access is denied based on username and password.It is inconvenient, but I can live with sharing files through the Public access.However, a printer connected via USB to the desktop cannot be seen from the laptop. This desktop is new. It replaced an XP desktop on which file and printer sharing worked easily with the same network.
I split my network into 2 to make it more accessible during peak time and to minimize internet traffic. However by doing this only the first network can access our Network Access Storage, the other network can access it because the two are separated by different router and switch also the supervisor need to see both network at the same time for monitoring purposes..
We have a Verizon T1 line providing internet for our backoffice network. On this network, we have 4 network printers that are shared between the facility. We recently opted to go with new web based software that neccesitates a high speed internet connection, and 12 wireless devices across the building. We signed a contract with Comcast Business Class internet, so that in the event of an external failure with one ISP, we would have the other offer redundancy with the new wireless router.It has now become clear that our nurses that are on the Comcast wireless network, now need to print from their wireless devices regularly. At the time this is obviously not possible, because the network printers are only on our backoffice network. Buying a wireless inkjet printer is out of the question. How can I make this happen? All of the printers have a local static IP on our backoffice network (Verizon). I have heard of software that will essentially send the print job to another computer, which would relay the print job to the designated printer.
I have; iMac connected to Netgear DG834G router with ethernet cable and epson RX620 printer connected with USB cable/ Laptop running windows XP Media edition which connects ok to network and printer works ok too.Now have new HP desktop running Windows 7 64-bit. I have tried installing vista driver for printer, as per epson site,but I cannot get the printer to work wirelessly over the network.
I bought a new laptop with Windows 7. Desktop is running Vista. Printer is set to share and connected to Vista machine. Printer and file sharing is enabled on both machines. Running Windows firewall on both machines. Disabled Comodo firewall on Vista machine. Both computers have the same workgroup. Both computers have the same user name and password. Password protected sharing is turned off both machinesVista can access the W7 machine, last night W7 could see but not access Vista, but it doesn't even see it. When I troubleshoot I get a message "file and print sharing resource (Vista PC name) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts".
We have printers connected to the network, but I need a standalone printer connected to my workstation due to the confidential nature of some of my printing.I chose a small wireless printer as I already am being strangled with wires and cables.I went thru the wireless installation, and was told to connect PC to printer via USB.I finally got a connection, but not the one I wanted. We also have a wireless router, but connecting to itI got message saying "a connection was made but your PC is not connected to your printer".
I just installed Win 7 pro 64 bit on a new computer / hard drive. I can connect to my router which is hardwired to a computer running Win XP Pro 32 bit, but I can't figure out how to connect to my printer which is on that same network. I can access the internet, just not the printer - which is connected via Ethernet to the router.Is is possible that because Win7 is 64bit and the other computers on the network are 32 bit running XPpro - that it won't work? I have another XP pro computer that is connected via wireless that accesses the printer just fine.I have a netgear USB adapter on both the WinXP computer and also the Win7.Win7 is foreign to me. I can't find anywhere where I would 'join' the mshome network. It asks me about them joining ME.
I've got a small wireless home network that currently has 2 computers - my desktop is running XP Pro, and a laptop that my wife uses running XP Home. I've recently bought a new laptop that is running Windows 7, and although it picks up the wireless feature of the network (it has wireless internet access), I can't seem to figure out how to get this new Windows 7 laptop to see the other PCs or the printer connected to my desktop. I've tried a couple of the "how-tos" online, but I must be doing something wrong. getting my Windows 7 box to see the other PCs and printer on my network
I have decided to set up a simple network at my home. I have got 2 PC's (one ground floor, one up staris), printer, TV and router.Now, my router has got only 4 sockets for RJ45 (no usb connection available). My target is to have one storage hard drive of 2TB for sharing pictures, files and automatic backup from PC's. Make of my router is D-link DIR-615. I want to have PC's connected by RJ45 for quick file transfer and TV as well to load movies from external/network hard drive so 3 of 4 ports are already used.I want to have my printer online in network all the time, so any PC can print at any time without connecting USB cable. Also I do not want to plug my printer into PC downstaris and share it in the network because if PC will be switched off, PC upstaris won't be able to print. So I want all my devices have connected to the router. Printer does not support ethernet interface as well (only usb connection).I've got a choice to buy an External Hard Drive (USB) or Network Hard Drive. I have choosen these two:
As I said, I got 2 devices to connect to my network, and there is also one port available. I know, we got many different hubs etc, but what about printer? It supports only USB 2.0.I have also found very basic NAS on ebay:
I thought I could by external hard drive because it is cheaper than network, and connect it together with my printer to this NAS and then NAS to router. Will I loose file transfer speed?
I've got a modem which feeds a wireless router; plugged into the router via ethernet cables are my personal computer in my room and an office computer. Connected wirelessly is my kitchen PC. My printer (Canon MX330) is not wireless/bluetooth and is connected via USB to my office computer.
Office / Kitchen Computers: Windows XP My Personal Computer: Windows 7
I'm trying to set up a network/file sharing system, and more importantly, I'm trying to be able to print on a computer other than my office computer.
I recently purchased a HP PHOTOSMART D110 wireless/eprint all in one. I have the dir-615 router and cannot get the printer to show up on my home network.Printer works fine hard wired to pc but wireless not at all. The ip address of the printer is 169.254.147.xx while everything on my network is 192.168.0.xx. Printer says connected for a few seconds then disconnected....I have tried to configure it on a vista and a win 7 machine.Everything else shows up fine on my network, as a matter of fact a friend brought his laptop over and it connected great..
My buddy just purchased a Sharp AR-M450 multifunction printer for his small business and it has the optional network card. He wants to take advantage of the network printing capabilities but we want to avoid having to run an ethernet cable from the printer to the wireless router. The entire network is wireless because running cables would be a huge pain in the building he is in. What could we use to connect the printer to the network without running cables?
I have recenly installed a RV082 with two ADSL modems connected to Broadband lines. Access to our networks is done via VPN accounts configured on Windows Vista laptops. The VPN network works fine and everyone has access to their network data and the Intranet/Internet.
I'm having problems with connecting a network printer to access over the VPN. We have managed to get a IBM1532 network printer working using the following network details by allowing the IP address of the printer through our VPN network/firewall.
We had to connect a Xerox C2424 workstation printer on site, so we configured the device using the same network details as the IBM printer, connected it to one of the available ports on one of the Broadband modems but we could not get the printer to be seen or connected to using this setup.
However I connect my own Home Laptop PC configured with the IP port settings above directly to the same modem as the Xerox printer this works but only after we changed the IP gateway address on the printer to match the modem.
If I switch on DHCP on the printer it finds the IP gateway address of the RV082 but will not allow us to send anything to it.As the ADSL lines are on a Dynamic IP rather than Static.
I'm newbie in Networking. I want to establish a small WLAN network where all the laptops (6 laptops) can use WiFi Internet and also can print via a network printer.I have these hardwares:1: DSL Modem2: A Belkin F5D8233-4 300 Mbps router3: A Network printer (with RJ45 ethernet port, Not wireless printer)4: LAN Cable (if needed)5: Finally 6 Client Laptops
I am currently having a problem connecting a hardlined (ethernet connected) PC to a wireless printer. I want to know first of all if this is even possible. If so, how can I make this work? I know just enough about networking to be dangerous, but not enough to see what I am doing wrong. My network structure is as follows: a 2Wire wireless modem/router provided by my ISP. a win xp laptop connected wirelessly a vista laptop connected wirelessly a win xp pc connected via the 2Wire ethernet port a Lexmark 4530 printer with wireless adapter connected wirelessly wireless config is WPA-personal (TKIP)
The laptops are able to print to the printer, but that is only because I used the CD for the printer to setup the wireless printing. When I look at the network neighborhood on both laptops, the printer does not appear. This leads me to believe that the printer is not connected to the network, the laptops have just created a printer connection (the port designation leads me to believe this as it just shows Lexmark 3500_4500 and not an actual address). The hardlined PC can connect to the internet, but is not visible to either of the PC's. When I try to type in the IP address listed on the printers config page, it doesn't see it. I can ping it, but can't connect. I think my problem is in the connection of the wireless printer. I can see it in the connection screen of the 2Wire status page, but I have a funny feeling it isn't configured properly. There appears to be no way to configure the printer outside of using their "wireless connection utility wizard" on the CD.
There is one other twist to this, I have a Dlink DGL4300 wireless gaming router that I use for my XBOX and to give me additional hardline ports for other things. I don't have it connected right now (my box is out of commission waiting on parts), but I did have it connected behind the 2Wire before without any problems. I would like for it to remain this way once I have the printing problem resolved. I am using DHCP right now with auto assigned IPs, but I can reconfigure the network to whatever will allow me to get this to work properly.
I have a home network with an older desktop, two laptops, couple of PDA and now a cellphone. I'm using using a WRT 110 router I bought new a couple of years ago. It run flawlessly even when I switch from DSL to Comcast Internet.My printer (HP All-in-one) is currently attached to the rear of my desktop and if I want to print anything I have to fire up the desktop. Can I plug the printer in the WRT 110? Be able to print form my laptops?
I recently set up a VPN on my home computer. I am wondering if it is possible for me to connect to the internet via the VPN without also being connected to the internet via my home wireless network? Right now, whenever I disconnect from my home wireless network, my connection to the VPN will also cut off. This is a problem because should my connection via the VPN ever be interrupted, my home wireless connection would then "take over" the connection, and the eb sites I'm visiting would then be able to see my real IP address, which makes having a VPN pointless. I'd like to have it so that if my VPN connection is interrupted, I will simply not have internet until the VPN connection comes back.

We got the thing so her ha;f blind mom can play a few games, but I need to connect to download then, either that or know how to download them to the computer then transfer them to the Pandigital?
I have 6 computers connected in LAN network. In one of the machines(client_1) i have installed the VMWARE.VMWare and Clinet_1 are talking to each other whereas VMWare and other clients are not getting connected. I tried various solutions from the internet but all in vain...i would like to have vmware as another machine in my LAN with incoming and outgoing connections to access files.
I just installed my new TV by Samsung UA55D6400. it's great. I understand that it can be connected to local home net. it has Wireless LAN Built-in BU no Wireless LAN Adapter Support. What I have to buy and install in order to connect it to the local net and also stream movies to it?
I have a cable wireless router in the ground floor lounge and have set up a home wireless network. In the upstairs study we have two desktop computers connected to the router via the wireless network. I have a laptop computer used around the house and garden which also uses the wireless network.A laser printer and an inkjet printer are both connected to one of the computers in the study via USB and are shared with all computers.This means that the computer with the printers connected must by running if anyone requires prints. Both printers have USB and Ethernet ports – but running a network cable to the router downstairs is impractical.Is there a way of connecting the printers directly to the network and leave them powered up so they can be used by any of the computers. I am hoping that there is some extra hardware that will enable me to do this perhaps via wireless.Or – would it be possible to use mains Powerline Network adaptors – with one adapter connected by Ethernet cable to the router and other adaptors connected by cable to each printer.
