I have HP LaserJet CP3525 network connected, it was connected and configured, and was working good. But now it's not avaliable, it just states OFFLINE. But it's coming up when turning it off and on again, for a few minutes, and then goes down again...
I am having trouble networking an HP LaserJet 4100 series printer from a Windows XP computer to my Windows 7 laptop. I have searched and solved the initial issue of the password being asked. That has been taken care of. I am able to search for and find the printer properly on the network, however when I select the printer it says that there is no valid driver found. The printer connects to the XP computer VIA parallel port. I ordered a USB to Parallel converter and I successfully connected the printer DIRECTLY to my laptop and it installed itself without the need for a special driver. So it prints successfully from either computer when connected directly but when I have it connected to the desktop and I try to network it, I still get the error that there is no valid driver.
A friend had an old HP LaserJet 4050 wired to a Linksys 160N router. They use Time-Warner service and had the standard Motorola Surfboard modem. They have four computers on that network, two wired and two wireless. One of the wireless devices is a MacBook the other three are all running Windows 7.They recently added Digital Phone to the Time Warner account so Time Warner came and swapped out their modem for an Arris combo modem/router. Now all the computers are connecting fine but they can't see the printer. The printer is wired to the new modem/router combo box and has an IP address. Yet none of the computers can ping the printer let alone print.Before I chalk it up to an incompatibils and security software temporarily and the firewall in the modem/router was already disabled.
I would like to print to my HP LaserJet 5000 through my WiFi. The printer however does not have WiFi only an RJ45 jack. I bought a TP-Link WR541G router to use as a bridge. My current router is a 2Wire which I get my WiFi from.I cannot physically connect the printer as the location of the 2-Wire to printer is across my home. I am hoping to simply connect the TP-Link to the printer and link the TP-Link to the 2-wire. How to make the bridge
I have a small network of computers and printers in my tax office and consist of three computers running in window xp professional, one computer is designated as the server workstation and the c drive is the share drive and the other two work stations are mapped to the share drive c on the server workstation . so i am using peer to peer networking and these three computers are connected by a seven port router and two other printer are attached to the router also. i am having a problem printing from the computers to these printers, one is a hp laserjet 4200 and another is a hp laserjet all in one 3055.
In the past i just click and i would print, but a few day ago when i click print from either workstation it would que it to printing but it would have a message that it could not find my printer on the network. dont know why it all of a sudden stop working. do not know anything about setting up a printer on a network. do note the printers are connected to the router and not directly to the server workstation computer via usb. So the two workstation and the server workstation have the printer software on the C drive of each computer but for some reason it could not find the printers on the network. How to network a hp laserjet 4200 and Hp laserjet 3055 in a network that is connected by by one seven port router. why is the printers not in the network?
I have 2 XP machines, both connected to a network switch which connects them to a print server attached to a printer. The last print server recently died and has been replaced, but the problem remains. I've downloaded the driver from the printer manufacturers website and installed on both XP machines, one functions fine but after each reboot the printer is grayed out on the other. Removing it and adding again fixes this until the next reboot.I am aware of some networking issues at this site which result in a few dropped packets between sites but shouldn't be an issue here since they are all attached to the same switch.
I have an Canon MP 530 that works great for my home office network, but right now it's being shared off one of my PCs. I would like to network it like my HP LaserJet P2055dn, but not just printing, also fax and scan (via Adobe Acrobat Pro). Does this product really exist.
About two years ago I bought a Linksys device that turned out to be a $100 mistake, but now I'm really needing this sharing functionality.
We have using printer in network, it cause problems daily that we give print in remote i.e., in our system it responds too many connections being used or otherwise network path not found.The printer model is HP Laserjet 1020.
I configured the HPLaserJet 4050 in my home for two laptops today.
Hardware involved in Setup: Dlink Wireless Router for the internet connection at home. Two laptops with internet connectivity over wifi - needing the connection to the printer. One HP laserjet 4050 series printer (to be setup) Problem statement: Wanted to connect the Printer over the LAN cable to the wireless router and the laptops should be configured with the printer settings so as to print over wifi network.
Step-1 Power up the printer. Should warm up with the display showing 'READY' message. Do put A4 papers in the printer tray. Connect a one side of the LAN cable to the printer and the other to the router. In the printer : Click the 'Menu' button on the printer. Navigate till you see 'Information Menu' in display. Click the 'Item' button till you see the 'Print Configuration' in display. Now click 'Select' button. The printer should print two pages of printer configuration with the IP address also mentioned on sheet 1.
Step-2 Now from one of the laptops,ping the IP address from your computer system to ensure the connectivity to the printer within the network. Now follow these steps to add the printer:Go to Control Panel / Printers Click Add Printer Select Local (No automatic detect) Create a new port Select the Standard TCP/IP port Enter in the IP address of the Printer Then add in the drivers when requested for the HP, Laserjet 4050 PS. Now finish. It prompts to print the test page. Go ahead and print one to ensure that the printer in setup. Now repeat the Step-2 for any number of laptops in the home. All should get configured and work fine and should be able to print. No need to test for each and waste paper.
Now you can enjoy printing wireless and schedule multiple jobs and users also without efforts.
I am trying to setup a HP Laserjet 4100N printer so that it can be printed to wirelessly. The printer is connected to the network by an ethernet cable. The tech guys told me to configure the printer as so...
I've got 3 computers (2 desk 1 lap) all running Windows 7. I have 2 network printers. The printers are wired to one of the desktops and the other 2 computers connect via network. The printers work fine once I add them to each computer, but once I restart, the printers appear offline on the other 2 computers even though they work fine on the desktop to which they are wired.I've had this setup for a while and only recently this started happening. It looks like Win7 is messing with the IPs of the printers. I'm not an expert on how to find the IP addresses of the printers though and set them to static (if this indeed is the problem)
Our 6490 CW printer is offline, it went office for the XP laptop connected a few weeks ago and now the Windows 7 desktop shows it as offline, so we cannot print at all. Tried to re-establish factory setting on the Menu for wireless and then res-et the wirless configuation.It finds the SSID but after typing in password etc it cannot estbalish a connection?
I have installed the HP drivers for my HP LaserJet 1102w printer on my Windows 7 (64 bit) Professeional and Windows XP laptops.They both print fine over the network using the WRT54G2-V1 router immediately after installing the drivers. However after shutting down either the computers or printer the settings are lost and the printer willl not work unless the drivers are reloaded.
Recently forgot my wireless password so i reset it and ever since then my printer says its offline and wont print.IVE TRIED UNINSTALLING IT AND REINSTALLING IT but whenever i got to control panel and add printer it never finds it.its definately connected to my wireless because it says connected on the printer.
I have just moved printer locations and am with a satellite and not broadband now.My printer shows Network Printer is not availble and offline. How do I fix this. I have restarted comptuer, looked on line but to no avial
My HL-3070CW printer allways go offline, I have to reboot the system again befor it will print i don't know why,it's a network printer and it happens in one of the system that uses it not all the system how i resolve it.
Just upgrade from an old DIR-524 (or something like that) to a DIR-655. Set up was easy all is working good with the computers. |However, I plugged my HP Photosmart C5100 printer into the router (first slot). The computer seems to know it is there, and the printer seems to recognize the router, but it will not printer. Microsoft diagnostics says that the printer is not ON, and the printer is listed on Devices as Offline. The printer is about 5 years old, but it is a trooper and I don't want to to get rid of it.
We have an HP DeskJet 3050 wireless printer connected by WiFi to two laptops. One laptop, a Dell 700m, runs XP Pro with all updates applied. The other laptop, a Dell XPS 15, runs Windows 7 64-bit, again with all updates applied.The printer works completely reliably from the XP machine. From the XPS 15, the printer works reliably for a day or so, then the icon in Devices & Printers is grayed, indicating the printer is offline. Even in this condition, I can access the printer's built-in web server using Firefox on the XPS 15 and the connection appears to be fine. The printer's IP address has not changed. But the printer is still reported as offline for printing by Windows.
The workaround is to delete the device and reinstall it using Add Printer and Have Disk, but using the already installed drivers rather than re-installing. After doing that, the printer then works for a few days before again going offline.This problem is extremely irritating. I've done Google searches on this problem. Although I've found a variety of similar reports for various brands of wireless printers on Vista or Windows 7, I've not seen a solution. My latest attempt is to share the printer on the Dell 700m and print to the shared printer from the XPS 15. We'll see if that continues to work for a few days (I suspect it will). But this isn't really a solution and not always convenient.
I have recently moved and am trying to connect my Toshiba T115-S1100 laptop with my wireless Canon MP560 printer. I keep receiving "printer offline" messages. Is this a compatibility problem, or have I not set something up correctly?
I've got a Linksys E2000 router and a Brother MFC-7840W wireless printer and they don't seem to want to play nice together. The set-up process was fine and I can usually print wireless without a problem, but every so often I'll try to print and my computer will say that the printer is offline. Other computers on my network also show it as offline. The printer confirms it has an IP address, but even after power cycling it won't be picked up by my machines. I've even tried a full reset of the printer and re-configured it, at which point it is able to successfully obtain an IP address, but it still shows as offline on my PCs.
The only solution I have found is to powercycle the router. This always works. Now that's not a terribly inconvenient workaround most of the time, so I've been doing that for a few months now. It obviously implicates the router as the point of failure, but wireless internet access is not affected when the printer appears to be offline, so obviously some packets are getting through normally.
I recented purchased a used 8150 with a network card. What do I need to do to it to work on my business network of 5 computers (all running Windows 7 Home)? I believe that it has an old IP address stored on it already. How do I change or delete this also?
I have HP laserjet 4000 tn. Had an old router and upgraded to a new wireless router, when connecting it to the new router, the port I connect to has the amber light come on. I have reset to factory setting thinking it would reset and capture a new ip address. still giving me problems. try connecting it to my macbook pro and cannot get a "fix" on the printer either. I know it has to do with the configuration of the printer.
My network layout is in the attatched photo, all hard wired to their destination. The wireless routers in the picture have been replaced with Netgear WG602 WAP's in an attempt to fix this problem. Ive aquired a smart phone (android) and decided to setup two WAP's on my property for mine or my guests' usage. When I connect to the WAP on the android my Linksys Router gets knocked offline and I have to unplug it to get everything on the network to connect to the internet.
I'm setting up a small network (one server, two clients) to create photo sales kiosks at an upcoming outdoor event. I will need internet access for processing credit card payments but there won't be any wi-fi or ethernet internet access on the site so I'll need to utilize my iPhone's 3G connection. I recently installed "MyWi" app which can tether the 3G and even create a personal wi-fi hotspot but unfortunately it only works in ad-hoc mode, not infrastructure.So far, the wired LAN is working great on my three Macbooks, using a Linksys (DD-WRT) router. Also, the wi-fi hotspot is working great to provide internet to all the computers. The problem, of course, is that I can't have both connected at the same time or else everything breaks. I've tried doing an iPhone-USB-Macbook tether and then sharing the connection via ethernet but the internet doesn't get through the router (because I don't have a clue of how to configure the router for this). I've also tried setting my router (DD-WRT) to do a client-bridge of the iPhone ad-hoc wi-fi, but again, it's way over my head and didn't work.
I've got an apple Airport Express and have managed to set it into my network. Airplay works on both Itunes and my phone. However after 10-15minutes the Airplay drops out and the network map shows that the airport express is 'offline'. however the airport express LED remains showing it still have connection to the network. The only way to get it back is to reset the AE. The apple forum has lots of people stating the same problem with WAG120n routers.

I have 2 desktops (running windows 7), a Canon MF8300 printer, and an outgoing ethernet line, all on a Netgear Advanced Cable Modem Gateway CGD24-CPR. I'm only concerned with having the 2 desktops set up with the Canon printer.Both computers have been connected to the printer before and I have the startup disk. But once the new offices were set up and both of the desktops were moved, I can no longer access or find the printer.
I can IPconfig the Desktops for their IPV4 addresses and both desktops recognize eachother on a Homegroup, but I can't find the printer. I printed off the print configuration page from the printer which gave me an IP address (printer is set for auto-obtain), but using an IP search won't bring up the printer.All of the devices are plugged into ethernet ports set up for the three different office they are in and the actual location of the Netgear cable modem/router is over 100 feet away. My primary concern is getting the printer for the desktops, but I also need to add a wireless router into one of those office in the future.
