Routers / Switches :: Windows Cannot Connect To A Printer
Oct 26, 2011
we're using a network and only one computer can't seem to connect to the printer. it runs on a windows 7. tried reinstalling it but it seems nothing has changed same error messages is coming up each time i tried to setup the printer.
I cannot connect to the Internet. I have a d-link router/modem combination DSL-2640B that was working on my old XP pc that died. My new laptop is a 64-bit Windows 7 machine that cannot see my router. I can connect to the Internet using my iPad. When I enter http://192.168.1.1, I get an error on EI 9 that says Internet Explorer cannot display the web page. Ipconfig returns an auto configuration address of 169.254.46.231 I cannot ping the router. I can't figure out how to get into my router to reset it. I have unplugged everything, flushed DNS, and restarted with no difference. I can't cut and paste because I cannot get to the Internet from my Laptop.
Currently I have 2 different modem running in my working area which is modem A and modem B. Whenever user from Modem A(192.168.0.1) or Modem B(192.168.0.10) would like to print or scan something using the shared printer, I need to manually plug the cable into either Modem A or Modem B depends on the network the user are currently using.How I do previously is only set DHCP on Modem A and disable DHCP for modem B so that Modem B will share DHCP assigned by Modem A. Both modems connect to the same Switch with the printer cable so both network user can use it together.But the problem now is I have to enable DHCP for both modems and causing the previously method can't be use anymore. So is there any other way that I can link both Modem A and Modem B with each assign different DHCP to link with 1
I have one router (A) (192.168.0.xxx) that serves as internet gateway. Another two routers (B & C) (192.168.1.xxx & 192.168.2.xxx) that serves two sub-net/network, are connected to this router (A). How can I set it up so that PCs in sub-net C are able to print to network printers in sub-net B? Pls note that I do not have full control over router A.
How do I get rid of a 169 ip address on my printer and synch up with router.My HP All In One Serieds 4500 printer has an ip address of 169.254.0 and my router is 192.168.1.0. They need to match in order for me to print wirelessly from my laptop
Our office is set up with one desk top and at least two (occasional) laptops, one HP C6180 'all-in-one ' printer, and a Cisco Linksys E2000 router. Internet access for all computers seems OK, but printer seems to only print from one computer, and is inconsistant as to which one it will be. Have tried to shut down then restart printer. Have tried to disconnect and reconnect router, sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.
I use a Netgear FS605 Ethernet Switch to connect a wifi modem to my network and thus to the internet. People in that room can jump online via the wifi modem. You can also print to the wireless printer in that room via that wifi modem being local. However, I can no longer print to the wifi printer from anywhere else in my network (I could before I got a new router and wifi modem in there).Would this be a problem with this Switch or with the modem e.g.
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.
Any way beside the standard router/printer rebooting, firewall disablity. I am able to connect to my first laptop on which I installed all the drivers on but when I try to add an additional windows 7 laptop
Running Windows 7 32-bit on remote system and Windows XP 32-bit service pack 3 on system where printer is connected by USB cable. printer is HP Color Laserjet CM1312nfi. Windows 7 driver is loaded on remote computer.
I have a desktop computer using win 7 that works well with an hp c6100 series printer using a USB cable. I cannot connect wirelessly to this same printer from my netbook. both computers are using the same workgroup. When I tell the netbook to print it does not display anything, just doesn't connect to printer.
Printer (Brother DPC-150) used to work with Belkin router. After a power cut printer works and router seems to work - on their own. But when I plug printer into USB slot on Belkin the little green light does not come on.
I installed a RV082 at my remote branch and I successfully created a VPN tunnel to my ASA5510 at our core data center.
The PC's that I plug into any of the 8 ports are working fine. However, when I plug in a network printer, it does not work from the network, only from a PC that is also plugged into the RV082, basically locally, using TCPIP
From our data center, I can ping the printer, but the printer shows 'Off-Line'. I even tried to add a TCPIP port, in the printer setup, and it does not see it.
every time i go to my log in it ask for a pass word i did not make a pass word i have put in all kinds of pass words and got no where it will not even give me a hint i have went to safe mode it still ask for pass word . i have windows 7 how to rid the problem so that i can get around the administrator and remove it so that i can make another administrator account.
I've set up a DHCP reservation on a Netgear wpn824v3 router, using its "Attached Devices" list to specify the MAC address of a computer on the network to use IP 192.168.5.200. After using "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /renew" on the client PC, though, the client PC keeps going back to the address it got automatically, i.e., 192.168.5.3.How can I force the client to use 192.168.5.200?
How do i connect two internet routers to one IP address range?I currently have one broadband router connected on 172.16.0.3 subnet 255.255.0.0, I have a second line which is a copper ethernet EFM 2Mb line connected using a Cisco 1800 router configured on 172.16.0.254 subnet 255.255.255.0, no DHCP is configured on either router. the dhcp is provided by a windows 2003 server on our LAN which is also configured on the same LAN IP range. if i connect the Cisco router into the same switch as the broadband router my network devices stop working and dont respond.
If i check the broadband router it shows all the connections to it as having the same MAC address as the Cisco router?? if i disconnect the Cisco router everything returns back to normal and works perfectly.What I want to achieve is to be able to run both routers on the same LAN to provide internet access by configuring the pc's to route through a specific router. the DHCP I want to stay routed through my original broadband line. at the same time i want all pc's to access to the lan devices (ie. servers and printers) what the correct configuration would be for the two internet routers would be?
I am trying to connect 2 wireless routers to expand my wireless signal. I want to connect the router 1 (in 2d floor) to a powerline av and then get the router 2 to the powerline (in the ground floor) so i can have wireless there too. I've tried some configurations i found online, but can't get to make the network functioning. The routers and powerline av are all dlink. I don't mind having 2 networks, but it would be better to have only one
I have a laptop connected to a net gear wireless router (for internet), but I am very close to buying a Belkin network USB hub to make my hard drive wireless, but this requires a router. I do not want move my hard drive to where my net gear router is, so I need to get another router, i am looking at a Belkin router so that I can make my hard drive wireless (This is the only reason for the router, it will not be used for internet) so I can keep my hard drive in the same place.
