Wireless printer goes offline

Let's set a static IP address for the printer:

- Print a Network Config Page from the front of the printer. Note the printer's IP address.
- Type that IP address into a browser to reveal the printer's internal settings.
- Choose the Networking tab, then Wireless along the left side, then the IPv4 tab.
- On this screen you want to set a Manual IP. You need to set an IP address outside the range that the router automatically sets (called the DHCP range). You can change the DHCP range of the router using its internal settings page.
- Use 255.255.255.0 for the subnet (unless you know it is different, if so, use that)
- Enter your router's IP (on the Network Config Page) for the gateway and first DNS. Leave the second one blank.
- Click 'Apply'.

Now, shut down the router and printer, start the router, wait, then start the printer.

After this you may need to redo 'Add a Printer' using the new IP address.

From page 185 of the User's Guide:

1 Click Start ' All Programs ' Dell Printers ' Dell C2665dnf Color Laser Multifunction Printer ' Tool Box.
The screen to select the printer appears.
2 Click Network Connection or USB Connection, and then select the printer listed in Select From the Found
Printers.
NOTE: If the printer is not listed in Select From the Found Printers when you click Network Connection, click Directly Input
IP Address/Host Name and enter the IP address of the printer. For details about how to verify the IP address of the printer,
see "Verifying the IP Settings."
NOTE: On Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, printers using IPv6 addresses cannot be detected.
3 Click OK.
The Tool Box opens.
The Tool Box consists of the Printer Setting Reports, Printer Maintenance, and Diagnosis tabs.
This assumes, of course, that you have the software installed on the computer. I don't know if there's a way to force a config page from the front of the unit itself. Just through the software or a browser.

I have an HP Lasejet 1320 printer and I am trying to reset static IP Address as we are moving from one network to another. I need to know how I can determine the mac address of the printer as I can alternatively use the mac address


Hi there,
To find the static IP and Mac Address of your printer, press and hold green button for 10 seconds until green and yellow light starts blinking together, it will take out 3 print outs, 1 is printer information, 2nd will be configuration page, 3rd will be the toner status page,
Also you can Check your printer manual. This is the easiest and fastest way to find the printer's MAC address
Alternatively Print out a configuration page.
If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post
Thanks for Asking FixYA!

I want to connect my SCX 4500w to a new network (wireless). when i try to use a web page to configure the printer settings it doesn't response... I check the IP and write in in my Internet Explorer, but it doesn't find it...


You could try having your Samsung SCX-4500 print out a network configuration sheet. It will have the printer's IP address, default gateway etc.:

1) Press the <Menu> button on your printer panel
2) Scroll using the (<) or (>) navigational arrows until "Network" is displayed
3) Press the <OK> button
4) Scroll using the (<) or (>) navigational arrows until "Network Info" is displayed
5) Press the <OK> button

Your printer should print out a network configuration sheet. The IP of the printer appears in the TCP/IP information on this configuration sheet.

Note: Your printer's IP assignment should be "Static" not "DHCP" (You may skip the following steps if your printer's IP assignment is already "Static")

To change your IP assignment from DHCP to Static:

1) Open up your Windows browser
2) Type in the printer's IP address in the address (location) bar of your browser:

Example: http://192.160.0.100 (use the real IP you found above from the network information sheet)

3) SyncThru should load - Click "Network Admin" or "Network Settings"
4) Click on the "TCP/IP" option on the left side
5) Change the IP address METHOD to "Static"
6) Click <Apply>, then <OK> or <Exit>

Now your printer is ready to be added to your network. You have the information you need from your network configuration sheet. Your install should now proceed smoothly.

I hope this information was helpful!

    DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page


    To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.
