It seems that I solved the problem by assigning to the printer an IP address outside the range of addresses DHCP allocated. In my case, the Linksys router has the ip addresses 192.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.12 under DHCP; I assigned to the printer 1.20 and so far it is working. Thank you for your prompt reply.

I have a Dell 966 AIO printer. All of the functions of the printer are working correctly, however, many of the phones in my home have ceased ringing. All are live and calls can be placed and received,...


Setup should look like...


Wall > ISP Modem/Router > Wireless router(if any) > Wired/wireless


If using DSL, a DSL Filter MUST be on ALL devices, phone, answering machine, faxes, etc..., everything EXCEPT the DSL Modem/Router.


You may share a DSL Filter.


Wall > DSL Filter > Splitter > Multiple Devices

I am unable to "enable bidirectional communication" with my AIO 966


Is it connected via a parallel port? If so, then you need to change the parallel port type in your computer's BIOS Setup to EPP or ECP type; Windows will register the new port type and you should be able to establish a bi-di connection.
BTW, does it not work without this bi-directional connection? The only thing you lose is some fancy stuff like ink levels monitoring etc.

How to switch from "offline" status to "online" status


Hi,

I had the same problem with a Brother MFC-6490CW AIO printer. Here is how I resolved it:

Open the printers folder.
Right-click on the Brother printer and display the Properties page
Select the Ports tab.

In my system (Vista Premium), the selected port was a WSD port (whatever that means). Further down the list, there was a TCP/IP port that was obviously created by the Brother installation software. I selected the Brother-created TCP/IP port (which deselected the WSD port), applied the changes, and suddenly my printer was online. No idea what the difference between these two ports is, but I'll stick with the TCP/IP port until further notice.
