1 Answer

Not all ports seem to work

It started with the printer saying attempting to connect.  Now we have other computers that have worked on the network before that are saying the same, but I have not changed any of the cable connections

We need to get the printer to recognize the network server name or IP address. At present it says "Unable to connect to (DC-260-795622). The server name or IP address may be invalid.

Ensure that all your network settings on the printer are correct, especially the DNS settings. Are you able to ping the printer from a workstation? Maybe you have a bad cable connecting the printer.

Let me help you by starting with a simple step. If that's too primitive, please bare with me. First click on the network connection icon, which should be on the right bottom, which is on your start bar near the time icon. Then click on "Opne network and sharing center". You will have the control panel dialogue box for network status. On it you will see 3 connections. Your computer to the network (wifi router or AP) and from the network to the internet. There you will see an "X" mark or the netwok connection stops rigth after the network (wifi router or the AP). Click on the "X" mark and windows will try to solve the network error by itself or show you whats preventing you to get out to the internet. If you don't see the red "X" or the connect stops right after the wifi network, then you should check with the ISP or your wifi connection provider. In my case, our wireless service provider has a problem with his modem and had it fixed and I was able to have wifi internet again. Please try these if it helps and let me know if I can help you further. Good luck friend.

My printer is showing up on the network. when I connect through the wire it will print fine. if I attempt to print wireless it either says the printer is offline or not responding. i have no idea why this...

From what I can tell it looks like this printer does not have built-in wireless networking. I believe you still should be able to print wirelessly, but you would need it connected to a computer via USB to maintain the connection.
Connect the printer to the computer that will stay on and share the printer on your network (this computer must be on your wireless network). Go to start menu>printers (win7 says "devices & printers). Right click on the printer you want to share and click "printer properties". Click on the tab that says "sharing". Check the box to share the printer on the network and name it whatever you want.
Now go to the computer you want to print wirelessly. Go to printers again then "add a printer". You should see an option for adding a local printer or a network printer. Choose a network printer and it should search your network and find the printer.

Trying to connect 3110 printer to toshiba laptop, with windows7. When you add aprinter it finds the printer, but then says can't connect?

Window 7 is the latest computer system on the market and espected to communicate with any peripheral devices. The printer may not be as up to date with the computer making incompartibility issues. Sometimes the new computer may require a new recently inonvated printer. Observe the printers models may have been incompartble because the software codes that links the gap i simple uninstallable with windows 7. Consult with the computer technicians to attempt an alternate methods to achievign networking. perhaps connecting to another compuer with the printer or acquring a new printer or downgrading the computers softwares to attain compartibility.

In regards to your network setup. As long as your modem is connect to the router you do not have to do anything except reconfigure your new computer for your network. The links below can help you with this.

How to check and change you computer IP address in Windows 7

How to enable and disable printer and file sharing in Windows 7

How to allow ping (ICMP Echo) request through Windows 7 Firewall

How to determine your computer's MAC address

Note when you run the install CD for a router on your computer you are not really installing any drivers on the computer. All you are doing is telling the router your connection settings to your modem so that you do not have to manually enter them.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Persistent "network host busy" error

After working with Lexmark tech support (which is excellent, by the way), it became clear that the problem is with my network (Airport/Time Capsule) and not the printer. (The printer works when plugged directly into my computer.)

Samsung CLP 300 - Drivers keep disabling

The printer is probably not getting the same IP address every time. Set a static IP address outside of the range being used for DHCP addressing. If the entire range is set for DHCP, you will need to adjust that range so the printer's IP is no longer in it.
