Question about Linksys -Cisco 16Port 10/100 RM Switch [ SR216 ] (107006)

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

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.

To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0

If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

User's Guide does not contain software installation instructions.


Hello,

I would recommend you to reinstall the driver from the below link. also if you click on Technical support - How to install downloaded driver it will show you how to install it.
-http://www1.lexmark.com/products/view/All-in-Ones/Lexmark-X6570/catId=cat10004-category&prodId=4165-product;jsessionid=36351499255753845B8F3686DDD5E41C.node3

Also in the related links there's user guide for the Printer. it has instruction on how to configure network on your printer.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Konica Minolta 2300 dl is "printing to file"


The port depends on where you've connected the cable between printer and computer.
If a USB connection, select USB
if parallel cable, select parallel
if network cable (ethernet) select tcp/ip port

the driver must match the type of connection (use only 1)

you may wish to uninstall the printer driver then re-install it, keeping in mind which physical connection you have chosen to use.

PSUS4 problem "talking" to Canon S330


Hi dreaddymck
I need a little more information on the setup. Is there a router in your network? If there is, is your PrintServer connected to the router and your computer is attempting to connect to the printserver through the router? If there is no router and your PrintServer is connected to your printer via the USB port and your computer is connected to one of the ports on the PrintServer via a cat5 cable, I would check to see whether you are actually communicating with the PrinterServer by pinging its IP address from the computer. If the ping is successful, then I would look at the printer properties in your computer's printer control panel and check the port configuration. Usually it is shows the IP address, port 9100 and port protocol is usually set to RAW. Otherwise I would attempt to reinstall the PrintServer using the CD originally provided. It appears to me that the server may not be publishing its IP address on your network.
