    is there a network card installed on the machine?

    do you have the install manuals for the machine to set the IP adress?

    you will need to set the printer to a static IP address, (i.e something like 192.168.1.150)

    then install the drivers to the computers.

    I believe the install software will search for the Printer, if not you will have to install manually which is a bit more involed. which I can help with once this is all sorted out..

If you need to network this printer, any of the "large" JetDirect network cards will work.

Lost my network printer connection


creating the network again would probably solve the issue with it because now you are changing up the hardware for the router. so you will have to set the permissons on the router and the permisons on the comuter to allow the connection to the printer the print share network.

looks to me you have the awnser to your own issue, if you list the router model and what operating system you are running I can give you a more indepth break down.

What brand of print server would be compatible with a linksys broadband router and the HP printer?


You asked for any advice. If you want to use a server, you must already have at least a home network set up (it could be wireless or hard-wired). Yes, stand-alone "print servers" are notorious for only supporting certain printers. If you don't know this before you buy, you may find yourself returning your print server to the store. However, instead of a standalone print server, have you considered setting up one of the computers in your network as a "print server"? That's the way it used to be done. That's the way my own network is set up. You would set up your multifunction printer as connected directly to one of the computers in your network. Enable "printer sharing" on that computer. Then do the following on all other computers in the network for which you desire access to the printer: Add a network printer. If asked for drivers, get them off the printer's installation CD.
