Why is my dell 713w showing it is not connected to the wireless network?


This situation has happened to my HP printer. The way that I fixed the problem was to connect the usb cable, then trough the printer software on the computer while computer was connected to the wireless, the printer detected the network through usb cable. Sometimes it takes may be about 15 minutes that my printer detects the network, so I have noticed that I have to give a time to it, because it searches, and searches, and it takes some times.I recommend that you leave the printer on for at least 30 minutes. Check to see that printer detects any other neighbor networks at all, because the network card on the printer may be malfunctioning, and not detecting any network at all. If you can connect your printer to a laptop or a desktop with usb cable and use any software that comes with your printer, it should have the (connect to the wireless ) software facility.That facility will then ask you for your password and it will the set up the printer wirelessly.It is like starting all over again that has happened to me also. I wonder if Dell support can assist you or not, but they should , since they built the printer.Hope all things go well with you.

Print configuration page on a Dell C2665dnf


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.

Hello I installed a network card for my Canon iR3300 and I configured the network port, but I can not detect it, although I just go to the printer from its IP address.


Thry and restart your router, sometimes the router needs a restart to fully connect with new devices. If you can ping the printer using the IP address, it is connected to the router. Check the Sharing settings on your printer. If you don't have it set to be shared, it won't show up an a network.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback. If you need further assistance, let me know.

Thank You,

Brian

Setting Up a Network Printer

Preparation

In order to install a network printer, you must know your printer's Manufacturer, Model Name, and IP Address.

The Manufacturer and Model Name can be found on the printer case, an example is HP LaserJet 4000N. The IP Address can be found on a label attached to the printer. An example of the IP Address is 141.161.888.999. If your printer does not have a label indicating the IP Address, or you can't identify what model it is, please call your printer manufacturer.

Setting Up a Network Printer

1. Click on the Start button, then click Control Panel, then click Printers and Faxes, then click Add Printer.

2. A new Add Printer Wizard window opens. Click Next to start.

3. Select Local printer attached to this computer. Make sure Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer is NOT checked.

4. Then click Next to continue.

5. We will create a new port for your network printer. Select Create a new port.

6. Beside Type of Port, click on the down arrow, then click on Standard TCP/IP Port.

7. Click Next to continue.

8. A new Add Printer Port Wizard will open. Click Next to continue.

9. You must now type your printer's IP Address in the Printer Name or IP Address field.

10. The Port Name will automatically be filled when you enter the IP Address. Do not change the Port Name.

11. Click Next to continue.

12. IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, then you will see the screen on the right. This means that the IP Address for the printer is NOT available on the network. Select the Back button and make sure you entered the correct IP Address. Check to see that your network printer is powered on and displays a 'ready' status.

13. IF YOU DID NOT HAVE PROBLEMS, Windows XP will scan the network to find your printer's IP Address. This may take a few seconds. Select Finish to continue.

14. You must now select the printer's manufacturer and model. Windows XP will automatically select the detected manufacturer and printer driver. Normally, you will not have to change this selection.

15. OPTIONAL: If your printer is listed but you have more than one printer model to choose from, please select the model with PS, if available.

16. IF your network printer is NOT automatically detected, select the Windows Update button to find the proper software drivers.

Note: If your printer is not automatically recognized using Windows Update, please call your Help Desk.

17. You will be prompted to confirm the selected printer driver. Make sure Keep existing driver is selected, then click Next to continue.

18. You will be prompted to assign the printer a Name. You can use the default name, or add more info to indicate the printer location, such as My Office, Hallway, Foyer, Room 222, etc.

19. Select Yes if you want to use the printer as the default printer. Click Next to continue.

20. You will be prompted to share the network printer. Do NOT share the network printer.

21. Click Next to continue.

22. You will be prompted to print a test page. Select Yes, then click Next.

23. Check your network printer to make sure your page printed. Select Yes when prompted to confirm a successful test page.

24. Click on the Finish button to complete the Add Printer Wizard.

Congratulations! If your test page printed, you have successfully installed the network printer.

Note: If you had problems and did not get a test page, please call your printer manufacturer.

Samsung 3160fn network question


You have to have the software set up on the laptop to be able to print from it. Also when you install the software make sure the laptop is hardwired to the router. I have found that if I try to set it wirelessly it won't work. I set it up hardwired to the router then it found it wirelessly. So make it short. Set up the printer on your laptop as though the laptop is actually a desktop. Then it will be able to find the printer wirelessly.

Also make sure that when you check the Network settings on the printer you have the same TCP/IP address for the printer in the PC and Laptops. I posted a long explanation on another post in this forum. You can take a look and find as a solution to someones network problem. The way I do it is to set up the router on the computer first. Hook up the internet to the router. Then set up all the other PCs on the router. Then hook up the printer to the router and turn it on. Then run the installation software for the Samsung and make sure you tell it the printer is set up on a network. See if the software can automatically detect the printer (it should). Pick your printer from the list of found devices and install it. It should work fine then. Also make sure that the Windows firewall is turned off when you do that or have it set to allow local network traffic. Good luck.
